"Easy & simple tools to help your child understand their feelings, emotions, & thoughts."

Our precious little ones are highly sensitive beings being blasted by modern day society which can result in hyperactivity, anxiety, heightened emotional responses, isolation, difficulty listening, hearing your direction or learning, troubled sleep patterns and so much more.

It’s our duty of care to provide our little ones with the best quality of life that we know possible. Having a trustworthy toolkit full of resources, education and life-skills is a sure way to make a positive influence on your child’s development.

Is your child anxious?
Does your child worry about things at school or in their everyday life?
Do they get nervous, or perhaps have frequent outbursts of anger, without understanding why?
Does your child know how amazing they are?
Do they know that their needs matter?

Our expert practitioner Gerlinde Hayson has carefully constructed 2 separate workshops for ages 2–5 and 5–12 to provide you with easy and simple tools to help you and your child understand their feelings, emotions and thoughts.

- Workshop 1 (children aged between 5–12) 10am–12pm:
In this 2-hour workshop, Gerlinde will teach you and your child how to listen to the important messages of your body. You will learn how certain things make you feel and what this may mean to you. You and your child will become more self-aware and learn tools to support you more gracefully with any situation you face in life.

We will discuss our Inner Resource and the importance of connecting to this quiet place within you, where you feel safe, at ease and secure. We will then draw a picture of something that makes us feel good when we think and feel about our Inner Resource.

We will then choose 4 words to describe our Inner Resource, selecting one of those words to write on our meditation pebble and decorate it. All art materials will be supplied on the day and your little ones get to take their creations home.

- Workshop 2 (children aged between 2–5) - 1pm–2pm
In this 1-hour workshop, we talk about our feelings and emotions and learn tools to assist us in learning how to deal with them. Breathing will be the main focus here and talking about what we are feeling.

We will also read and share from this special book, Visiting Feelings book by Lauren Rubenstein. We will play lots of sounds and feel the vibration in our bodies. We will do an outside activity where we practice using all our senses. We will make a ‘Wonder Jar’. In this jar, we add glitter, glue and water.

"History will judge us by the difference we make in the everyday lives of children." - Nelson Mandela.
