Emotional Intelligence

Did you know that your Emotional Intelligence or EQ is a bigger determining factor of resilience and success in life than your IQ?

Emotional Intelligence has been identified as one of the top skills for the 21st Century by the World Economic Forum.

What is emotional intelligence anyway? Basically, it’s the ability to notice your emotions, know what you’re feeling, be able to feel what you’re feeling so you can navigate through the experience. EQ leads to greater self-integration, which allows more empathy for others’ emotions, deepening connection and social interactions.

Emotional Health

You’d think it was a no brainer to feel your feelings, right? But there’s a big difference between knowing what you’re feeling and being able to experience the emotions.

Emotional health is not only about big issues like depression or anxiety. It includes the little worries, frustrations, doubts, sadness or guilt that you experience in your daily life.

Most of us have never been taught, or never learned, how to navigate the intensity of ‘bad’ feelings. It’s difficult, and can be literally painful; these uncomfortable emotions are not only in our mind and in our thoughts but also held in our physical bodies. (For example, tightness in your neck and shoulders when you’re worried, tension in your stomach when you’re nervous, or heaviness in your heart when you’re sad).

In this workshop I share how acknowledging and mobilising emotions regulates interactions, physical health, and responses to daily stress. Learn to use your emotions as your guideposts rather than something to manage or control. Become responsive vs. reactive; empowered in life, in health and in your relationships.

Emotional Freedom Techniques

I will introduce EFT (also known as tapping), a simple, practical and useful technique that you learn to use right away. EFT is a powerful tool that helps in the three ‘A’s needed for healing and growth: Awareness, Acceptance and Action.

This is an experiential and interactive workshop including time for Q&A.

Participant feedback:
“The workshop gave me a deeper understanding of the interconnectedness of our mind, body, and feelings, along with how to use EFT. My biggest take away was the breathing and tapping technique that I can implement on myself and the student athletes I work with. Thank you Falguni for a warm, inclusive and thought provoking session” -Kadie

“Discussing emotions is always tricky for people. But ultimately the society we need to create to sustain the planet depends on our ability to speak emotionally with some sort of comfort or fluency.” – Josh Bernstein

Parenting with a difference!

Conscious Parenting workshopFrom homework, bed time, sibling rivalry and bullying issues to leaving for university, dating, and beyond – parenting can be an emotional roller coaster no matter how old your children are, bringing the stress of frustration, worry, guilt, and even self doubt.

Parenting is one of the toughest and most important jobs in the world and yet we get no formal training; we often parent from the unconscious basis of our own experience.


Did you know that your own inner child has a role in your parenting style?
Learn to notice how your own internal patterns are impacting your relationship with your child.

“ Your own life as a child is one of the strongest influences on how you parent today” – Robin Grille, Psychologist, Parenting Educator

This workshop focuses on creating an authentic connection with your child vs. managing your child’s behaviour. Based on decades of research which shows that a strong and healthy bond with your child is the foundation needed for him or her to be self-assured, empathic and resilient.


As a parent myself, I know how stress can build up and affect all the family members. Learning to parent “consciously” has been life-changing for me as a parent. The EFT technique has been invaluable in my journey as a parent, allowing me to have a loving and connected relationship with my children who are now 17 and 21 years old. I am passionate about sharing my work with all parents out there because I know this works.

Spend less time stressing and more time loving. Learn the EFT technique for your own stress and worries, as well as how to teach it to your children. Plus listening skills, building rapport and developing empathy.

This workshop will address:

  • Calming young children having strong emotional feelings
  • Dealing with nightmares and fears
  • Issues with friends, bullying, isolation, feeling left out
  • Aches and pains
  • School/University stress, confidence, performance anxiety
  • Moving school, home or country
  • Helping children of all ages deal with stress in their lives

Helpful for you as a parent to address:

  • Building a closer bond and connection with your child
  • Recognising fears vs. values
  • Frustration with sibling rivalry, child’s behaviour
  • Anger with children
  • Exhaustion as a parent
  • Feeling like a bad parent
  • Not feeling connected to your child/children
  • Helpless with helping your child
  • Feeling alone as a parent

Learn to be consciously present with your children, recognise their needs, so they can effectively deal with life’s challenges and have the confidence and resilience to pursue their dreams.

“The greatest burden a child must bear is the unlived life of the parents.” – Carl Jung
