Just like an ice-berg, so many of us bury our true thoughts and feelings and then experience TITANIC moments where we lose our tempers, feel unmotivated and generally stressed out! This course helps children avoid the TITANIC moments by learning about their deeper levels!


A course to help all children reach for the stars and maximise their potential

This is a 5 session course is designed to help children:

  • Increase self-esteem
  • Understand and manage their feelings
  • Develop strategies to handle frustration and anger
  • Develop “I CAN”attitudes
  • Establish healthy boundaries and become assertive
  • Become happier with a more positive attitude
  • Develop resilience
  • Deal with bullies
  • Improve social skills and form appropriate friendships
  • Increase personal motivation
  • Form goals and develop the ability to “follow-through”


This is a 15 hour course.

A course will be scheduled periodically based on demand. Courses may be held during 5 afternoons of a school holiday or on 5 Saturday afternoons during term time.

Only trained facilitators are used to run the course and we establish a nurturing, warm environment to foster your child’s EQ (Emotional Intelligence).

You will be given suggestions to help you put strategies in place in the home and at the end of the course you will be given an appraisal of your child and suggestions for further improvements.

It is important that your child attends ALL 5 sessions to get the most out of the course.
INVESTMENT: $480  (This may be paid week by week after an initial deposit of $160 has been made).

The parents of children enrolled in EQ4KIDZ are required to participate in our EQ4FAMILIES training. The changes that you desire for your children cannot happen just by a 15 hour course. It also needs positive reinforcement by you during the course and in the future. The best way to achieve this is by your attendance at the EQ4FAMILIES workshop. This workshop is run over 2 evenings and gives you many practical strategies for nurturing harmony and emotional intelligence in the home.

More information about the EQ4FAMILIES workshop and the dates for the workshops are further down the page.

Please call us if you have any queries about the course. We also help children with all types of learning difficulties and we find participation in this course definitely improves academic outcomes.

All children will need a folder for notes and an old shirt for art activities.

You are charged for all sessions-even if you miss one. Your child will be invited to make up their session at the next EQ4KIDZ cycle.

Many children need more than 1 cycle of EQ4KIDZ- it all depends on the issues involved and their responses. The following cycles are offered at $380.

Individual EQ follow-up counselling is offered at $120 per hour.

On the first day when you bring your child please be 10 minutes early, bring your child into the teaching area and leave fairly quickly so we can establish rapport with your child and acquaint them with the environment.



A Parent Course to Boost Family EQ


  • Do you ever feel as if your kids come from a different planet?

(Nurturing EMOTIONAL LITERACY by Peter Sharp)

EI has been a popular and very useful construct in the workplace for a number of years, but, as Geoff Maslan reports, (Age, 4/8/08:3), there is accumulating evidence that EI is also related to important educational outcomes, including connectedness to school, effort and initiative in class, reduced aggressive band rule-breaking behaviour, lower levels of depression and anxiety, fewer social and attention problems, fewer unauthorised absences and suspensions, better coping strategies and improved academic achievement” (Australian Council For Educational Leaders, Directions in Education Vol 17, no 14, 15/8/2008


This day is designed to give you an overview of the research and scope of Emotional Intelligence, and to help you understand the concept of emotional competencies. You will be given opportunities to review your own emotional intelligence skills- as they relate to your personal life and also as they relate to your chosen career.

You will be given a reflection journal to record your impressions, ideas and realisations and taken through a gentle process that will help you to fully understand the significance of EQ in all our lives. This will be an interactive day with information, reflection, creative responses and discussion, all aimed at helping you to raise personal and work EQ.

The degree to which I can create relationships which facilitate the growth of others as separate persons is a measure of the growth I have achieved in myself.
