Your child will never be the same after completing this course. They will be equipped with the skills they need to manage their minds and their emotions.


This workshop is an investment in your child’s future mental health, sense of self and their ability to respond to situations more positively.  One year ago, I would not have had the confidence to assert something like that but after working with hundreds of children and their parents, in addition to presenting Professional Development courses for teachers and therapists; I can assure you that this course is powerful and effective.

This is a powerful course which will direct children to use their mind to be solution focused, more resilient, optimistic, to know how special they truly are; helping to improve their confidence.  They will learn a number of strategies to improve the way they deal with challenges and their emotions. This course is based on my tertiary study, my experience as a classroom teacher and my ongoing research in the area of emotional health and happiness. THIS PARENT/CHILD WORKSHOP INCLUDES A FREE COPY OF THE MIND NINJA ONLINE COURSE SO THAT YOU CAN COMPLETE THE ENTIRE LIFE LESSONS AUSTRALIA PROGRAM AT HOME. This means you can use the online course to reinforce the strategies and it can be accessed and repeated for one month free.


I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology, a Graduate Diploma in Education (Primary) and nearly 20 years teaching experience in Western Australian Primary Schools.  My experience working as a Drama Specialist for Helen O’Grady Drama Academy in Perth has also allowed me to incorporate a drama based experience for children within my course.

I adore children and I really want them to know how incredibly special they are and how they can learn to improve the way that they think about themselves, the way they think about others and the way they think about the situations that they experience at home and at school.

My ultimate goal is for children to learn to make better choices with their thinking, which leads to improved moods and more strategic reactions to their social situations. I teach them a formula to deal with any situation which may arise. Children have reported to me after completion of this course that they have been able to successfully use the strategies in a variety of situations, both at home and at school.

The younger children are when they start to manage themselves, the better.  I know from my own experience that I didn’t always know how to do this and I missed out on a lot of fun in my life and also created problems for myself when I didn’t need to because I let my emotions and negative thoughts rule the roost.  You have to BE THE BOSS OF YOUR BRAIN.
