Perhaps you're tearing your hair out because your child is being bullied, concerned about their lack of confidence or getting upset when things don’t go their way. If your child is unhappy, you're unhappy.

What if you could find a simple way to help your child to manage his or her emotions more easily and cope better with life's ups and downs? Imagine if you could bully-proof your child so getting called nasty names simply didn’t hurt them. How would you feel if you could just make sure your child was happy?

You've come to the right place - I'm a DBS/CRB approved children's happiness coach who has run activity sessions with 1,200 6 to 12 year olds and parents over the last 4 years. Here's what children tell me afterwards:

  • They're happy and confident an extra 2 hours a day.

  • 95% can change how they feel more easily.

  • 90% are more resilient to bullying.

So what do we actually do during these sessions? We simply play games and do activities that help children understand and manage their emotions so they can change their mood, feel good and ignore bullies who pick on them. We do this in a fun way because children learn much, much more when they’re having fun! This is fun, not therapy.

Here's one mum said after coming to one of these sessions:

'My children are my world and if I can do anything to give them the confidence they need to be happy, healthy and fulfil their dreams, I would go to the ends of the earth! I didn't have concerns of bullying and my son is a happy 7-year-old without a care in the world, so why did I think it was important to do this session with him? If I can give anything to my boy it would be the empowerment to tackle what comes his way with positivity and confidence. Simon has a great gift of being able to connect with children and soon had Alex smiling and feeling more relaxed. My son sums up the inspiration and positivity we both felt perfectly. "I loved today mum, Simon is such fun. I can't believe how easy it is to think happy thoughts, but I'd like to learn more. Can we see him again?" We will. We can't recommend Simon enough.' Jo Maltby.

And here’s how the games and activities have helped three very different children:

Alex learns to ignore bullies

Alex (8) wanted to be a dancer like Darcy on Strictly. So she’d joined a dance class and became too good, too quickly for the other girls' liking. They didn’t like her, or her talent, one little bit. They’d started calling her a show off because they didn’t like the fact that she was new to the class and and already the best dancer. The bullying had got worse, but it never happened when the dance teacher was around. And Alex didn’t feel she could tell the teacher…what good would it do? She felt sad, alone and lonely. Finally, she just hadn’t been able to stand the bullying any more. So she’d stopped going to classes. I ran one of my workshops in her school 2 months later. That's when she told me her story which she ended with a beautiful bombshell…Because of what I’ve learned today I can go back to dance class. The bullies aren't go to stop me doing what I love doing. And I simply LOVE dancing."

John's confidence blossoms

John (10) and wanted to be a dancer too. So he'd entered a competition to be Billy Elliott in the West End. He'd won through to the regional finals on a Monday morning during the school holidays. Just one problem - he was so nervous about dancing the next day he couldn't sleep. Then he remembered what he'd learned in a workshop with me a couple of months' before. He took control of his nerves and was sound asleep just a couple of minutes later. All was going well the following day but suddenly the nerves were back until, once again he remembered what he'd learned. He put his nerves to one side to give the performance of his life and is now on his way to the national finals in London.

Lauren can finally believe in herself

11 year old Lauren's passion is swimming. Here's what she said after just one session. "I can feel more confident about swimming myself and motivate myself more. I can picture myself being a professional swimmer and making my dream come true. Thank you for making me believe in myself." That struck a chord with me because my dad taught me to swim when I was really little, in fact I swam a width of the local pool the day before I was 4. I still swim today. It's a hobby not a passion. My passion is helping kids be happy, confident and make their dreams come true so their feedback means the world to me.

This session is a great introduction to empowering your child to feel great. I also work one to one with parents and their children to boost their confidence, make more friends, deal with fallouts, improve self-esteem and immunise them against bullying in case they get picked on. We do this together by focussing on helping the child make his or her dreams come true - whether that's to be a nurse, author, racing car driver or a shorter term goal like making the football team. You'll always be present when I'm coaching your children and involved in the conversation every step of the way.
