This course is for children to complete independently (see example videos) with adult support if required. It also good for children on EHCP plans (UK), children with Autism (due to the steady pace and simplicity of the instructions), however, it can be used a resource for teachers, teaching assistants and youth workers.

Are you looking for ways your child or your class can boost their confidence?
Would you like your child to express themselves in a healthy way whilst improving their concentration and creativity?
Have you tried to get your child to ‘come out of their shell’ but they’re still quite shy?
Would you like an experienced professional guiding your child through the creative art process, whilst boosting their confidence?

This Building Confidence & Self-Expression Course may be just what you are looking for! Designed with beginners to creative art in mind, this course is ‘spot-on’ for ages 7-14 years old.
Each instructional video gives a step-by-step guide to motivate and empower your child to try creative art and see what they’re made of! The creative activities involve, drawing, mindful painting, crafts, music etc (plus bonus activities). They are encouraged to keep all their art work in an art journal which will reflect how hard they have worked but it also visually represents their strengths, talents, creativity & boundless potential!

The Building Confidence & Self-Expression Course is designed to give children and young people the tools they need for self-reflection, self-expression and to create safe space for creative thinking.

About the Instructor:
My name is Le’Siran but you can call me Liz. I help and support children and families for 20years! I complete 121 sessions to boost confidence, help overcome experiences of abuse and support them to understand and manage their emotions. The meaningful work and great results I have seen led me to become a certified Therapeutic Play Practitioner (not clinically trained) and I am also a Life Coach for Women and Business Consultant. Many of my clients have children and asked me to create a course that supported their families – so here I am. I’ve developed this course which combines my experience as a nursery manager, social worker, Barnados & refuge worker (amongst other similar roles) and my love for art and play therapy. I’ve seen first hand, the benefits of working creatively and therapeutically with children and families! It’s wonderful to see them empowered & motivated to develop their emotional literacy, social skills, support them to find their voice, and of course growing bucket loads of confidence!

I look forward to seeing both you and your child on this Building Confidence & Self-Expression Course.
