Hi I am Kathryn and I am a family coach. When I talked to Tammi and heard her vision for the CUBE I was filled with excitement around the potential the project could have. It is so encouraging to see many people and groups come together to support this work. As someone who has been working in and around the Vale of Glamorgan for a few years now, I can see the demand and know of the positive impact this will have on those who make use of the facilities and what is on offer.
I work with families and children to support their emotional wellbeing. My focus is on nurturing the relationships and helping improve communication between children/young people and their primary care giver, with the confidence to talk about what they maybe struggling with.
I support families, parents, carers, and adults working with children and young people by equipping them with the tools and skills necessary to have open, honest and empathic conversations, to support mental health. What I provide for the people I work with is the confidence in themselves and how to approach situations, skills to support any challenges they face and the knowledge to make empowering, conscientious decisions and equipping them with tools and skills that best support them.
The centre being set up is inspiring and I hope to be able to offer a bereavement course for children and young people. I will also be looking to support children and young people with courses around emotional awareness, anxiety and mental health, as well as supporting parents and care givers to understand what is happening and meet their emotional needs.
As well as being a coach trained in NLP, TLT and Hypnosis, I am also trained in trauma and mental health, wellbeing programmes such as children’s yoga, and am a trained holistic therapist and I have worked with children all my life. I am a mum to 2 boys and a wife. I volunteer for crisis helpline, and I run parent support groups.
I have lived in the Vale of Glamorgan all my life. I love the community, the spirit and support people provide every day in our area and to be part of this innovative project is magical.
