Parents are busy so I've set out what you tend to ask as FAQs below
What is that you do exactly?
I help children be happier, more confident and resilient to bullying.
Is this therapy?
No it's fun. Because children learn most when they're having fun, playing games and doing activities they love.
What is The Juicer?
The Juicer is the proven mindset tool to empower your child to be happy, confident and resilient to bullies.
Why does it work?
Happiness, confidence and all your feelings come from your thoughts - that's why thinking about your happiest memories - like the very first time you held your child - makes you feel happy. So good thoughts make us feel good. Children use The Juicer to put good thoughts into their heads and get rid of bad ones. They close the lid to stop bullies putting bad thoughts in. Learning how to do this means they feel good - as 10 year old Sophie put it:
"I love putting happy apples into my Juicer because happy apple juice makes me happy. I shut the lid to stop bullies putting nasty nectarines into my head. Simples."
How does it work?
Children learn - through fun - that feelings come from thoughts. This means they can change their thoughts and therefore, how they feel. They use The Juicer mindset tool to do this - putting happy apples into the top (their heads) to make happy apples from their hearts, which they drink to make them feel happy. If they're feeling sad, it just means that a sad strawberry has got in, which they can change with a smiley strawberry. Crucially they learn how to shut the lid on The Juicer to stop bullies putting in the bad blackberries that will make them feel bad.
Don't they teach this in schools?
No. Some schools teach Social and Emotional Learning and PSHE, but they don't teach children where their feelings come from, how to change how they feel or how to stop others upsetting them.
How can I be sure it will work for my child?
If it doesn't I'll give you your money back, but why am I so confident?
Over 1,200 7 to 11 year olds have already benefitted from the games and activities.
32% say they're now able to ignore bullies.
One before and after test revealed they'd be happier and more confident an extra 2 hours a day.
95% said they can change how they feel more easily in another test.
The video on the home page may only have white middle class children but their comments are representative of what others from different areas and of different backgrounds.
Are you a child psychologist?
No. I've been in education and educational publishing for 30 years. I've taken what's helped me in 10 years of personal development and converted that into child friendly games, activities, a comic and activity book by working with 1,200 children.
How many children have benefited from it?
Over 1,200 7 to 11 year olds have already learned how to:
"put happy apples into their Juicers to be happy"
"use confident coconuts when doing new things"
"close the lid on the Juicer to stop bullies upsetting them."
(These are the children's words - not mine!)
