Anti-Bullying Week in England is from the 16th – 20th November 2015. It is coordinated by the Anti-Bullying Alliance. The theme this year is ‘Make a Noise about bullying’.
I am an award-winning poet, Sable Litmag Poet-in-Residence 2014-15 and a qualified holistic Coach.
For over twenty years, I have been committed to raising the self esteem and confidence of girls and young women through coaching , literacy, creativity and digital media.
I currently use my poetry film ‘Lips‘ in powerful coaching sessions and workshops to help combat the epidemic that is bullying in our society. We also explore ideas of identity.

Creative Education Consultant, Tutor and Holistic Coach for Sensitive, EBD (Emotional & Behavioural Difficulties) Pupils
Is your child emotionally sensitive and slightly overwhelmed by the school learning environment?
Does your child require an educator or education environment which holistically supports their emotional sensitivity?
Is your child labelled ‘shy’, ‘introverted’, ‘misunderstood’ or even ‘disruptive’?
Does your child become over stimulated and agitated by busy surroundings, preferring a calmer, relaxing, more sedate learning environment, supportive of their emotional needs?
Does your child have any unrealised creative gifts or talents and need a empathic educator to help them realise their potential?

As individuals, we are ALL created uniquely beautiful. Some of us have gentle dispositions and are therefore misunderstood. Some of us are extremely sensitively wired and are therefore misunderstood. Some of us will NEVER fit into the mould of acceptable looks, or acceptable past times. It’s about having patience with and being accepting of others, instead of demonising them…because they are not like you!
“Speaking out against harsh, critical words may be a huge challenge.”
Some of us have not developed the communication tools to express our thoughts or feelings, so may have difficulty in responding to harsh words or criticism, or are unable to articulate the inner pain connected to these harsh words. Speaking out against harsh, critical words may be a huge challenge.
Some of us may feel unsupported, because we are unable to find the right person to express our innermost thoughts and feelings to, without the fear of our expressed feelings being thrown back in our faces.
There is a saying “hurt people hurt people”. Research has shown that those who are unhappy within, or are in pain themselves, may sometimes lash out or bully others, therefore hurting their intended target too.
I performed poetry at a recent ‘Loose Muse’ women’s writing event and a courageous young lady shared her own, deeply personal experiences of being bullied and subsequently wanting to take her own life. She mentioned also that in the area of south London where she resides, suicides among teenagers, in particular GCSE and A Level students were at a ridiculously high number. This was not just due to the pressures of life, but also about how some are made to feel by harsh comments and treatments by others.
I recently read a Facebook post, which outlined the final Tweet posted by a young man, tormented over the years about his sexuality. He was commonly referred to as “a loser, freak and fag” and used this to describe himself in his last Twitter message. He felt he had done the world an injustice and therefore took his own life.
Without the right support and understanding from others, when will people cease to remove their inner pain, torment and feelings of being misunderstood by taking their own lives?
Some of us will never be accepted, because we are moulded and act differently.
How can those of us who are emotionally stronger step in to help prevent bullying and help support and encourage those who are being bullied or misunderstood?
In my coaching, workshops, talks, as well as through my writing, I have focussed on this, as I have also been bullied and victimised by others. I therefore choose to use my art and holistic and well-being tools to help stand up to this. Writing and coaching can be useful ways to express pain, as well as feel accepted and valued within.

Special Limited Offer for NEW CLIENTS: ‘Pay-What-You-Can Wednesdays’ For Holistic Empowerment For You, Wellness Support Mentoring, Personal IT Training and School Workshops. From YouAreYOU Holistic Coaching, Empowerment & Training Services. YouAreYOU.co
Great news from YouAreYOU.co founder Patricia Foster Mckenley!
I have a lot to celebrate in my life at the moment. Because I am feeling in such a fantastic mood, I would love to tell you about our Special, LIMITED, Offer at YouAreYOU.co. If you are based in the UK, I am offering New Clients a Pay-What-You-Can service on Wednesdays, for a limited time only. Outside of the UK, this offer is available for coaching sessions, by Zoom, FaceTime, Skype or telephone.
Now, why would I want to do this?
I pray every day and received guidance to make this decision. I believe that my services add great value for money.
For over twenty years, I have successfully transformed the lives of hundreds of clients, including generations of young people, who have gone on to excel in their chosen fields and become successful leaders.
I posses a calm, patient, intuitive coaching and teaching style, which has cultivated interactive and engaging ways for young people and women to be creative, to self express, build confidence and raise self esteem.
I am also Counselling Skills Level 2 certified, so can go deeper and combine our sessions with counselling support.
My dynamic, empathic and supportive approach to wellness, training, coaching, educating and improving lives, has empowered learners of all ages and seekers of an enhanced way of living life.
I also am aware that many of us, particularly if you are transitioning from one phase of your life to another, will not have the cash flow they desire. With this in mind, I wanted to provide the community and professional level expertise that I have and make it accessible to everyone.
For new clients, we will offer a FREE, 30 minute complimentary session, via Zoom, FaceTime, Skype or telephone, to assess your needs, before you book your ‘Pay-What-You-Can Wednesdays’ sessions. How does this sound?
