from as young an age as possible, our children need to understand that when the branch breaks they can trust their wings

Welcome to

with Jane Tyson

fun and playful coaching, tutoring and resilience bolstering services with a focus on "contribution and community" virtual or face to face, 1:1 & Group

It turns out it isn't stickers, targets and rewards that makes most of us tick, rather we seek meaningful connections, community and a sense of belonging (and fun).

Kids "joie de vivre" is getting crushed too, so Resilient Kids was born out of frustration, my way of creating a movement to do something about it.

I specialise in working "in the moment" with kids

Guided by their interests.

A natural side effect is they relax, learn and feel good about themselves, and their parents do too!

Boosting VISION, VITALITY & VOICE

I have a full DBS, and am an experienced teacher, creative coach, wellbeing facilitator, youth mental health first aider, community host and managing moments guide. As a mum of teenagers, I am passionate about supporting children's mental health and wellbeing. My Education with Psychology BA Hons degree also inspired a lifelong interest in children's potential.

I live in Guildford, Surrey UK with my husband, Paul, a journalist and fellow wildlife gardener and allotment grower, plus our two teens. I've been working with primary-aged kids for almost 25 years and have taught in state, private and international settings.


Some feedback -


"Absolutely fabulous teacher for my home educated daughter. Jane provides us with a mixed curriculum to meet all of her educational needs, and tailors each lesson to suit my daughters learning style and pace, including allowing freedom to choose subjects and preferred learning approach. She's also able to provide us lessons in the evening, which works best for our daily schedules and my daughters preferred learning time. It took us a while to find a tutor that my daughter enjoyed learning from, and in her words "I like her because she's not boring". Would recommend to anyone" Jenny Newland


“I don't think you realise the impact you had on our son's future after we met you! Such an amazing teacher and person” Carol Evans


Jane is very engaging, and looks to really get to know each child, in order to formulate a bespoke plan. She uses new and innovative ideas on how to facilitate the learning of each child. Dr Richard Mithen

"If you have kiddos in your life, whether family or friend. I can highly recommend Jane Tyson's Resilient Kids. Thanks Jane for the pleasure of hosting your sessions as part of our Dulux Wellfest events today" Debi

"Jane creates a safe, calming space for children to express themselves. Over the course of the sessions I've attended, self-consciousness melts away and you'll see that there's nothing like the joy of a child who's done something they didn't think they could do" Jen Gale

"Thank you Resilient Kids for an inspired and refreshing experience! I often talk about "resiliency" with adults but we have yet to translate that conversation into the language of our small human. He had a great time and we look forward to learning with you again soon" Dee

A mum asked her daughter in her words she liked my online Resilient Kids' sessions and she said “I like them, I like the feeling I can just be myself and Jane gives me lots of encouragement”

My Youth Mental Health First Aid Certificate

In 2021 I was involved with co-authoring a book with 69 other mums for children. On its release day, it went to number one across 8 categories on Amazon.

Meanings Over Milestones

"Jane, you bring a reality that folk really relate to. This includes the ability to make mistakes, to not mind, and to find ways to recover from mistakes" Peter Jones, Dad

"I would definitely recommend and tell friends about Resilient Kids purely because anything that can encourage and empower our children to be the best they can be and be happy and confident with who they are is a win for me as a mum" Lizzy - Mum of two wonderful girls aged 10 and 5.

The video below was created by my colleague Colin in response to this post about the value of nature for our chidren's mental health and wellbeing.

Always a pleasure to chat with Jonathan too

"Jane, do you teach others how to deliver your Resilient Kids programme, actually it's more of a philosophy isn't it?" said Alistair

"Yes, it's my intention to create a movement of Resilient Kids spaces that can be simply woven into family life, schools, clubs, organisations etc and share the 3Vs - VISION, VITALITY AND VOICE"
