Making mistakes, being corrected, being told you’re wrong, losing … these are common triggers for increased anxiety and unwanted behaviour. Why? Simply because we forgot we are ‘human beings’ and not ‘human doings’ – we think we are worthy based on what we ‘do’ and feel bad when what we ‘do’ is criticised!

The messages in this book share with children of all ages (0 to 100+) that we are all already perfect just for being us. We learn that what we do will sometimes be perfect and sometimes not – and that every mistake we make is simply a learning opportunity! Our doing might not always be perfect but OUR BEING WILL ALWAYS BE PERFECT

About the author (2018)

Tanya Curtis is a Behaviour Specialist, Counsellor and the founding director of Fabic – a multi-disciplinary Behaviour Specialist Centre supporting children and adults. Through Tanya’s clinical experience she has come to realise that people’s poor psychological wellbeing has a lot to do with living from the many false ideals that we subscribe to, like needing to ‘do’ everything perfectly rather than living from the natural and innate perfection that our ‘being’ is and always will be. Tanya knows the messages in this book will support many to live in a way that can only reduce their anxiety and thus their use of unwanted behaviour as they develop increased esteem, understanding and acceptance of themselves and other people.
