Child counselling: James Parker, (Counsellor and Developmental Educator) specialises in helping young people develop self awareness and coping skills for challenges including Family Separation, FIFO and unexpected changes. James takes a compassionate, strengths based approach to promote a healthy adjustment to change.

Confident Minds Drama for Social Confidence: Katie O’Reilly, teacher and professional actor brings her creativity and compassionate nature to teaching social emotional confidence through the art of drama and creative play. Students love the opportunity to meet other young people who don’t necessarily want to be on a stage, but feel safe getting out of their comfort zone in a small group where everyone grows at their own unique pace. A great way to build confidence and have fun along the way. Drama programs are based on Madhavi Nawana Parker’s books, ‘The Resilience and Wellbeing Toolbox,’ ‘The Confident Minds Curriculum’ and ‘Sanguine: Optimism and Confidence in 21 days.’
