“Based in Sunderland in the North East of England. I have been a coach for 3 years.
I heard about Relax Kids from working in schools as a School Nursing Sister and knew that children were benefiting from this input.
I work in schools delivering sessions as 1-2-1s, family groups and small classes. I work with young people at home who aren’t attending school and I work for Children’s Services supporting children that they work with.
I love being my own boss, working around being a single mum and having face-to-face contact with children and young people on a daily basis. I love feeling that what I am doing is making a positive difference to these children and young people. My greatest achievement has been working with a child who wasn’t able to speak to adults in school because of his anxieties. He started to speak to me during his first session, his teacher after 6 sessions and now he shouts down the corridor!
Being a RK Coach has helped me with my own mental health and anxieties and has given me so many positive moments on a regular basis that I just love what I do!”
