Tell us about Unleash – Free Your Mind, Live Fully & Achieve Your Dreams.

Anxiety is extremely prevalent among young people and can be particularly debilitating. It can impact their emotional development and learning, and can present physically as fatigue, headaches, stomach aches and trouble sleeping.

Unleash is a fun, practical, and easy-to-understand journal designed to help your child feel empowered and confident. The book is structured around critical lessons on understanding anxiety as a natural response to stress, developing resilience through neuroplasticity, and employing effective emotional regulation and problem-solving strategies. It incorporates dozens of evidence-based strategies to help your child deal with anxiety, turn goals into actionable steps, and feel liberated.

Ideal for children between the ages of 8 and 12, Unleash emphasizes core values of self-acceptance, courage and seeking support to help your child build knowledge and confidence as they learn about anxiety and why they feel anxious.

The book also covers topics including:

  • The brain,

  • Body signs,

  • Relaxation strategies,

  • Self-worth,

  • What it takes to be brave,

  • Problem-solving, and

  • The connection between thoughts, feelings and behavior

Through its pages, readers are empowered to recognise their inner strength, cultivate a positive mindset, and take actionable steps towards achieving their dreams. An excellent tool for every child, Unleash instills the morals of perseverance, empathy, and self-efficacy, offering a roadmap to cope with anxiety and thrive beyond it.

What inspired you to write Unleash – Free Your Mind, Live Fully & Achieve Your Dreams?

Unleash was inspired by watching my daughter struggle with anxiety.

As a parent, seeing your child in turmoil and feeling helpless about how to assist them is disheartening. Having to witness my amazing little human’s boundless potential get constrained by anxiety was profoundly distressing to me.

This personal experience and my background as a registered psychologist propelled me to take action. I wanted to create something not just for my daughter but for all children facing similar challenges. Thus, Unleash was born out of a desire to combine professional tools and personal insights into an accessible, engaging format.

This book is a labor of love aimed at empowering children to navigate their emotions and unleash their true potential, ensuring that anxiety becomes a challenge they are equipped to overcome rather than a barrier that blocks them from accomplishing their dreams.

How did you feel when you found out you received a Book Excellence Award?

When I learned that Unleash had received a Book Excellence Award, it was both a surprise and an honor.

The Book Excellence Awards differs from other award programs because of the prestigious recognition it receives in the literary world and the support offered to authors. Unlike other awards that only focus on the accolade, the Book Excellence Awards provides an opportunity for authors to gain credibility and visibility in their field. It is significant because it focuses on not only the writing but also the impact of the work.

Receiving this award was a powerful affirmation that the book is valuable and has the potential to change young readers’ lives, which is incredibly rewarding for me as an author.

How did your background and experience influence your writing?

The confluence of my professional expertise, creative endeavors in educational content development, and personal parenting experiences led me to write in the children’s education genre.

I have over 20 years’ experience as a psychologist with an extensive background in creating therapeutic activities for children. Through my business, Superpower Kids, I’ve developed content to assist parents in supporting their children’s social and emotional growth. In addition, my role as a parent deeply shaped my approach, providing me with firsthand insight into the challenges and triumphs of nurturing young minds.

After witnessing an increasing number of children grappling with mental health issues, especially anxiety, I felt a definite call to action to do something about it. Unleash is designed to be a practical tool that educates and empowers children and their families to address mental health proactively, with hope and understanding.

What is one message you would like readers to remember?

Feeling anxious is a normal part of being human; it’s our body’s way of protecting us. However, sometimes our body sends us these “be careful!” signals even when we’re safe, like a false alarm.

Unleash shows children that with the right tools, they can learn to spot these anxiety signals early, and figure out when to listen to them and when to challenge them.

Most importantly, the book reminds readers that they’re not alone in feeling this way, and there’s nothing wrong with feeling anxious. By reading it, I hope children learn to manage their feelings, understand themselves better, and feel ready to tackle anything that comes their way with both confidence and courage.
