I started using the Emoji Chart because I was feeling worried and upset. I found using the chart calmed me down as I got to show how I was feeling by using the Emoji stickers, shapes and colours instead of trying to say it. The tool in the chart helps me to change how I feel.  I find that it’s something I can do with an adult as well as on my own, so they know how I’m feeling.It encourages me to show how I’m feeling. I really enjoy the chart as it helps me to explain my feelings to adults and I quite often use it when I get home from school.

We started using the Emoji Chart around a year ago with our seven-year-old son Sam and the results have been fantastic. Prior to using the Emoji Chart, small incidents could escalate quickly into a full meltdown.

The Emoji Chart has been a great tool to help Sam express how he feels and manage his emotions. It is also a useful tool to communicate with Sam how we feel as parents.  It calms tricky situations down and aids dialogue.

It really does help nip meltdowns in the bud!

If you want to encourage your children to be able to talk about and express how they are feeling. Then I can’t recommend this simple easy to use chart enough.

“Before I started to see Libby, I was stressed about my GCSE exams, having problems at home and had a lack of self-confidence. My mum asked me if I wanted to go and see Libby, I was a bit worried about what it was going to be like but went to see what it was like. Libby made the whole thing so relaxed I completely forgot about my worries and was able to open up. Over the six sessions I had, Libby has helped me so much from helping me use techniques in my exams which helped the stress to help me cope with things at home. I’m such a better person since I’ve been with Libby, I cannot thank her enough for what she did.”

Everything about dealing with your emotions and your child’s and practical tools to help. The values exercise was enlightening. Feeling empowered to change how you feel by changing your thoughts.

Thank you so much

Thought provoking course, getting me to think about my own emotions and how my children feel. Practical tools to help me deal with tantrums and difficult situations. Also great to hear that I need to spend time on myself and look after myself first without feeling guilty about it.

Jo Thornton

Values exercise and whole brain posture are really helpful and useful to take away and put into practice. Great evening, LOADS of useful info delivered in such a calm yet passionate way by Libby. All incredibly interesting and thought-provoking.

Helen McCann

The session was more than I asked for. It was full of useful information, and I learned that I need to talk more to my kids about emotions and give them space to open up.


It has been so helpful to discuss my problems, and I now feel optimistic about how to manage my emotions in reaction to my children.


WOW! So much useful stuff it’s hard to list it all. I’m leaving with clarity on where I’m going wrong and what I’m doing right. This workshop will change our family. I’m certain we will be happier as a result.

Libby has been awesome in her work for us here at Twinkl resources helping teachers with their wellbeing. She has provided numerous live stream sessions on meditation techniques, sleep and well-being and gives fantastic follow up support to our members. Her calm and professional manner is perfect for her presentations, instilling confidence in her audience.

We look forward to working with her again soon!

I contacted Libby when I was very low, desperately worried about my 14-year-old son, who had been very withdrawn and depressed. Some days he seemed so down, could hardly function properly, near to tears. He couldn’t tell me why or express exactly how he felt, just that he had a sad sinking feeling, which is a terrible thing for a parent to hear. I was desperate and when I heard about Libby I was relieved that I had someone to contact who might be able to help.

Libby was brilliant, she understood exactly how I felt and worked with me to improve how I was dealing with the situation, and also, of course, worked on my son’s problems. She showed me ways that I could cope more calmly with the situation, and tools and methods that I could use, which I will continue to use going forward. I was amazed that even after our first session there was a distinct improvement in my son’s mood. He seemed as if a load had been lifted, and although he still has a few down days, as all teenagers do, it is nothing like how he used to be.

He seems happier and calmer, as do I, and hopefully, this will continue to improve.

I am so pleased that I took the step to contact Libby. I would highly recommend her if you are in a similar situation, it has been very easy to work with her, she has been so caring and helpful.


Parent of a 14 year old.

I can’t praise Libby and her fantastic Emoji Chart enough. With two small children in the house, it has become an essential tool to help them and myself express our feelings and avoid tantrums and meltdowns. Lily is now able to tell me with words how she is feeling most of the time and we have found the tools very useful too.

It is simple to use and presented in a very engaging way for children.

Thank you so much, Libby.


I made an appointment with Libby when I came to realise I really wasn’t myself I’m a very dedicated, motivated, honest, hardworking family man and I found myself in a very very dark place. I was angry all the time but not just unapproachable and sharp, anger that brought about so much pain inside. I wasn’t sure who I was, or where it was coming from. My relationship with my wife had completely broken down, we were arguing constantly and had very little love, or respect for one another and my two beautiful daughters were annoying me every minute of every day. I would snap at them in a breath and just wanted to be away from all of them I reached out to Libby for help.

