Melanie is available to run parent and staff workshops on anxiety, communication and change.
Her workshops are informative and interactive and will leave participants with a range of strategies they can begin implementing immediately.
Workshops and training packages are designed to fit the needs of your school or institution.
Here’s what participants are saying:
“I feel very positive about the ideas I have walked away with. Thanks heaps” – SL
“Just wanted to drop you a line as we had a huge success with P. this morning using some techniques from your workshop. We signed her up for tennis lessons and this morning she was really anxious, tearful, catastrophising, the usual works. I used the empowering language you suggested re choosing something to help and she chose to go and play piano. We then worked on a simple phrase she could repeat alongside the breathing she usually uses of “I’m feeling a bit nervous to try something new but I may feel really proud of myself after”. She chose her morning chores as the things to be more in her body than her head. There was a complete change in her disposition and alongside the nervousness she was able to feel excitement before we arrived. She stood next to me instead of hiding behind me and she initiated me leaving herself. Once I hoped back in the car and drove away I had some tears of happiness and pride which is such a contrast to the way I often feel going through these things.” – LB
“Thank you for your presentation on Monday night.
I spoke to some of the attendees after the presentation and they said that they intended to use some of the strategies that you explained, also generally they found the presentation informative and that they appreciated your enthusiasm and your passion for wanting to support them as parents to feel empowered to support their anxious teenagers. One parent said they appreciated the booklet, which would be a good reminder to them of the presentation and some of the stress breakers like power pose.
Once again thank you for supporting our parents in their quest to help their young people to be resilient and anxiety free.” – CB
