Throughout my wide-ranging 30 year teaching career, especially in my role as a special needs co-coordinator, I have worked with many children and young people who have needed help to reduce anxiety and adopt healthy, positive attitudes to life. I have always been curious about the brain and how it works. Of recent years I have become increasingly interested in the growing information coming from the world of neuroscience related to how we process feelings and emotions. This scientific understanding underpins the programmes I have developed. Feedback from clients: parents, carers and educators show increased knowledge, strategies and techniques are helping them in their own lives, as well as their children. In summary, your emotional health is as important, if not more important, as your physical health and needs nurturing too. The courses I provide mean anxiety, behavioural concerns or mental health problems do not need to develop or engulf you.
