“Feelings are from your heart and what your heart wants to tell you.

Feelings are to be listened to – they are cues and signals that indicate where you are and what you need.”

Claudia Black




"In most classrooms 1/3 or more of students spend their energies compensating for feelings of low self-esteem, inadequacy and rejection.

By implication, we are loosing 1/3 of our youth as productive citizens due to alcohol and drug abuse, depression, violence.
This should be cause for concern!"

Robert Reasoner- 
Past President of the International Council of
Self-Esteem





“I can't recommend Valerie's course highly enough. I had hoped to learn theory,

with some insight and a few tools to help me cope

with the children. 

 

But during the course I found my attitudes changing, stress levels lowering and noticeably happier children! 

 

Discovering EQ has begun a process of turning

my family from regular frustration and outbursts

into dialogue and understanding.

Valerie's passion shows throughout the course and together with the cartoons and excellently prepared material, the sessions were very effective and great fun.”
