Founder of Essential Being
Hi I’m Jess,
In my decade long experience as a classroom teacher, I’ve noticed increasing levels of anxiety amongst young children. This can show up in the physical body as a sore tummy. I’ve also seen an increase in a lack of resilience and an inability for children to concentrate or sit for long periods and engage with their learning.
With limited time and super busy schedules, it is challenging for parents and teachers to address all the needs of each child – while also teaching reading, writing and social emotional skills.
While teachers lack the time and resources to take a closer, more holistic look at children’s development, often parents sometimes lack the patience and guidance to support their children in these areas.
I am passionate about the wellbeing of all children and work with parents and teachers to create holistic ways of learning and development that are practical and engaging with solution-based outcomes to build long term wellbeing.
