Do you catastrophise? Choose confidence instead!


Want to know how to boost your child’s self confidence?

You don’t learn to swim by thinking about drowning. You won’t build confidence by thinking about fear. Focusing yours and your child’s mind on the power you hold in any given scenario is the best way to empower yourselves, and give your child a confidence boost that lasts. Are you ready to change the way you see things forever and raise a wholehearted, confident child or confident children who can live and love to their fullest expression?




Do you catastrophise? Do you find yourself thinking ‘what if..’ and then listing all the potential negative outcomes in your head? This just sets your mind in a loop of fear-based thinking, lacking confidence, and low self esteem. As an adult and a parent you have a responsibility to shape your child’s mind, and to build their self-esteem, and give them the tools to continue to build their own self...

Emotional Dysregulation Reframed


Emotional dysregulation in our kids and ourselves can show up as 'difficult' behaviour, early trauma leaves the body's nervous system constantly on alert for threat. Try changing your perception to see they/we are just having a difficult time instead.

Early Trauma and Perception

Trauma can be a single event, or a series of events where you don't feel safe. It's the effect that it has on the body; the sympathetic nervous system, endocrine system, immune system and memory. It takes time to heal, the earlier we start, the better.

Tantrums, Hyperactivity and Low Self Esteem

Just trying to leave the house was a nightmare and I couldn’t handle his emotions, which were all over the place. He couldn’t follow simple instructions and calming him down for bed was impossible. Then one day, I trying to tell him something for the 15th time and a song came on the radio and he just started singing it. I mean, it went straight in when my words had failed. And that’s when I knew.

In the beginning, I began writing songs just to help me out. You know, songs to get their shoes on, to brush their teeth, songs to drop them off and to calm them down for bed. But they worked so quickly, I realised I could teach them so much more. You see, music is a universal language. It goes straight into the unconscious mind and it stays there. Forever. It's why you don't remember anything your parents told you when you were 3, buy you remember ALL the songs.

When your child doesn't listen ...

There can be very little that is more frustrating, than trying to get your children ready for school in the mornings.  Teeth brushing can take forever and that's if you can even get the toothbrush in their mouths. And getting them out of the door can be a complete nightmare ... I mean, just how hard is it to put your flipping shoes on!

I speak from experience. As a mother of two children, I have had all the same struggles on school runs. Add in a child who has ADHD and struggles to listen or follow simple instructions and it's a recipe for disaster and I was literally losing my shizzle.

Or at least it was ...

That is, until I discovered the incredible power of music to reach my children where words failed.

I'd been running music sessions for children for 6 years, when I made the discovery. I had always known the power of music to teach younger children, let's face it, we use the alphabet and counting songs to teach our children all the basics, before they start...
