My name is Ana Arroyave and I am a Social Worker currently working as a mental health practitioner in Child and Adolescent mental Health. I trained as a Relax Kids Coach in 2011 and can honestly say it was a crucial part of the jigsaw puzzle I was looking for. I have done a lot of training on attachment, brain development, meditation and brain based parenting and it has enriched and given my practice something very special! It somehow brought everything I already understood about how children learn and the brain into a comprehensive, child appropriate 7 step programme. I mainly use Relax Kids techniques in my everyday work with parents, children and professionals. It’s so simple yet so effective in teaching children how to regulate and become aware of the different states they experience throughout the day. It gives them practical skills to take away which can be used with the rest of the family and will benefit all of them! I love the resources which are so colourful and have something quite magical about them, there is always excitement when I bring out my Relax Kids bag! It’s a real privilege to to train the next lot of coaches and inspire them to love it as much as I do!
