Monday 4th March: Online for Camperdown, Portland, and Hamilton

Thursday 7th March: Warrnambool in person


Andy's workshops contain simple, practical, down-to-earth ways for parents and teachers to connect with their children. In that process of connection, their children can develop skills that are going to be useful in their lives that will complement academic skills. These skills will help them to navigate the challenges of life as they mature, and they will also be less likely to develop problems related to stress, anxiety, or depression.

Workshops Include:

  • Anxiety & Resilience
  • Connecting through Stories
  • Independence
  • Resilience
  • Gratitude
  • Fun
  • Device Control
  • Problem Solving
  • Creativity
  • Feedback
  • Teamwork and Collaboration
  • Self-Confidence.


Organising a Workshop?

Please contact me if you would like to discuss the possibility of running a workshop for your school, workplace, or community group.

Andy's Connecting with your Kids workshops are brilliantly informative. They are presented in such a relaxing and comfortable way that it creates an environment where parents can discuss topics, ask questions and add input and ideas freely. They are fun, helpful and always a brilliant reminder of what’s important in life.
