Parents are stressed about how to help their children with anxiety and depression.
Discover three evidence-based emotional intelligence skills and change the lives of your students and staff.
We all have negative thoughts.
Sometimes positive thinking, gratitude and mindfulness don't work.
Science shows us why we need to get comfortable with the uncomfortable.
But we're afraid to go there!
My BodyMIND will show you, your students and staff how to accept and let go of negative thoughts and feelings with compassionate awareness, curiosity and play.
While most wellbeing programs focus on a cognitive approach, My BodyMIND draws upon the latest neuroscience on trauma and the body and teaches a life-saving skill, to feel safe with negative thoughts and feelings.
With intense feelings of anxiety, sadness and loneliness, and thoughts like 'I'm dumb', 'I'm not good enough' and 'I don't belong,' My BodyMIND provides a safe pathway with highly practical developmental-specific strategies for students, staff and families to accept and release their discomfort using the MEET. GREET. TREAT. model.
My BodyMIND supports the Victorian Curriculum's Personal and Social Capabilities, and is derived from evidence-based practice developing emotional safety through nervous system regulation and self-inquiry.
Learning three vital emotional intelligence skills reduces anxiety, depression and disengagement and increases connection, wellbeing and engagement.
The skills you learn alleviate pain sensitivities, particularly in neurodiverse students and they strengthen confidence and resilience to meet everyday triggers and challenges. My BodyMIND fosters emotional awareness for long-lasting mental health, anxiety and depression prevention and a love for learning.
“Learning to identify and welcome a difficult emotion within a specific part of my body as a helpful messenger rather than an enemy to be avoided was very useful for me and will be when having wellbeing chats with students.” - Carl Rusbridge, BLFO
This taught me to allow the feelings to arise and process. I wish I had have known this when I was going into my teens.
After decades of countless appointments with psychologists which only seemed to reinforce my belief that there was something wrong with me, I have found these tools more effective and helpful than any other methods.
The monster in my mind has gone.
The results have been truly life changing, I use the tools daily. It is easy and accessible and my mental health and overall wellbeing continually improves because of it.
These strategies have transformed my life. Bronte has taught me how to be with my feelings and love all parts of myself - especially the yuck bits.
The feeling's gone.
It has given me the skills and courage to welcome in all of my feelings - even the painful and scary ones. This has and will continue to change my life for the better.
I am calmer about challenging situations knowing these tools.
I feel calmer.
I cope with moments of sadness better. I don't suppress anymore.
I am calmer. My mind isn't crazy all the time.
I feel so strong and empowered.
I feel better.
I no longer feel as though there's something wrong with me.
This is the first thing I've found that I would consider a cure for anxiety.
Using the tools is such an easy thing to do when difficult moments arise. It can diffuse situations quickly.
This was really informative and gave me a new perspective. I like the emphasis on accepting all emotions and not shutting them down.

Thanks Bronte."
