What is Emotional Intelligence?
Emotional Intelligence is the ability to understand, manage and use emotions to make good decisions.
When you help your child understand all their emotions and give them the tools to handle overwhelming feelings such as anger, frustration, or confusion, you help develop his/her emotional intelligence (EI) or Emotional quotient (EQ).
EQ includes the ability to understand your boundaries and others. It’s based on recognising and accepting strengths and weaknesses in self and others.It develops assertiveness ‐ being able to say “no” kindly and clearly. It encourages flexible thinking ‐ think outside of the box, not getting stuck.
It develops self motivation, initiative,participation/engagement, responsibility and self esteem.

What is Emotional Adventuring?
Emotional Adventuring happens in a group, class or workshop situation where children are supported to take a journey to develop an understanding and healthy relationship with their emotions. They are encouraged to connect with and explore their feelings using a variety of tools which include body movement, creative play and mindful inquiry.
Developing this emotional awareness is the foundation of a healthy Emotional Quotient (EQ).
EQ is essential in helping children become confident, responsible, and happier adults who navigate their lives and interpersonal relationships skillfully .
Each session is about exploring your emotions, your heart-centre, in a way that is adventurous as it takes courage, commitment and a willingness to step beyond your comfort zone. The name took it’s inspiration from adventure sport which requires commitment, can be frightening but ultimately rewards you with a sense of triumph for having dug deep and persevered towards a deeper appreciation of life and living.
Emotional adventures nurture a greater awareness of emotions and help you experience them as a compass you carry within. When you dig deep to find your truth at any particular time, you discover a greater capacity to embrace life wholeheartedly.
Building understanding of an emotion in our body gives us greater self‐awareness. With greater self-awareness and an understanding of the value emotions deliver to us, we are empowered with greater choice of how to handle the emotion in ourselves and how best to respond to others’.

- Relationships are directly influenced by how we feel about ourselves and others at any time
- Our approach to managing our emotions affects how well we function in the world
