Bubbles are amazing, they are flexible and round
And now we are in COVID times, so many to be found.
Not only in our bubble baths, or soap suds in our hair.
It seems that there are bubbles all around us everywhere...
The Open Door...
The news that schools will re open on the 8th of March has given us all a lot to think about, relief, excitement, anxiety, doubt, happiness...so many emotions!
Let Karen’s beautiful new poem ‘The Open Door’ revive and reassure you, ready for the weeks of change ahead...
Reviews for Henry and The Anger Monster
'I found this book and the workbooks very helpful. My personal experience with my own son, being told that at 5 years old he was suffering with anxiety, came as a huge shock. I purchased lots of books to help me understand what my child was going through. We were placed on long waiting lists for him to get the help he needed, and I felt very alone.
Reading the Introduction to the Workbook I wish I had this available to me in the early years. Karen’s description of her own experience of living with a child with anxiety is helpful and reassuring. She has extracted all the important pieces of information that she used and put them into one easy-to-read manual. I feel this is invaluable to any parent or grandparent to help understand what these little humans are going through, and most importantly that as an adult you are not alone.'
'A beautifully illustrated story about a boy called Henry who is struggling with his emotions and handling anger. Henry’s relationship with the Anger Monster gently explores ways to handle anger, with the illustrations subtly supporting the character development.
The book has many layers enabling you to simply enjoy the story or to use it as a prompt text to dig into some of these significant issues with children and young people.'
H.A, (Hypnotherapist & Counsellor)
'Henry and the Anger Monster is a superb story written in an easy rhyming style appropriate for primary school age children. It flows well and it takes time for Henry and his monster to become established before introducing the changes.
The illustrations are colourful, creative and very meaningful.
The workbooks are clear and concise, and they give the adult the opportunity to work through each point in detail with the child.
A stunning book suitable for use at home, in the classroom or the therapy room.'
