Children and Young People are under immense pressure to always be on their A game. It doesn’t need to be like this.

At every stage of a child or young person’s life, they’re having to deal with emotional and physical changes in an ever-increasing fast-paced world. Before we know it, they’re adults, stressed to the max, lost in a sea of high emotions, worry, upset, and confusion. One in six children has a mental health condition and can wait 18 months for clinical help, but sometimes, having a safe space to learn relaxation techniques and just talk with a skilled mentor can be a great first step to forging their norm.

And by chance, you clicked on my website!

I’m a qualified Youth Worker, Relax Kids coach, and have completed training in life coaching. I’ve been working with children and young people for 18 years. I know the struggles they’re going through, and I’m ready to help. My clients range from those wanting to learn basic relaxation techniques in order to be able to switch off at the end of the day through to those wanting a bit more support to resolve a specific issue affecting their wellbeing. I’ve also worked with adults. Bit of an all rounder. Let me help you boost your self-esteem and confidence, explore your abilities, and help you relax. Whether 1:1 or in group settings, I centre you as an individual and create a safe, calm, and supportive environment.

It’s been great working with you. Thank you for all your support. You’ve been a lovely person to communicate with during all this. I hope our paths cross again one day.

‘Thank you so much Roy for running the pancake session (face to face session during Covid). He needed pushing to go but came back much happier and said it was great fun, and wow, you got him to eat something. He’s not eaten since Saturday (two days) so that’s a big relief. You are helping restore his confidence.’

Name withheld (in relation to youth work)

Roy has supported [my son] throughout the uncertain times of COVID and the lockdowns this year, which has been really helpful for us. I asked [my son] what he thinks of Roy and the Relax Kids 1:1s and he said, “Roy is kind and has helped me feel less anxious. The 1:1s are fun and I love Roy’s relaxing stories”. I would recommend Roy as a Relax Kids coach. Roy is very approachable, knowledgeable and dedicated to his work as a coach.
