My name is Rachel Dickey I am a Holistic Practitioner. One of my roles is facilitating children’s and youth programs. Through personal development, awareness and understanding these programs promote healing, create positive change and inspire young people to be the best version of themselves.
We have a serious problem on our hands with our young people who are struggling. Many of our youth are simply surviving rather than thriving.
Low self-esteem and self-worth
I have had conversations with teenagers who are getting help and still feel alone, not heard, and numb.
When this happens we need intervention that supports the person in their entirety.
Most of the kids suffering today have been bullied whether it be at the hands of and adult or another child or experienced some kind of trauma. This doesn’t go away on its own. It takes time, commitment, ongoing support and guidance, love, compassion and understanding.
It takes a community to support children and sometimes an empire.
I have lived in the Boyne/Tannum community for 3 years and have seen first hand what school bullying has done to many. I have also worked with many children with differences that are struggling with simply being accepted by society and others.
I have been guided to make an offer to this community. I am seeking maximum 8 young people 13-16 yr olds who need and want help and maximum 8 children 8-11 year olds.
First bit more about me. I am a mother of four children, I am the founder of the Proud Peacock Children Programs. The last 7 years has been devoted to developing ways to help young people and their families. I have studied Holistic Counselling, Life Coaching, Child, Youth & Family Intervention, Meditation & Mindfulness, Tai Chi, Shamanism, Reiki and Crystal Healing.
My passion for helping children and families comes from a deep desire and a knowing that it is very much needed. At this time the level of suffering among our youth and children is high, I do not believe we were not born to suffer. There is more to the problem than the “problem”. We can help each other heal, grow and turn trauma into understanding, acceptance and peace.
If you have a teenager or child that is experiencing challenges, difficulties or just not feeling good about themselves I recommend you apply for a spot in this group.
More about why I can offer this -
They say people come into your life for all sorts of reasons, either to teach us or for us to teach them. I have had a few incredible mentors and teachers in my time so far. They have supported me in many ways. Which I am incredibly grateful for.
One of them is my very selfless friend who has endured a life of suffering at the hands of others. My friend has some stories that make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck and leave you feeling sick.
My friend's name is Georgie. Georgie has no material items in her life she does not own a house, car, boat or caravan. She has a few household items that brings her comfort such as furniture, clothing and her garden. She is a renter like many of us and has found herself homeless at times. She has been left with nothing but her fighting spirit many times in her life so far.
I think you have the picture. But there is more. Georgie had some superannuation that she gained access to. It was then she wanted to share some of it.
Georgie has always wanted to help children and she has insisted on funding some programs through Proud Peacock. She has asked me to share the programs message and healing to children because she wants to help those who are suffering like she did.
It means a lot to Georgie to offer the funding for this program. We want to help the children who are struggling in some way. Through therapeutic intervention we want to show them another way, we want to show them love, compassion, understanding, hope and healing. This is more than a program and this is available because of people who want better for all children and who have healed from their own trauma’s.
Despite my refusal of Georgie's financial offering she said "it is not about the money is about the healing".
My intentions for this program is to run a two day Lets Chill healing program for 13-16 yr and Proud Peacock program for 8 -11yr
