Services for Children and Youth
I offer individual holistic counselling in Sydney to help, support and educate children, youth & teens to manage stress & anxiety, sit with difficult feelings without feeling overwhelmed. Children learn simple techniques to boost their self esteem and manage their emotions using positive psychology & mindful based strategies.
Research shows that children who engage in a regular mindful practice experience improvements in self-esteem, resilience, confidence, emotional awareness, self-awareness, stress reduction and emotional intelligence.
It also improves sleep, increases concentration, behaviour and improves mental health and well being.
Mindfulness has a positive impact on behaviour and can help children who have experienced bullying.
I offer children unconditional positive regard and my unwavering belief in each of them as their own unique and wonderful individuals. I aim to engage, support, encourage and challenge them to live from their heart, to identify, connect & build on their strengths and be the best version of themselves in every area of their lives.
I believe this starts with having a compassionate relationship with themselves first.