Not wanting counselling and feeling like a failure for seeking help I had put it off many times before, but after that first appointment Libby’s connection was unbelievable, her level of understanding put me at ease, and I knew instantly I was in the right hands It’s difficult when you’re motivated by a particular outcome to sit and be open without trying to force change. I’m very impatient and also very driven so to be calm and trust the process was something I had to work on. Letting go was a theme of the majority of my sessions and highlights the fact I hold on to things, and perhaps overthink things. This journey has 100% made me see things differently, I can see now that it made me defensive, negative and even judgmental. I had major trust issues from being repeatedly let down by others, and this was holding me back.

I will always find it difficult to forgive those that have hurt me or betrayed my trust, but Libby’s techniques are extraordinary. It’s not counselling in common sense you don’t bring things to the service, that you have to talk through like you’re being judged. That just wouldn’t work for me!! instead, you work together on clearing all the blocks and barriers you have put in place to protect yourself. I liken it to knocking down walls to reveal a clear path of intention. You feel open, light, and confident

My daily mantra is now The more I let go the higher I will rise I continue to work on myself daily, and thanks to the help of Libby my relationships with those that are dearest to me have never been better.

I feel Liberated.

Matt – A Dads testimonials 

My name is Su, I’m 50 years old and I am a teacher in Leeds.

For the last 20 odd years I have suffered with dizziness and headaches. Thirteen of the years I saw different consultants, who carried out different test on my symptoms, or gave me various tablets to take. Neither of them ever resolved the problem and as the dizziness and headaches became more frequent and lasted for longer bouts of time, I decided to take an alternative route to taking numerous medications.

Libby’s name was recommended to me from a member of my family.

I emailed Libby with a brief description of my problem, triggers and how it was having an impact on my work and home life.

  • Light headiness and dizziness which lasted for a few seconds to a minute at different times in the day.
  • Feeling sick, like travel sickness.
  • Pressure across my temple and the sides of my head.
  • Increasing strong heart beats or the feeling of an off-beat quivering.
  • Shaking of hands and legs.
  • This led to vomiting if I did not lie down.
    Some days these symptoms would go away after a good hour’s sleep. Other times the symptoms would linger during the next few days, leaving me feeling unbalanced with a headache.
    Impact on my life
    The after effect of the ‘dizziness was just allowing me to get through my job as best as I could. I’d go home and sleep it off and then repeat the next day feeling the same. If I went on the sick each time it happened I would have ended up losing my job.
    When at work I often had to lie down in staff meeting or would be driven home by others due to not being fit to teach or drive. I missed out on socialising with friends and family due to trying to sleep off headaches and feeling sick.

Libby has a calm, friendly mannerism which puts you at ease. I remember her first words to me were that ‘she wanted to get to the bottom of my cause and cure it, rather than just putting a plaster over the problem so to keep it under control.’

During the six sessions I met with Libby I have:-

  • recalled past events which must have been deeply buried in my unconscious,
  • felt the reduction of pressure in my head
  • stopped taking tablets
  • got rid of the symptoms and finally got my life back after years of continues sickness and dizziness

Thank you Libby, you kept to your word and found the cause to my condition. I am forever grateful.

Teacher Tesimonial 

The meditations are fabulous.

I listened to Libby’s  sleep meditation last night.

I was really tired so fell asleep quickly. Then I woke in the early hours and tossed and turned for a while so I listened to it again and it was FABULOUS!. I usually can’t get to sleep whatever I do but I found the visualisation of the butterflies in the net took all of the buzzing thoughts out of my head and I fell back to sleep soon after the meditation finished.

I am now sleeping much better so only have to use it occasionally now.

I love the stress one and the energy one too, I can actually feel my body tingling with energy afterwards.

Libby’s voice is SO FANTASTIC on it, SO CALMING.


Before the sessions, the children had a very low opinion of themselves which resulted in very low confidence in their ability. Over the 8 weeks the children were taught skills to help them develop their confidence and channel their frustration. They were taught skills that would help them to remain calm and beat stress, which for a class who were afraid to attempt their work for fear of getting it wrong was a fantastic skill to gain.

Most importantly, the children were taught how to view not only themselves, but others positively. The children were encourage to find aspects of themselves that they liked, they were taught that by spreading kindness and positivity it would make the classroom a much happier and safe place to be and they were taught how to structure their thinking so that anything is achievable. For me, this was one of the most important skills taught to the children. The children were given a child friendly explanation of how the brain works and that it only does what you tell it to. If you only ever tell; the brain negative things, then it will only ever do negative things. The children took really well to this part of the course and still today use the skills taught to help their classmates from falling back into old habits.

There has been a drastic change in the attitudes and self-esteem of the children in my class as a result of this 8 week course. I would, without a doubt, recommend this program to other schools to use to help build confidence and self image. Not only did the children take a lot from the sessions, but I feel that I learnt a lot about myself too.
