50 strategies with Dr. Gemma Foxall plus a bonus module with Joelene Lavrick from the Mind Ninja program.

So, How Do You Help Your Gorgeous Child Overcome Excessive Anxiety, Anger Or Sadness??

We Can Help. I'm Joelene Lavrick, B.A (Psych), GradDipEd

When I was struggling to get my daughter to school because she didn't want to go, I finally contacted my colleague, Dr. Gemma Foxall, to ask her advice. She immediately swung into action and helped me understand the reasons behind my daughter's behaviour and developed an action plan for me to use which completely transformed our school mornings.

After this, I again contacted Dr. Foxall explaining that I'd like to take her strategies to the world and I invited her to collaborate on this new online course, Happy School Drop-Off.

I have a B.A in Psychology and was a teacher for 20 years with my main passion ALWAYS being to make sure that children knew how special they were and that they KNEW that how they feel MATTERS.  It is important that they arrive at school feeling as happy as they possibly can.

My Mind Ninja course has taught over 20 thousand children how to interrupt negative thoughts and emotions like anxiety, anger and sadness with outstanding feedback from parents! In the bonus modules of Happy School Drop-Off, I will share some of the strategies that parents and children can use to get to school feeling better.

My program is now helping over 20 000 families in 114 countries, has been featured in several television, podcast and radio broadcasts, as well as reaching the semi-finals in the Curtin University, Teaching Excellence Awards in 2019, 2020 and 2021.
