Relationships are our best teachers
At the heart of all good relationships is the relationship we have with ourselves.

Often the relationships mirror back to us how we feel about ourselves. Sometimes we’re attracting tricky friends because we don’t value ourselves and we're tolerating other people's mistreatment of us. When you become your own best friend and you value yourself, you stop doing all that!

Invisible or Ignored

feeling left out and gossiped about?

Disempowered

can't stand up for yourself and let others tell you what to do.

Unpopular

try and get others to like and accept you and hide or change parts of yourself to fit in

Frenemies

stuck in an on/off friendship with high conflict, tears and drama

Is your  desire to fit in and be accepted strong?

If you are aged between 8 – 12 and you feel lonely or like you don’t belong. Or maybe you’ve got tricky relationships in your life – an absent parent, frenemy, a bully, a bucket dipper or a bossypants who takes over and wants it all on their terms. This course would also be helpful for siblings who argue a lot and jostle for their place in the family. 

Children with low self esteem struggle with friendships

“Good self esteem helps you know that every part of you is worth taking care of and protecting.”

Children who have low self esteem lack this belief about themselves and they:

  • find it hard not to win or get upset if they’re not the best
  • suffer with anxiety (social and general)
  • are non assertive and easily influenced by peers
  • have poor body image and cannot accept compliments
  • find it hard to make decisions and don’t trust themselves
  • are highly critical and hard on themselves
  • worry about what others think
  • can become fixers and rescuers - ‘helping others’ boosts their self esteem 

Feel good about yourself and uplevel your friendships ~ you deserve the very best in life!

 By the end of this course, you will be able communicate assertively and set boundaries. You will be empowered to choose the right relationships with people who respect and love you for who you are. You will love yourself more and know how to take care of yourself. You will also have the tools to help you reduce any social anxiety or worries about what others think of you.

"Thank you! You’ve helped me Smiley. Whenever I hear your voice I feel so safe!  I feel like this course has helped me be more aware of who is a real friend and who I want to play with."
Sophie & Eloise, age 10

"We’ve really seen a massive shift in her over the last few months. She still struggles with talking about her feelings at times but the more relaxed and at ease I am, the more freedom I give her, the more confident and happy she is! It was so lovely to see how brave she was facing her fear. She performed her drama show last night and did it with such passion and confidence. She actually looked like she was having fun with it. It’s wonderful to see her confidence growing and her coming into her own. Thank you so much for helping us on our journey together."

"I love it that I can be truthful and not feel ashamed! I loved all the practical tasks and drawings.The journal is great too - I can look back on it when I need to. I've had some cool discussions around school and the people there with my parents that I haven't had before. It's helped me find new ways to sort out things that I've found difficult for a long time. I feel much happier and understood."

Just what we needed!

This course was just what my daughter needed to support her through a tricky time with friendships and school. It was perfectly pitched for the age group, fun and accessible. Some of the techniques such as 'grey rock' and 'poo burger' were great and we use them a lot now. Highly recommended.
