The Consultation Process
Thanks for coming to find out the background story to our Child Led Story Book Company, where every story is written &/or edited with children, to offer them a more mindful way of thinking about the things that concern them the most.

Let's have a look at some statistics to find out why it is important that we are better prepared to support our children in managing their emotional well being. National Research shows that 1 in 10 primary school children are now showing signs of anxiety and are known to Mental Heath Services in Primary Schools, plus many more are expressing feelings of general concern, stress and unhappiness. When I read these worrying statistics, it almost broke my heart. It's not how we think of Primary School children, is it? I went to speak with children & teachers, to see what concerns them the most and how we might set up a different kind of Story Book Company, that enabled them to become part of their own solution.
