'THESE THREE WORDS'
Life would be perfect for Luna-Ray if only she didn't have to go to school. And if her family were different and her friends actually liked her. Better yet, maybe if she was a different person altogether, preferably a person who didn't have anxiety about absolutely everything. Just as Luna begins to think all hope is lost, she meets Sadie Rainbow, a counsellor who supports Luna through a journey of self-discovery, where she learns coping strategies that really work and finds the power that can be hidden within three words.
'These Three Words' is a unique therapeutic novel for teenagers with the aim of linking together the feelings, emotions and behaviours connected to anxiety, with some of the therapeutic tools that can be used in order to enable better self-regulation, increased confidence and different ways of thinking. The book is equally valuable to parents of teenagers with anxiety, giving them an insight and understanding into some of the issues that may be affecting their child, and potentially opening up a line of communication and a way forward between parent and teen.
Co-author 'What a Muddle' Childrens therapeutic workbook
'What a Muddle' is a workbook that is designed to explain to the child what can happen in the brain when emotional dysregulation occurs. While behaviour modification techniques are effective for most children, there are an increasing number of children, particularly those who have experienced early trauma, who are unable to quickly access the cortex, or thinking brain, to modify behaviour. 'What a Muddle' targets the brainstem as oppose to the cortex, providing exercises and activities that promote changes in emotional regulation as well as increasing the child's sense of confidence and self worth.
