Confident Kids is a series of five, weekly workshops, to equip children with powerful life skills. We help them to build confidence, resilience, positive emotion and self-presentation skills, helping them to develop into healthy, emotionally intelligent teens/adults.

Participants learn about, practise and develop:

  • Emotional wellbeing techniques
  • Mindfulness
  • Emotions–understanding and managing core emotions
  • Meditation
  • Abdominal Breathing
  • Gratitude
  • Self-empowerment techniques
  • Body-brain feedback loop–triggering positive emotion and inner feelings of confidence, through body and voice
  • Preventing and managing negative emotion like fear and anger–resetting the calm state
  • Nonverbal behaviour
  • Vocal power
  • Body language basics

This beginner’s course sets the foundations, teaching simple concepts grounded in science. In subsequent intermediate and advanced courses, we’ll build on and add concepts, with activities and exercises designed to develop attendees further.

The course is suitable for children who are introverted, shy, or those with anxiety, issues with confidence, etc. We provide an environment where they feel safe to learn and develop these life-changing skills.

In each session, as well as teaching the main topic, we practise short exercises in mindfulness, meditation and abdominal breathing, so that participants get accustomed to using these life-changing techniques.

Participants will be able to attend future courses, where they build on what they have learned, to enable them to further grow in confidence and develop into mature and well-rounded young adults.

Review

“My kids have just finished a course in Confidence building with Sophie.

They had a great time exploring emotions, meditation, coping skills, healthy eating, speech training and reading body language.

To say the kids only learnt life skills is an understatement, I was able to watch and learn as well, giving me the tools as a parent to keep the skills developing at home. Highly recommend.”
