I am so happy to be part of the happy Confident Kids Team bringing this important work to Essex.
Happy Confident Kids aims to help your child gain confidence, resolve anxiety and develop resilience.
Using techniques from NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) combined with play, we have discovered a unique way to empower children to be confident from within.
Ofsted incorporated the impact that school life and the curriculum have on pupils’ mental health when it developed its new framework last year, and proposals are already in place to make mental health a compulsory part of the curriculum by September 2020.
As a teacher or parent of an anxious child, you’ll know the challenges all too well;
Fear of ‘failure’ outweighs the excitement of trying new things.
Certain situations are so challenging, the child is forced to avoid them altogether.
Instead of exploring a world of possibilities, children can be left struggling in a land of limbo and closed doors.
Seeing any child distressed is difficult for the caregiver, after all, their well-being is in your hands.
But what happens if you don’t have the tools or time to help?
We have a range of options available for schools and parents:
Well-being and Confidence Workshops for the whole school
Workshops designed to be delivered to the whole class from KS1 right through to KS4, tailored to fit into your own timetables.
Specifically designed to give confidence and assertiveness for those pupils who are taking exams and need a bit more confidence.
Transition Workshops for the whole school
Transition from year 6 to year 7 can be a tricky time, the skills the students will learn on these workshops will assist in this transition.
Our 3-week course teaches confidence, resilience, self-esteem and how to manage their own emotions. Taught in a smaller group of up to six children:
We focus on building confidence, self-esteem and resilience whilst beginning to teach calming strategies. Introducing the importance of our own strengths and how to recognise them.
Helping children to make choices, resolving anxiety and how to let go of anything that is no longer useful.
Calm is a skill, a mastery. We specifically focus on harnessing this particular area and consolidates all of the skills learnt over the entire course.
