Hello, my name is Jodie Smart and I introduce mindfulness and help make big feelings child size! Teaching children how to become a Feelings Detective,® whilst supporting parents, carers and professionals to be their Emotional Coach!
Sunny Kids Shine® was created in 2018 to support children to grow up as secure, resilient and content young people and SHINE stands for Secure, Healthy, Independent, Nurtured and Empowered!
I am passionate about working together for a brighter future and supporting Parents, Carers and Professionals alike, to create emotionally enabling environments for children. I firmly believe that all children should be able to develop a love and zest for learning and life, able to shine their light to become the best versions of their true authentic selves. I perceive all behaviour to be communication and my unique programme is all about empowering you and your children, with the tools you need to feel able to N.A.M.E. your feelings in healthy ways, which stands for Notice, Accept, Manage and Express.
I also support your children to build a secure personal, social and emotional foundation to help them shine through school and beyond.
"Whilst we cannot predict the future for our children, we can equip them with the tools they need to shine through any storms they may face - as secure, resilient and content young people."
