What our customers say:

” STRENGTH HEROES 🌈🤩 Ava loved attending a two day @strengthheroes ‘Mistake Maker’ workshop 🥰 She learned what to do when making mistakes, why it’s a normal part of learning and life, and how to be more resilient and confident of her strengths 💪🏼 Thank you so much Fiona! 😘 What are your kids loving these school holidays? ” Amy Zempalis

“Hi Fiona

I have been meaning to contact you to let you know just how much (name withheld) enjoyed your course. I was a little uncertain as to whether she would enjoy it to be honest. She can be a determined little thing and she’s quite fixed on what she does well and what she doesn’t like, especially when it comes to art. When she came home on the first afternoon, she claimed it was the best day of her life. She ran through every part of the course, explaining in detail how the brain works, what to do if you make a mistake and proudly showed us her little clay bear. The second day, she was equally enthusiastic. She’s hung up her profile picture proudly and has the scrap book on her desk. This course was such an unexpected surprise for me and I have been sharing this story far and wide. Little girls often have a really issue being ‘wrong’. For me the pride in being a Mistake Maker is such an empowering concept and I wish I’d learnt it a little earlier in life.” Don’t be surprised if your course is inundated next holidays! “ Kelly Hasluck

“Thank you for making space for T. She thoroughly enjoyed it. I note that it’s all starting to make sense to her- she now recognises when the characters such as Miss Perfect or Angry armadillo are trying to take over the narrative.

Thank you for your good and important work.” Tatenda, Parent
