Alison Greene recommends Carmy's Calm Kids Life

My daughter who is 9 years old has really struggled since her Dad and I divorced nearly 3 years ago. She has been steadily getting worse, struggling to come to terms with all the stresses that two separate homes brings. She used to be a confident, happy young girl, but has over time got less and less confident, and in her words, ‘she is sad’. Having a child who is 90% of the time unhappy has been a challenge for us all. I could see that her unhappy and negative state of mind was affecting her overall mental health and sought recommendations in the local area for a child counsellor. When somebody suggested using a Kids Life coach , called Carmy, I thought this could be just the help she needed.
So we enrolled for a course of 4 sessions, all done safely over Zoom to comply with CV19. Very quickly after a couple of sessions with Carmy, our daughter’s bedtime routine started to improve significantly. What was a 2 hour nightly session with lots of tears and sadness, had transformed into a structured, calm and quick ‘normal’ bedtime routine. Her whole body language started to change, she wanted to get involved with things around the house, there was a skip in her step, and she was very easily building positive relations with everybody in the house, as she felt her self worth improve. Using a number of techniques, Carmy has in just 4 short weekly sessions, been able to unlock her sadness, improve her positive thoughts about herself and those around her, boost her confidence and most importantly she has become a happier child. Everybody wants their kids to have happy memories as a child, and thanks to Carmy , I now feel confident that our daughter is back on the right path! I cannot recommend Carmy highly enough.

I would definitely recommend Carmy!

She is so lovely and has made a huge difference in my son's confidence and positivity.
He was diagnosed with a chronic illness in February and was becoming very annoyed, anxious and depressed.
The coaching sessions are fun & interactive & he looked forward to seeing Carmy each week.
Carmy has kept me well informed of the topics discussed and goals he has set himself.
It's been a brilliant experience for us and I am so grateful that Carmy came into our lives, at a time where we were all beginning to struggle and really needed somebody outside of the family to help my son see that he really is amazing and he can cope with anything life throws at him!
Thank you Carmy & i wish you so much luck with your new venture x

‘I would definitely recommend Carmy as a life coach...

she has a nice calming voice and the activities we do are fun. I especially like the finger thumb game!
The tools are fun and my favourites are the ball that changes colour and the squishy brain!
The best bit for me is the mind holidays as they are relaxing and the calm music is nice.
Before Carmy helped me I got annoyed easily. She made me a better person and I feel happy again. I think she would help other children to chill out and have zeal for life too’

Wow what can say, I've noticed a huge difference in --- confidence and positivity since you started coaching him just 4 weeks ago!

He is trying to be healthier by eating more fruit and complains less at mealtimes, even his brother has noticed an improvement!! He has asked to try Apricots, popcorn and raspberries and trying new foods before was unheard of due to anxiety.

He no longer talks down about himself and has a noticeable inner confidence.

He's happier with our bedtime routine with the introduction of the mind holiday and settles/falls asleep easier.

Mornings are, on most occasions, much easier and he often gets up and dressed without a battle.

He's loved the sessions with you and even on a day where he was feeling at his lowest, he came home feeling positive and happy.
He enjoys telling me about his sessions and his folder, and doing the activities you set him each week.
You have kept me well informed of the topics discussed and goals he has set himself.

It's been a brilliant experience for him and I am grateful that this coaching opportunity has arisen at a time in his life where he was beginning to struggle and he really needed somebody outside of the family to help him see he really is amazing and he's got this!

Thank you so much.

My Daughter was having terrible Anxiety and Low motivation, we got to the stage where she went from missing 1 day of school per week to possibly attending 1 day per week if we were lucky. As a family we were all suffering alongside her, trying to encourage her to get dressed and leave for school, some days she would get dressed and then get to the front door and be unable to leave the house.... other days just simply getting out of bed was a no go.

School made a referral for Chams to make an assessment, we were warned of the wait times and that it may be that they may not take her on, so out of desperation I decided to try and find someone to help my daughter.

Our whole family has benefited.

Carmy has been amazing, teaching my daughter techniques to manage her low mood, to feed her positivity, she is allowing my daughter to believe in herself, she comes away from sessions beaming and is full of chat and is so motivated.

My daughter has even been brave enough to get herself a volunteering position, helping out with all the animals at a local farm, definitely not something she would have felt confident to do a few months ago.

I'm not saying everything is perfect but my daughter has a lot more positive days than not, there are still days that she can not go to school, she is hopeful that she will be able to attend her exams that start next week, using her breathing, tapping and relaxation techniques.

Chams did offer to provide sessions but my daughter chose to stick with Carmy. She has loved your sessions

Thank you so much, a relieved Mum and family xx

Carmy has been a great help to my teenage daughter during a difficult period which brought

about low confidence and self esteem.

The sessions provided her with tools and coping mechanisms that not only aided her during

her transition from one school to another but also helped in boosting her confidence. I

would highly recommend these sessions.

I highly recommend Carmy's coaching, and I'm so pleased that she was recommended to me by a teaching professional. Talking to Carmy, I knew instantly that she was the right person to help my daughter.

My daughter really enjoys her sessions with Carmy, she feels that she's made a lot of progress and I'm thrilled to see how much things have improved for her! Carmy is excellent at providing detailed feedback on the sessions, the techniques that my daughter has learned and the goals that she has set herself. The mind holidays that Carmy creates for my daughter to listen to at home are brilliant at relaxing and settling her.

Regular booster sessions after the 4 weeks will ensure that she can make the most of the progress she's made and stays on that path of self-confidence and positivity.

Thank you Carmy!
