LAENI GITTINS

DBT Facilitator – TEENS & TWEENS STEP-UPP

Laeni has always had a passion for children and their well being. A strong believer in open communication, when dealing with both adults and children, she believes when the basics are impaired, it usually leads to misinterpretation and misunderstanding.

Laeni regards The Step-Upp Tweens programme as instrumental in equipping children with essential tools to deal with conflict and change, early in life so they grow up to be resilient, happy and successful adults.

Being a mother herself, Laeni understands the importance of skills-based training for children; particularly when faced with the ever changing environment in which they are growing up, such as new technology and social media.

Laeni is co-creator of the Step-Upp Tweens programme. She is confident that the skills children gain will be invaluable to successfully navigating life’s challenges.
