Helping your child recognise feelings


No start or finish date. Go at your own pace!

For children aged 7-11 who normally access mainstream settings Starts May 10th 2021.

We’ve all been overwhelmed by strong feelings at one time or another and one thing’s for sure, our feelings escalate even more quickly if we’re unable to identify them or ask someone else for what we need. Learning to recognise how we feel enables us to communicate our needs and improve our ability to self-regulate. This six-week course, which can be self-pacing, aims to give your children this essential skill. As well as benefiting them, it’ll also help smooth the waters at school and at home.

Course Objectives

Each week, I'll talk you through a topic for you to discuss with your child. At the end of six weeks, they'll:

💜 Be more confident in describing their emotions
💚 Identify physical sensations that relate to emotions
💜 Understand what makes them feel that way
💚 Start to develop coping strategies

As well as recognising emotions and physical sensations more easily, they'll also develop the vocabulary and confidence to talk about feelings. Hopefully, they'll also have a lightbulb moment about other people's emotions and how they colour their perspectives and actions.

Don't struggle alone- let's do this TOGETHER! 🧑🏻👨‍👧‍👦👨‍👨‍👧‍👦👨‍👩‍👧

Course Support & Resources

Now, I know what you're going to ask! Can I really deliver this myself? Yes, of course you can! I've lined up lots of support to help you succeed, including:

A designated Facebook group which provides peer support as well as support from me
One Facebook LIVE session a week to discuss any challenges and celebrate successes (or access to the replay if you miss it)
One printable PDF booklet a week so you don't get tempted to rush ahead!
Accompanying video clips
Baseline and discreet assessments
Supplementary activities that the whole family can use and enjoy

What if my child won't engage?

No worries - you're not alone!

Do the course as a family! This is an amazing opportunity to share and discover more about each others emotions and work together to identify calming & coping strategies. This will also divert attention away from your child specifically, leading to improved engagement!

If your child won't engage with the first week's booklet and advice from me, I'll give you a full refund!

I'm not sure I can do the course in 6 weeks!

You don't have to!

You can begin and the finish the course in your own time - all at your own pace!

The first week's booklet should be attempted within the first 2 weeks of purchase, to qualify for a full refund.
