Hello. I became part of Relax Kids family back in June 2018.
After working and volunteering in Primary education, it was apparent to me that the education system mainly focused on attainment and not emotional well being. I feel that this is where we let our children down, putting undue pressures on our children, pitting them against others to get the top scores in exams. Education attainment seems to have more importance in life, than our children's mental health. The turning point for me was seeing my son upset and stressed because he was not in a certain set at school. This prompted me to take the plunge to become a Relax Kids coach. My aim is to ensure that every child knows they matter. To build emotional resilience, so that they are comfortable with being who they are. To teach them the skills they need to cope with big emotions and feelings and to be able deal with life's stresses. To embrace their uniqueness, to be accepting of others, to work as part of a team, to be positive, be brave, determined and most of all know that it is ok to be themselves. I look forward to working with you and your child.
