Hi and welcome to Miraculous Me.
I’m Sandie Woods, a children's emotional health and wellbeing practitioner based in Wymondham just outside Norwich.
My background is working with children in primary schools with social, emotional, mental health (SEMH) and special educational (SEN) needs. Here I have developed a vast catalog of skills (see my training list below) to help support children, young people and their families. I am a Norfolk County Council Domestic Abuse Champion and also a qualified Family Support Practitioner. I have much experience of children with various needs including PDA, GDD, ASD, PTSD and ADHD.
I run Miraculous Me which helps educate and support children (and their families) with emotional development, mental health and well being. I have an enhanced DBS, am safeguarding certified by the NSPCC and am fully insured.
I’m a SEN mum and it's all because of my miraculous kids that I’m so passionate about helping all children to thrive in life. I am a keen user of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), commonly known as tapping, I am part of several mentorship schemes mentoring other ELSAs and SEN parents. In my spare time, I love to Power Hoop which is a bit like hula hooping but with a weighted hoop.
Why Miraculous Me?
I chose the name Miraculous Me as I believe it's crucial that all children understand for themselves what a miracle they really are. How can we love each other if we don't first love ourselves?
The science behind our psychology and physiology is often missed from children's education and younger years and this can cause problems when developing the skills to navigate life.
As for the butterfly symbol, this shows that life is a series of changes and we take time to grow into our true selves. Sometimes we might need a little bit of help with these developments and transitions and that is why Miraculous Me was created.
I believe in connecting with children & their families.
I believe in giving children a safe space to be.
I believe in unconditional positive regard and validation.
I am passionate about supporting the children & families in my community to be their best selves.
