Why MESSS?

Motivation

 Choosing to do something because we enjoy it or find it interesting. As opposed to doing it for an extrinsic incentive or because we feel pressure to do it, such as a reward or deadline.

Empathy

The ability to sense the emotions of others, paired with the ability to imagine what someone else may be thinking or feeling.

Self-Awareness

Being aware of the many aspects of the self, such as character traits, behaviours, triggers and feelings.

Self-Regulation

The ability to remain in control of our behaviour, emotions, and thoughts in any situation. This includes the ability to manage disruptive emotions and impulses.

Social Skills

The ability to interact and communicate with others through verbal and non-verbal communication ( speech, gesture, facial expression and body language).

One - on - One

Private sessions allows us to focus more closely on what's impacting your child at an individual level. With a Master's degree in social work and a variety of additional certifications, I am qualified to work one-on-one to get to the root of their emotions and find a personalized way of overcoming the challenge at hand. 

Our Services

Coming Soon....

I am working closely with some brilliant women to create a series of children's books designed to teach kids various techniques for overcoming general anxieties. Stay tuned because this series is going to be incredible!
