About the Path of Calm founders and creators of the program Chill Skills for Kids, Lisa Hemmings & Allan O’Keefe
Allan and Lisa have been running “Chill Skills for Kids” classes in rural Victoria for 4 years. A natural therapist, Lisa started teaching relaxation to adults ten years ago. Some of the parents from the classes asked Lisa to work with their children, she did and the results were wonderful, “The kids loved the stories and using their imagination to help them relax, they felt better and happier afterwards”. From those experiences and their training, Allan and Lisa consulted with experts and researched effective strategies to create the relaxation program, “Chill Skills for Kids”. The program draws on evidence-based practices including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) Mindfulness, Creative visualisations and systematic teaching of relaxation techniques.
“Using the valuable feedback from the kids and their parents we are always striving to ensure positive outcomes for the kids and their families”. “Helping kids connect to calm and confidence is our passion”.
Allan has Diplomas in Counselling & Community Services, He currently works as a counsellor with men and children and facilitates anger management groups for men.
Lisa has Diplomas in Counselling, Remedial Massage, Visual Art and Cert 1V in Aromatherapy and Business.
