Hi my name is Dolores Andrew Gavin and I am the author of two children’s books. I am also an Assertive and Empowerment Coach and have studied meridian energy therapies and emotional intelligence.
I have combined my studies in these areas to develop a children’s workshop called "I am Wonderful Just the Way I Am".
A motto I use a lot in all aspects of my work with both adults and children is that, when you know you can change then you can change.
We tend to do the same things over and over and because of this we get similar results in our life.
So in this workshop we will be delving into our emotional realm discovering what feelings and emotions are and helping children become aware they have choices on how to deal with their emotions. When we begin to realise that our actions are fueled by our emotions and feelings we can realise just how important an awareness around our feelings and emotions can be. We realise we can change our actions by looking at our emotions and feelings.
We believe that by teaching children how to quiet their minds, calm their bodies, and identify and manage their emotions more effectively that they will have the inner strength to tackle lives challenges from a place of inner wisdom and courage.
We show children ways to quiet the mind and become focused. This is turns helps children to become more confident in themselves and increases their ability to learn. We do exercises which make children aware that they can change the way they react to situations to get a happier outcome for themselves.
We discuss emotions and feelings and ways to bring about feelings that better serve them. We chat about stories and how stories are formed in our mind and help the children realise they can create better story endings for themselves.
We draw, we explore, we become still and learn to let any stresses we may feel go.
I have studied Emotional Intelligence and am an EFT Master Practitioner. EFT is a wonderful tool for children to help them with emotional issues like feeling insecure, problems sleeping, bed wetting and anything else that has an emotional side to it. The children will learn how to tap.
Parents are encouraged to stay and learn with their children.
The cost of the workshop is €30.00 per child, discounts for families. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
