Meet Jess the founder of Essential Being

Hi I’m Jess, the founder of Essential Being for Kids and the creator of our unique Learning and Development Coaching Program for children.

Parents today are bombarded with ways to support their kids, often running from one specialist to the next.

In my decade long experience as a classroom teacher, I’ve noticed increasing levels of anxiety amongst young children.  This often shows up physically as a child with 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 teachers and parents to address all the needs of each child – while also teaching reading, writing and social emotional skills. 

Teachers lack the time and resources to take a closer, more holistic look at children’s development, while 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.

Holistic approach to learning and development

My goal is to help empower children to maximise their wellbeing by improving their sleep and eating routines, harnessing creativity for self-expression and free-will, enabling harmonious relationships, increasing focus for better academic performance, building confidence without the need for others approval and creating the capacity to spend time alone and feeling content so as to find happiness within. 

I have identified different blocks of learning and development activity to help children fulfill key aspects of their life.

  • Physical harmony – upward and downward energy, disease vs health
  • Emotional harmony – awareness and acceptance of all emotions and feelings, family dynamics and resilience 
  • Social harmony – improved relationships, communication, boundaries, acceptance of others, personal contribution
  • Mental harmony – ability to focus and concentrate, improved academic performance, overcoming limiting beliefs, identifying strengths and weaknesses 
  • Spiritual harmony – aligning and living personal values to avoid feeling stuck or blocked!
