Feedback from course graduates

'I would not be the teacher I am today without doing this course.'

I did my EQ training with Deborah and it has really changed my life. I have learnt how to understand myself as well as other people and their emotions better and I have become more patient as well. It has made me realise how important it is to teach children emotional intelligence skills and has greatly impacted the way I teach. I would not be the teacher I am today without doing this course with Deborah and I am forever grateful ❤️

The training is fantastic! It's opened up so many opportunities for me. I've started my own EQ Tutoring business, I run the programme in a few schools and privately. Doing the training has also helped me to become a better mum to my 4 boys.

— Carly

I was looking for an opportunity to change my career and work around my kids when I was introduced to this programme. It was just what I was looking for! I have since partenered up with Carly and together we run EQ Essex. It's so fulfilling being able to help children with these essential Life Skills.

Since I started using the resources to teach children, I've had wonderful feedback from my students and their parents. They've seen the children using the materials as well as the coping strategies in their everyday lives. I've seen the children grow from being uncertain to finding their confidence. I also had two students who were being bullied and using what they learnt in the EQ lessons they were able to resolve the situation themselves without adult intervention and have since become friends with their bullies! Deborah has been an incredible support system through it all. She has allowed me to continue learning through it all and is so helpful with questions and queries I have. The lesson plans are a mix and match of different activities, the children look forward to all the fun things we learn, without it feeling heavy or scary.

The comments below in bold are from some of Devna's pupils with her comments added below.

N, aged 7

"Why aren't you teaching this to all the children in my school?" (she also recommended me to one of her friends, which was amazing). I really enjoy this class and look forward to it every week.

K, aged 6

"What are we learning today?" from being closed off around uncomfortable emotions, to learning to be curious and understanding it's ok to have emotions has been a journey.

D, aged 10

"I want to learn about the emotions and what they mean and how they feel." As an older child, giving these tools to help her grow and understand her emotions and the coping mechanisms have been amazing

A, aged 11

A started off as a very anxious child, now better able to handle anxiety, using the coping mechanisms in their every day life has made a major impact and helps with focus.

My wish is that every human being gets access to these incredible life-changing skills.

I have been involved in child care, tutoring and Early Childhood Development for 23 years. After completing this course, I now teach these lessons to the children in my pre-school. Seeing the difference it makes in their development and how they pass the teaching onto their parents, has been truly wonderful.

I work as a TEFL Tutor and after taking this course and becoming accredited, I now incorporate these lessons into my English lesson plans. I am passionate about, and firmly believe that now, more than ever, there is a real need to transform the lives of children. To empower them with the social and emotional skills and tools to develop mindfulness, self-esteem, confidence, responsibility, resilience, inner happiness, and to create a positive mindset and a “can do” attitude. This course covers all of that and more.

— Debi

To me, it's THE most important thing we can do for a child.

Without emotionally intelligent children we are seeing no empathy. Trauma, living conditions and poverty increases the emotional trauma kids are exposed to with no help to balance it out or solve it! When I learnt in this course that I was not responsible for other people's feelings, it sparked an intense desire to learn all that I had been missing. Applying the EQ principles has already changed my life beyond measure. I can only imagine how different my life would have been if I had been raised with Emotional Intelligence.

— Lizl

I took this course to incorporate the lessons into the drama lessons I teach to children. I now incorporate it into the TEFL lessons I teach as well. This course is very informative, it was easy to navigate and I loved that each topic was broken up into different sections. The videos are also really helpful. I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to learn about Emotional Intelligence and how to teach it. It is also a great course to help parents to raise emotionally aware children. Thank you for a fantastic course!

This has given me the opportunity to open and manage an EQ centre at a school.

The EQ training was the missing link in my life. It has changed the way I see life and the way I react to situations and has benefited me immensely in my family life. It has opened doors for me career wise and given me the opportunity to open and manage an EQ centre at a school, which I never thought would be possible, now I get to change little lives everyday. This course is life changing and I think the world needs more of us EQ Tutors out there.

Becoming an EQ Tutor for Kids, I was guided by valuable training material and the excellent assistance of Deborah McPhilemy to learn, grow and implement new ways of dealing with emotions, not only as a tutor, but in my personal life as well. Definite lesson plans and relevant stories (kids love them) assisted me in effectively introducing and instilling improved ways in handling of emotions and real life situations. Thank you Deborah, you are amazing!

When I was introduced to Emotional Intelligence and it changed my, and my children's lives, beyond recognition, I wanted to shout it from the rooftops. I was astounded that so few people had access to these incredible skills. I made it my mission to make developing Emotional Intelligence and building Mental Strength accessible and affordable to all. And now it is.........
