I fully appreciate the fact that there are various free tools available today regarding mental health and emotional wellbeing. However, having been a fully qualified and experienced counsellor for almost 9 years, going on to owning my very successful private practice, I can ensure you that the outcome between using a few random worksheets and my workbook, the outcome is unquestionable.
Within my workbook, you will receive 20 different worksheets. Using my expertise, I have created therapy on paper, promoting your child to bring their unconscious into their conscious.

Emotional wellness consists of our ability to self-care, relax, process our thoughts and emotions effectively, and the development of inner strength. We all to be attentive to both our positive and negative thoughts and feelings, for us to respond within a healthy manner accordingly and, therefore, promotes positivity all round for both adults, children, and all individuals within your lives.
By enabling a good balance of wellness from a young age, encourages and promotes an ability to hold a healthy sense of self-esteem, of which, first begins to rise between the ages of 4 and 11. This age range varies rather widely due to being dependant upon the child's environment and surroundings settings - social and cognitive, where being able to gain a sense of independence.
Feelings of wellbeing are fundamental to the overall health of us all, enabling our thoughts, feelings, and behaviours to successfully overcome our difficulties and to achieve all the things we would want out of our life. As you may be aware, our past experiences, relationships, attitudes etc, all can have an enormous impact upon our wellbeing, both physically and mentally. As our wellbeing has a great deal concerning our quality of life, wouldn't it be wonderful to help your child to understand these basic concepts needed now, rather than later?
By purely supporting and encouraging your children to grow and learn their own way (having parental boundaries of course), establishing positive relationships and an environment where they feel safe and secure with the freedom to express themselves in a way that, well... the vast majority of us parents most likely didn't. For our parents simply did not have the information available to them then that we have today, not to mention the various options of help and resources.
