The challenge for school staff to provide tools and learning to enhance pupil’s emotional health and well-being can be met by Calm Kids introducing EFT, NLP, ENLP and Sound into your school. Emotional Freedom Techniques, ENLP and Sound fit the SEAL & PSHCE (Personal, Social, Health, Citizenship and Emotional) well-being needs of pupils within the education and private sector. If we resolve childhood issues in the early stages they don’t linger which may cause ill-health later on in life. As our children are the future of our world don’t they deserve to be revered and cared for to the best of our ability?
Working with Calm Kids at School
Calm Kids can help your school actively enhance the well being of your children through a choice of one off or regular in school and after school workshops with teachers/pupils and/or parents. EFT, ENLP & Sound workshops have become very popular especially at KS1 and KS2 not just in the UK but also around the world. Calm Kids workshops are tailored to train staff in ways to accelerate childrens learning with ‘Learn with Ease’ workshops which uses a variety of techniques & strategies to heighten children’s awareness, creating energised, alert, calm and confident states, centre children in the present to reduce fidgeting & daydreaming, improve recall for tests & exams including spellings. Staff are an important asset to any school and so Calm Kids will show them ways to aid their emotional well-being so they can manage their emotions and deliver even better lessons for their pupils, feeling greater job satisfaction. This in turn will reduce staff illness and turnover.
Calm Kids takes referral from Headteachers/Year Heads/SENCO/SEAL & PSHE Co-ordinators for one-to-one sessions with individuals who would benefit from closer attention. Sessions can be held on school premises for schools workshops and pupil sessions and at my practice for individual sessions for adults. Calm Kids, although based in Luton, Bedfordshire, works within the three counties region of Herts, Beds and Bucks offering support for schools, colleges, youth organisations, charities, parent groups, families, children’s hospitals & hospices plus individuals (including staff) by arrangement.

Why EFT, NLP, Energetic NLP & Sound are great for Children
Every Child does Matter because they are the future carers of our world and so we need to enlighten them in ways to be the best they can and celebrate their uniqueness. I feel that these techniques should be incorporated into the education system as part of teacher training which will ensure that all children have coping strategies to help them control their emotions and thoughts.
EFT can be used for just about any emotional problem you can think of for both adults and children. EFT is a simple empowering tool by using a gentle finger tapping on the meridians of the face and chest to help children with emotional issues and it has been used with children for everything from anger, trauma, bedwetting, fears and phobias, behavioural problems, nail biting, nightmares, results of bullying, lack of confidence, learning enhancement and pain management (many of these issues are the same as those of adults). EFT is fun and easy to learn and can be used anywhere.
NLP for children to discover children’s preferred learning styles, celebrates their ‘sunbeams’ and reframes their ‘raindrops’ , allows children to show how they do things so they can model the successful strategies. The use of brain gym to ensure both right and left brain are engaged plus to calm and energise to aid concentration. Access appropriate states to help learn easily such as confidence, calm, motivation and success. Create learning goals and put these into their future (Time Line Therapy).
Energetic NLP is a series of visualisation processes for those who prefer to form pictures in their mind instead of tapping. ENLP is also simple and empowering and can be used anywhere – it help with issues of releasing uncomfortable feelings, fears and limiting beliefs and energises so that children become calm, in control and more confident.
FUTURE LIFE PROGRESSION is a wonderful technique where children get into a relaxed state and journey either to the future in this lifetime or another possible future lifetime and bring back knowledge and skills which enables them to improve their esteem knowing that all is well.
Sound is a perfect way to attain relaxation, nothing to do — no tapping or visualisation. Sound releases stress and worries on a cellular level and is therefore excellent for the children who may not want to consciously work on their issues. Children learn vocal toning to release blocks in their body’s energy centres and mantras to create different states.

0 – 5 Early years
Children learn a Tapping Tune which is a fun introduction to the tapping points and some of the ideas behind EFT which helps them manage their feelings. The song introduces children and young people of all ages to the idea of tapping on energy points to help with a variety of issues. As a group they learn the song, so whilst having fun singing (which is an easy way for them to learn), they are integrating the tapping points which encourages them to use EFT more easily & regularly. ENLP is visualisations which they can also use to manage their emotions if they are more of a visual child than auditory. Both methods are simple and easy to learn. Pat & Pattie Bear are usually welcome visitors in the early years setting & in homes. They are especially helpful for the children who don’t wish to express their feelings out loud but find it acceptable if Pat or Pattie do it for them. Children often decide to ‘decorate’ their bears with magic buttons (or stickers) placed on the tapping points. Children love the empowering feeling of being able to independently help themselves feel differently about their troubles and concerns. They also love teaching it to others (family and friends) so they can also benefit. When their parent/carers use it with them on a regular basis it creates a wonderful bonding especially at bed time.
5 – 11 years KS1 & KS 2
Children are taught the tools of EFT & ENLP in the classroom and then we use them together according to topic or theme of the curriculum requirement for the session. Often other issues arise and we also work on these time permitting.
12-18 High school and College
Adolescents are using EFT & ENLP techniques with great and lasting results on issues relating to the past, present and their concerns of the future. EFT & ENLP tools are shared in a group or individual setting either at school/college or my practice in Luton leaving them feeling empowered knowing that they can manage their ‘stuff’ on their own. The really ‘big’ stuff needs a facilitator to help them which is why I also conduct one to one sessions. Sound sessions are great for them to just relax and let go…
