This Is ME (This is how it should be) is a workshop and downloadable interactive/printed journal aimed at 11 -15 year olds.

This Is ME takes a step by step journey through and out of the pandemic. The journal’s 16 beautifully laid out sections helps young people to discuss covid19, lockdown restrictions and its impact more easily. Moving through the sections, the journal’s questions encourage thoughts and discussions about the positive and negative aspects of the pandemic. This Is ME concludes with  a section about how they would like to help others, and what their hopes and aspirations are for the future.

This Is ME  Workshop

There are many young people struggling emotionally from the effects of the COVID19 pandemic. This is where the journal and workshop can help. Already part of some schools’ PHSE curriculum, This Is ME is guiding 11 year to 15 year old students out of the pandemic. Older students do not miss out either. The highly acclaimed  Power of YOU workshop has now been adapted for young women aged 16-20 years.


“Sharon delivered two full days of sessions sharing her interactive journals with small groups of students from Years 7 -13.  Despite the necessity to deliver the sessions remotely, Sharon’s warm and engaging manner encouraged the students to open up and share their thoughts and feelings.  Many of the students are going to struggle with the return to school and so these sessions were timed perfectly to help support them with the transition.”
