Make a Splash

'Make a Splash' is an interactive hands-on art journal with a focus to support young people.

This art journal supports our tamariki to find their standing place. To find their voice and say - 'Here I am and I'm okay.'

Topics include: Relationships, Bullying, The Power of Apology, Changing those Non Helpful Inner Vows, Self-harm,
Stigma, At-Risk Friends, Daring to Dream, and much more.

The first print run of Make a Splash sold out in just two months. The second print run is now available here in my shop.

The art journal is also in eBook format. 

10% of all sales goes to Gumboot Friday & I AM HOPE 
Conflict management 101

Struggling to keep those difficult conversations with your young person on point?

Want a map to navigate, set up, and manage conflict with your young person?

Difficult conversations could be anything from helping around the house to managing screen time. Relationships, mental health, self-care, and all the other talks we have in family life. 

I have created this FREE minicourse packed full of tips and encouragement you need to prepare, get started, and keep the kōrero on track! 

I am currently creating an online course to further support those courageous conversations you want to have with your teens.
