The Confident Kids and Teens program was developed in 2008 by Brisbane Psychologist Larne Wellington in response from parents seeking practical tools to boost their child’s confidence and resilience. Larne recognised the need to provide a positive strength-based program where each child could achieve their personal best by learning emotional and social skills in a fun, interactive format. Larne is a registered Psychologist and a Member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS) with comprehensive experience working with children and families. She has many years of management experience in organisational settings, has delivered training to both large and small groups and facilitated parenting workshops. Larne has been practicing mindfulness meditation herself for over 10 years. Larne is passionate about encouraging kids and teens to value and believe in themselves and to recognise the strengths they already have.
