The Story so far

My husband Troy and I have been building kids confidence in and out of the pool for over 25 years. We have run swim schools and our Empowering our Kids Studio. We have helped kids to Believe, Dream and Achieve the biggest goals they can.  Our dream is to transform anxiety into Super Powers through Creative Process Art Activities.

We are parents to 3 beautiful girls and one beautiful granddaughter and a brand new grandson and have gone through many stages of life with our beautiful girls. Ups and Downs!

If you are looking for clarity, spark curiosity and create an Empowered Teen you are in the right place.

The Problem:

The hardest thing I have done as a MUM is to watch a child start school with so much confidence and then lose confidence due to not being able to learn the same way as the other kids due to SPD and dyslexia (and a countless number of other labels due to not being able to understand the child and learning ways) and countless snickers and bullying from the other children knocking her confidence to the point she did not want to learn anymore.

The Solution:

Finding my Childs personal learning style! Yes that is correct we all have our own unique way of learning and once uncovered our individualised learning path will shine.

We started homeschooling our third child in year 5 and absolutely loved the process and the love of learning returned and No not everyone has this option.

On our homeschool journey we have played with several different styles of homeschooling – Charlotte Mason, Unit study, Waldorf/Steiner and we definitely have an eclectic style of homeschool.

The biggest thing I have learnt is Journals and ART!!!

I absolutely love Journals, even when I was a little girl, I have loved to keep a diary. Then at work notebooks for notebooks ( always had doodles and sketches of thoughts in the margins).

Homeschool every subject has a journal and our Nature Journals would be by far our favourite. At first I didn’t understand how this helped so much then when we did the TDYP it uncovered that my daughter loved systems, was very creative and needed all her senses to be in order, not overstimulated but needed to be able to use them.

Now lets add Art to the mix, I could never decide on which media to use, So why not just use all of them. I found mixed media and the journals became more alive. Art Journals have become a daily practice and by no means is there just one!!! I love to share how to start, what to use, journal prompts for ideas, watercolour explorations or just doodles.

Again the hands on approach and finding Strengths and focusing on Strengths rather then continually focusing on weaknesses brought a new POWER of confidence.

We used so many tools along the way yoga, meditation, EFT, neuroptimal, movement and dance of all sorts and they all helped along the way to transform her anxiety for not wanting to go to school due to not learning the same way as all the other kids and the same way the system allowed.

In a classroom this is hard as 25 to 30 kids all have their own way of learning but adding a multi modal approach really helped strengthen all areas of her energies.


We know not everyone can homeschool their children and especially in high school so that is why we have created our Play, Create and Discover and Mindfulness Programs.

We also know not everyone can homeschool and want to stay at school so that is why the online program was born to help parents learn and navigate the tools to use at home with your own kids in your own time.

Our monthly zoom workspace has created a time we can work together and ask questions.

The Problem 2:

Children are not all made the same or the rule that one size its all rule, we have over the years tried and tested many ways to build kids confidence so they can achieve anything they want in life.  Do you have an out of the box kid that needs to learn a different way and lets face it we all need to learn differently and be loved differently. Otherwise what a sad old world we would live in.

The Solution:

I am a  Life Coach I have mastered in CBT, Art therapy, mindfulness, Anxiety and dyslexia. I am a Positive Art Coach who can’t wait to start you on your Art for relaxation journey.

We run workshops and classes to inspire kids and parents to love the Process of Art and Journals.

We know not every one is in the situation that they can stay at home to educate your child at home, we are extremely lucky to be able to go on this journey, but we have found tools to help our child these include nature study, yoga, meditation, reading aloud, art, art and more art.

Brain tools to retrain the brain and we are here to share our tools to help you with your journey.

These are all tools you can add to your life to help your child.

We run workshops for parents to learn the tools to use at home with their kids.

We believe everyone has to be on the same page.

That is why we need to work together so we can find the SuperPowers together.
