I’ve been reading a lot about pandemic fatigue this past week. Recognising the signs of it in my own world, this beautiful illustration by @sketchymuma lifted my spirits 🆙 🤍. Thank you to @thepsychologymum whose brilliant writing helps to explain what so many of us are experiencing right now, “There’s growing evidence that the pandemic may be causing increased fatigue…people have started to use the term pandemic fatigue to describe the exhaustion or mental exhaustion you m
I wanted to stop and share a little hello. If you’re new to The Worry Wizard, welcome🤗. We’re so glad to have you here. If you’ve been here a while, thank you so much for continuing to adventure with us. We’re so grateful to everyone in The Worry Wizard Community. You make it a lovely place to be 💙🌎💫.

This description of home leapt off the page whilst I was reading a magazine 📖 earlier in the summer 🌞. I wonder what you think of it 💭? It made me feel a confusing mixture of warmth ☀️ and sadness 😔. The warmth ☀️ - for me, it beautifully describes what home can be. The sadness 😔 - I’m aware many children don’t live these words 💙. This sadness often leaves me feeling powerless and unsure of what I can do. But I hold tight to the inspiring and hope filled words of @kier
So, what actually happens when The Worry Wizard and Bigfoot Arts Education - HQ decide to help children’s Wellbeing shine? Bigfoot, with the help of the brilliant pupils and staff at Oakfield Primary Academy, have made this video to show you. I am so excited to share it. Thank you so much ✨.
We have already helped over 4,000 children make the first step to move from Worries to Wellbeing. Could your school be next? Call us in 0800 644 6034 to find out more!
It’s been a difficult week for Worries (🥳) as The Worry Wizard and Bigfoot Arts Education have been helping lots of children move from Worries to Wellbeing. My special pen is busy writing Wellbeing Greeting cards to celebrate all the Wellbeing Qualities we’ve seen. It feels particularly special to send this Courage card to the all brilliant pupils at Shoreditch Primary School. In Children’s Mental Health Week, when children are being encouraged to ‘Find Their Brave’, Chris
I’ve been asked to create a video introducing The Worry Wizard at a children’s conference on Wellbeing. ‘How does The Worry Wizard nurture emotional connection between children, young people and adults, enabling the move from Worries to Wellbeing?’ It’s 6 minutes long!! ⏰. I suggest you pop the kettle on ☕️ 🍪 ✨
(A very big thank you to Sykes Holiday Cottages for ALL their support with The Worry Wizard. And thank you so much to Cheshire Connect for connecting us; togethe
My work with children and young people frequently reminds me that whilst being a good friend is an essential life skill, it is not something we are born knowing. I know I am still learning. It is imperative we support children and young people to #BeKind to others but it is equally imperative we are kind to children and young people in the moments when they stumble in their relationships. When we choose to stand right by their side as they recover from their stumble, (gentl
I’m very much a ‘let’s sit and talk, two chairs, me and you, type of person’. I’ve never been a ‘stand up in front of a room full of people and talk at them’ type of person. But recently I’ve realised I’m not standing there on my own. I’m standing there surrounded by all the amazing children (and adults) I’ve met along the way, tasked with trying to share some of the amazing things they’ve taught me. So whilst I’ll always be more comfortable doing the first, I know I need to
