TRANSPARENCY STATEMENT

TAMING OLIVIA is run with integrity and honesty and because of that I'd like to include the following information. 

  • I use the money I earn in separate paid work to create free resources at Taming Olivia and at the minute I can just about cover this. In the future, I hope to get helpful worksheets and books printed and into the hands of vulnerable people in hospitals and our kids in schools for free. These resources need to be easily accessible for those who need it most. As this grows, I will need more funding in order to print and publish more resources. This is the reason why at some point in the future, I will open a shop and sell various educational well-being packs. I would love nothing more than to give away everything I make for free but, sadly at the minute, it’s just not doable. For Taming Olivia to grow, and for it to help more people, there needs to be a source of income. I will post about free donations and give always as a way of celebrating this process, to hold myself accountable and to keep the transparency running through everything we do. If you would like to help with funding please contact me at the address below or please use the Support Our Work button.

  • I am not a therapist, OCD/ mental health coach or medical professional. I've seen some seriously bad practice over my years of advocacy and know how important it is to get proper professional help if you are struggling. So please make sure you talk to your medical/mental health professional. This post may support you on this journey too along with these signposting pages.

  • I am a qualified teacher so I am qualified to talk about learning styles and how best to learn. I am qualified to develop and teach my own schemes of work about things like mental health, well-being and self-care strategies in line with the UK Governments Educational Policies and Curriculum. I also have loads of experience in creating fun, accessible and vibrant resources that will support learning.

  • I am always extremely careful about who we work with and whose work I share. Ethics and integrity is always chosen over exposure and/or financial gain. I try to make sure that every choice I make is done with the utmost of care. I've built up a bank of medical professionals who I trust over the years and I will seek their opinions if I am in need of clarification on anything.

  • If you have any more questions for me regarding Taming Olivia or the points above please feel very free to contact me!
