MAY 11, 2021 @ 2pm BST

I'm in!

If you've already signed up for the Spotlight series, we'll send you the link for Rachel's session. If you haven't, please sign up above.



Sometimes it’s a struggle to understand the reasons behind a child’s behaviour and to determine what is bothering a child. This session explores how parents/carers can boost their child’s emotional intelligence.
Parents will learn how to listen with more empathy and understanding so that children can express their feelings and deal with emotions more constructively.

This session will help you to be more aware of a child's emotions, and how important it is to acknowledge their feelings. Learn how to help children develop emotional literacy, as well as some practical tools to support children's emotional wellbeing. In today’s society where there are increasing concerns about children’s mental health, using emotion coaching will enrich communication and the relationship between parent and child.
