    Families Central ©  is our course for families that informs, educates, enlightens and empowers parents in the art and science of parenting for 21st century children and includes extra help for expat lifestyles and third culture children.

    It is a practice that combines the best elements of the Positive Guidance and Positive Psychology, child development knowledge, current research in parenting and neuroscience and brings it home with practical and realistic activities that will support you in moving towards the parent you want to be.

    We will work together to find out what you already do well and use this strength to support any areas that you feel you would like to work on. You will be able to discover what your ideal parent is for yourself, whether that involves something from your parents or not, and put it into practice immediately.

    This course runs for six (6) weeks and each class builds on the next. If you don't have time to do the whole course, you can register to attend one of our regular monthly talks to gain at least a snapshot of some of the specific elements.

    We will offer Families Central on differnt dates seasonally, please see our courses page to learn when our next courses start.

  •  The FRIENDS For Life Programme br Dr Paula Barrett is a ground breaking curriculum from Australia for children from 8 to 11 years of age that helps children, their families and especialy the schools to learn about and develop the all-important life skill of resilience that comes through social emotional learning.

    Through a range of gaes, arts, reading and play, children are exposed to all the skills they will need to be a friend to others as well as calm themselves, recognise emotions in themselves and others, make positive invitations to play, do better at schol and work well in teams on projects.

    This course is carried out over ten weekly sessions and includes all materials, course books, relevant parent literature and support as well as two 'check-back' sessions to ensure students are incorporating the ideas and support into their everyday lives and developmental challenges.




  • Mindfulness for Children                                    

    minimindfuls © is our fun six (6) week inspiring after-school programme designed for children to raise awareness of stressors in life and give them the skills to manage themselves.

    In this course children will explore slowing down and finding calm through the use of their senses. Each class explores a different sense through a unique set of activities. Children can learn to calm their bodies and their minds. They will extend their abilities to concentrate and focus generally as well as specifically in the classroom.

    We use traditional mindfulness techniques from Jon Kabatt-Zinn and more recent Mind-Up programme research, powerful models from modern neuroscience and a healthy dose of fun to bring this course to life for children once they have finished a long day at school.

    The programme is also designed to help children improve their own awareness of stressors in life as well as togive them some skills to manage themselves.

    We offer two sessions each term. Please see the details of times and days on our Seasonal course pages.

    Through a range of activities your teen will be challenged to view themselves in a different light and recognise their own strengths.

    We use these strengths to go throug the ROAM curriculum and encourage them to develop their own sense of calm and strategies for what to do when hormones may take over.

    Your teen will gain a new skillset that can make all the difference between stressful dating, homework or exam situatins and make you wonder how they are so cool about everything.
