"My child and I feel like a team"
“My child and I feel like a team, and we have been able to shift into a place of understanding my child’s lion – I feel that there is more space, curiosity and understanding. It’s not like the big feelings have suddenly stopped, but we are able to deal with the tough moments together, they are coming with less frequency and are less intense.”
Mum and 8-year-old son
"Helps a child understand their emotions"
“We loved the interactive nature of the programme. The child really benefited from understanding her emotions better. She learnt how to talk about her feelings. Staff were able to help her apply the techniques to tame these feelings that previously felt too scary to even think about.”
"Engaging. Valuable. Fun."
“Love the practical tools which are both easy for kids and parents to do and even better they are effective!”
