WE ARE ALL
MADE OF STARS
I created Made of Stars with the aim of providing children with the skills to
manage overwhelming emotions and help prevent anxiety and depression
which in turn I hope will help them live happy and fulfilling lives.
Having been diagnosed with depression in my teens and suffering badly
with postnatal depression and anxiety following the birth of my son
I understand the need to manage unwelcome thoughts and feelings in positive ways.
I know how difficult it can be to find the energy and motivation to look after
mental health when negative thoughts become overwhelming.
It took me a long time to find simple methods of self-care which help
in times of stress, anxiety and low mood.
I use these methods myself and have had positive feedback
from children and their parents saying how much calmer they feel.
Practices children learn now can be used for the rest of their lives.
By coaching children in these methods I hope to provide them with skills
to empower them to improve their mental wellbeing now and in the future.
