“Using the Colourometers for story- time will have a great impact!

Workshop Feedback from Early Years Facilitators”

“I was introduced to Child Whispering through my daughter's School. I was immediately impressed by its accessible format and exciting messages. I had no idea how powerful it could be. I could not have predicted how much it would increase my daughter’s self-confidence and build her self-esteem.

Feedback from Parents”

“The Child Whispering session was excellent and I’ve already been using some of the techniques. The workshop inspired me to come away with my own action plan on how I may be able to behave/react differently in managing my own children's behaviour.

Feedback from Parents”

“By using their Colourometers children have been able to recognise when their own body language and verbal reactions are on RED and as a result can then disarm themselves. Understanding the effect of both positive and negative communication has helped us all to improve behaviour in the classroom.

“Our Autism Champions Trainer is hugely impressed with the Child Whispering Colourometers and loves all the posters and prompts too.

Nebula Deputy Headteacher responsible for SEND”

“Wow, what an inspirational lady she is. I found her talk very interesting and enjoyed the interactive parts. Some of her stories were quite emotive and it was so clear what a passion she has for Child Whispering. As parents who have chosen the ‘gentle parenting’ approach it is pleasing to hear that this approach appears to continue in school through Child Whispering to some degree. I take great comfort that Spixworth have invested in this programme and can already draw parallels and see the positive impact it is having on my son.
