EPIC Youth

Nurturing creative minds and nourishing young souls.

Hi, I’m Sunny Sky and love working with children. I’ve gained a wealth of experience working with children over the years starting as a children’s entertainer and kids TV presenter. Evolving over my adult years, diving deeper into child psychology, training as a Mindfulness PBS Coach, (aligned with Mental Health Foundation), Compassionate Communications Coach, Youth Counsellor, Creative Arts & Performance Teacher, Brain Gym Facilitator, Rainbow Yoga Teacher, and Creative Art Therapist(IAT).

Providing unique support for youth! 

Offering emotional support for children going through life changes, sensitive kids, anxiety, trauma, social behavioural and neurodiversity (awesomism).

Previous Youth Work:

Sunny’s work ranges from teaching Brain Gym with toddlers, facilitating wellbeing programmes in school, mindful movement for primary schools, creative art classes for group therapy, empowerment workshops for new entrants, confident workshops for tweens , tailor-made sensory creative classes for Neuro Diverse, team building for high schoolers, and mentoring teens.

Epic Kids and Youth Mentoring

The key principals of my approach are based on a combination of holistic and science-based practices:

  • Supporting emotional expression and release through compassionate conversational style coaching and Active listening.
  • Research findings from attachment science, Neuro-linguistics, and Child Psychology
  • Providing a safe environment for children to feel and express emotions
  • Attunement, intuitively tuning into the child’s world, reading the child’s non-verbal communication (body language and energy) to help resolve any out of balance behaviour
  • Theta healing and Kinesiology (muscle testing) helps restore limiting belief patterns
  • Integrative Art Therapy (IAT) is an effective, non-invasive creative therapy using crafts and Colourful Mindful ArtPlay to help youth express deep feelings
  • Vibrational Healing integrating colour and sound for relaxation using crystal bowls, Tao Toshi chimes, and meditation music assists with conscious awareness, and empowerment
  • Mindful Movement – Yoga, dance flow and SSR somatic stress release techniques help embody conscious shifts
  • Providing support, strategies and self-healing for parents – click here for more details
  • Intergrating natural therapies – see Epic Health

Offering a safe, inspiring, nurturing space to feel more connected!
