Stress, frustration and conflict.
We don’t want them but they keep turning up
in important places!
At home, at school and at work, we know how it feels. Emotions get messy and relationships get strained. Our wellbeing and mental health suffer.
Emotions are a complicated part of life, but they don’t have to be this damaging.
Whether it’s about stress at work, fighting at home, or teaching children at school, this website can help you make sense of those tricky situations and develop practical ways to manage stress, frustration and conflict.
Arrange a workshop, buy a book, or ask Dr Heyworth to custom design an approach to suit your unique situation.
Dr Brenda Heyworth understands the messiness of emotions and has a knack for explaining them in ways that are interesting and make practical sense.
She’s a Psychiatrist and an Educator, with thirty years’ medical experience and Harvard qualifications in Learning Design.
She has delivered more than one hundred workshops, tutorials and keynote presentations on topics relating to mental health, wellbeing, emotions and behaviour. She is also the author of the popular parenting book, ‘It’s a Jungle – A Parents’ Guide to Emotions and Behaviour’.
Different problems emerge from different settings, so Dr Heyworth’s work has focussed into 3 distinct streams; related to home, school and the workplace. For resources that relate to your particular circumstances, please select from the settings below.
For parents, grandparents, foster care and kinship care.
For teachers, teacher aids, wellbeing officers, principals, guidance officers, anyone working with children in school,
For employees and managers across any industry.
