The Skill Tree Company aims to give kids the life skills to make them grounded, rounded,
resilient young people who can reach their full potential. Our key themes are to
raise self-esteem, encourage positivity, assertiveness and resilience. We will also
teach how to combat bullying and learn to focus and relax, even during high stress
times such as exam preparation.
Our society vaccinates kids against potential physical diseases but does not protect
them from stress and the pressures that fast paced 21 century living can bring.
Often the techniques that can help children cope are only offered when a child is
already in difficulty, e.g., being bullied or diagnosed with an emerging mental health
Our aim is to teach these valuable life skills, ideas and techniques early, to protect
our children and help them grow into the young people they are meant to be.
Parents ourselves, we have run the gauntlet of discovering our children are being
bullied, or having to watch them struggle with the multitude of pressures we could
not have conceived of in our own childhoods. Many of the approaches we have developed
were conceived with highly sensitive young people in mind, then found to be more
universally helpful and effective.
We are both passionate about teaching kids the skills to relax, build resilience
and enjoy life to the full. Our workshops offer an opportunity to build their confidence,
whilst having some fun. With our combined skill sets covering teaching, course design,
counselling and parenting skills, we have researched widely the ways in which kids
can be helped to reach their full potential and find solutions to the many difficulties
they face in everyday life at school, with their peers and within their families.
We want to share this knowledge, offering skills for life, for everyone.
