Coming along to a two day workshop will help your child understand themselves so they can…
Parents come along with kids so they know what their child has learnt so they can use the language and strategies at home to support them.
Content is presented at an age appropriate level for the two different workshops. Parents are given some content at an adult level, however our main focus is to ensure the kids understand.
A portion of the content on feelings and coping with problems has the potential to trigger feelings of sadness, anger or fear in grown ups and children. This is normal and healthy (although it doesn’t feel like it at the time). In other words – this program isn’t all roses – but it gives you everything you need to dig out those weeds if you are willing to be a little uncomfortable along the way! You don’t have to dig out weeds in the workshop, this is something you may like to do at home if and when you and your child are ready. (In reality the workshop is easily 95% roses!)
If you join a workshop with an open heart, an open mind and a willingness to learn and apply some new knowledge and strategies (that are proven and effective) then you and your child will definitely get way more than your ‘money’s worth’ – guaranteed!
A registration form will be made available to you when you purchase your ticket for the workshop. If you or your child have special needs or requirements (such as allergies or different abilities) please ensure you fill in the appropriate section so consideration can be made.
$440 per child and accompanying parent for the two days
$220 for an additional child and $110 for an additional parent or carer attending the same workshop
Payment to be made at time of booking or email for direct debit payment option ($44 for 10 weeks).
If your child has an NDIS plan, please email for an invoice.
If you don’t think the workshop was ‘worth it’, your money will be refunded.
The Sparky and Shady program is compatible with knowledge and strategies from humanist psychology, positive psychology, cognitive behaviour therapy, neuroscience, quantum science and social-emotional wellbeing. Some of these areas of research will be referenced in the workshop.
“Sparky and Shady captures the core information that children need to understand themselves and thrive; plus, it provides guidelines for parents to follow so that they can best support the emerging self of their precious little ones. It works with special needs children and can be adapted to all levels. Thanks Kathy for bringing Sparky into our lives and helping to befriend Shady.”

“Kathy, I just wanted to let you know how much your workshop has done for Kiyarna, myself and my two youngest daughters. I set an intention early this year to help children in connecting with their energy, mind and body so I could help them in believing in their uniqueness and I have looked at courses but couldn’t quite find what resonated with my intention – that was until yesterday! I am so happy that you have created this opportunity for our children. You are really changing lives and families. I now feel like I don’t need to look so hard for “something or a course etc.” as you have got this and now I want to spread the word and let so many other beautiful families know all about you. You are amazing and you should be so proud of the baby you have created. I am blown away with it all and the way you have made this so child friendly. I had to stop and think (which is what made me sit down and type this) WOW how lucky are our children to be able to begin the unpacking of their baggage and embrace their feelings now…. imagine the world in 20 years when these children are young adults!!!! Thank you for everything”
