Whole School Approach

Emotional Wellbeing, at the heart of school communities (Please contact me directly for details of this course)

“Methods of any kind are strategies, and strategies do not open the hearts door. It has to be blown open by a great wind, the wind of love, which is the only thing that will truly carry you away.”

- Roger Housden/Kabir

Parents often put themselves at the end of the list when it comes to self care.  This workshop explores the reasons why this might happen, and looks at why this needs to change.  When we fill our own emotional cup first we are in a better place to look 

after those around us.
