Heart Centred Kids
Heartful based Mindfulness & Mentoring
I offer compassionate mindful classes and individual counselling in Sydney to help, support and educate children, youth & teens manage stress & anxiety, sit with difficult feelings without feeling overwhelmed and learn simple techniques to self regulate 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 dealing with 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.
All kids classes encourage creativity, confidence and growth mindset principles, they will learn healthy habits and tools for life long well being.
My intention and aim are for participants to leave my programs equipped with the skills and mindset to thrive.
I believe this starts with having a compassionate relationship with themselves first, being fully seen and heard and connected in community. My intention is for my classes and workshops to be a part of this community where they feel safe, valued, heard, seen and celebrated.

Little Sunbeams for under 5 year olds
Little sunbeam classes help children develop positive self-talk and use growth mindset principles using interactive creative games, activities and play. They will learn valuable social skills and practice being kind and respectful to each other.
Children will learn to recognise and understand their emotions and enjoy age-appropriate moments of mindfulness without even knowing it's happening. The simple skills we will practice for emotional regulation will result in fewer tantrums, better relationships and happier contented children.
Sessions are approximately 30-40 minutes long and include the opportunity for parents & carers to join in and relax together. Come along and spend some quality time together strengthening your connection and leave rejuvenated, relaxed and beaming.
