Other areas of hypnotherapy I deal with
Ollie and his super powers
All too often children are unable to successfully communicate how they really feel. With the help of 'Ollie and his superpowers', they are able to develop their own superpowers and communicate more easily.
Ollie is a character that children can use to help demonstrate how they feel. By utilising Ollie and his super powers, children can learn about their different emotions: sadness, frustration anger, safe, happy, calm etc.
They can learn they have the choice of which emotion (super power) to use.
As a qualified Ollie Coach, I assist children to develop emotional awareness and help them discover their own super powers. Help your child manage their emotions by learning all about Ollie. Ollie gets to choose how he wants to feel and the super powers that will be best at getting him through his day.
We all have lots of emotions or super powers. Ollie teaches us to control which ones we use and when. He teaches us to understand why we feel what we feel so that we can decide if we really want to feel that way or feel something else.
An increasing number of schools and organisations are speaking 'Ollie' and helping children express the way they truly feel. Along with these organisations, parents can also learn about Ollie and therefore give their children emotional awareness, choice and confidence.
