Business Name Kalm Kids
What problems does your business solve? Kalm Kids supports children, aged 5-13 years, with their social and emotional skills, empowering them with tools to enhance their confidence and resilience. Some children become anxious or overwhelmed, and they may… Become easily angry or frustrated, toss and turn at night, strive for perfection, be scared to try new things. Over the 9 weeks of live lessons children learn a vast number of strategies such as: 🤩Ability to recognise, name and manage their thoughts, feelings and emotions 🤩How to be in charge of their own actions and responses 🤩How to interact with others socially building their confidence and resilience 🤩Deep breathing techniques, journal writing and gratitude
What’s something that you wish you had known before getting into business? How to continually grow my business.

Please provide your short business bio to be featured in our Membership Directory Based in Brisbane, Kalm Kids is a children’s Wellbeing Program that teaches children strategies so that they can feel calm, confident and resilient. There is increasing emphasis in the media on the rising levels of stress, anxiety, attention deficit, eating disorders and behavioural issues that are affecting children today. Providing a Wellbeing Program to reduce childhood anxiety is now more important than ever. Created by Primary School Teacher Leanne Jones and her partner Brett, a qualified counsellor, KalmKids draws upon a variety of contemporary early childhood development theories to help children trust their instincts, improve their emotional expression and build self-esteem. Students are given the opportunity to express and share their feelings with the group as part of their nine-week KalmKids program. To overcome their issues with childhood anxiety, they work on breathing, visualisation and gratitude, while exploring the concepts of self-love, compassion, perspective and inner strength. Sessions are held in the evening and are suitable for children from age 5 to 18.
