SNAP Specialist Talk – Anxiety and Stress Management with Wendy Smith £10 per registered parent

Don’t miss SNAP’s upcoming Specialist Talk with Paralympian Wendy Smith whose mission is to tell her story and inspire others to reach their potential.
Born in Essex, Wendy was involved in a high-speed motorbike accident in 1989 when she was 17-years-old. It left her with severe spinal injury, cardiac arrest and resulted in years of rehabilitation. When doctors told her she would never walk again she was determined to prove them wrong.
She walked out of hospital eight months later. This opened Wendy’s eyes to the struggles and adversities many people face.
Wendy took up sport again and went on to represent Great Britain in the 2004 Paralympic Games in Athens as part of the wheelchair basketball team.
Wendy is now a successful mentor, qualified NLP Practitioner (Neuro-linguistic programming) and a motivational speaker.
“Over the years I have developed many different techniques that assist people in all environments,” says Wendy.
“I use my immense personal knowledge and experience of the ‘power of thought and intention’ to help others. All people should have the opportunity to explore their own potential.”
“We are delighted that Wendy is coming to The SNAP Centre to discuss strategies to help with stress and anxiety management for both parents and children” says Karen Boath Director (Family Services).
“She aims to help parents learn how to become aware of their own triggers and develop the ability to control and dissipate their levels of stress and anxiety. She will also help discover ways to support children with their anxiety.”
