Angela Verburg
Angela Verburg, Qualified Instructor

As a mum of three, Angela is passionate about raising physically and mentally healthy children. She has a Bachelor of Health Science, with her career in health promotion mostly focusing on improving nutrition and physical activity levels in the community. She believes that providing children with emotional literacy skills will provide a great platform for children to grown into happy, healthy adults.

The journey of motherhood has been a time of reflection and where I have seen many of my own emotions mirrored back through my children. As parents we need many tools in our toolbox and a community to support us. I have personally attended the workshops with my daughter as I could see she was struggling with life’s big emotions. I loved that we both came away with new skills and a closer connection.

I am so excited to have the opportunity to empower other children and parents through sharing the children workshops.
