The concept of a Growth and Fixed Mindset was developed by psychologist Prof Carol Dweck and popularized in her book, Mindset: The New Psychology of Success. "Hello Brain?" shows, teachers, parents and children what both of these mindsets look, feel and sound like in common situations that happen every day.

  • The first day at school - new experiences - being nervous
  • Frustration when learning something new - taking risks
  • Being aware of and choosing behaviours
  • Understanding that emotions can be controlled
  • The power of the words we use
  • Uncertainty and anxiety
Children will learn that by "talking to their brain" they can do many more things than they thought were possible in the beginning.

"Hello Brain?" is intended to be read to children by parents and teachers to stimulate discussion about the language to use to support and empower their children. By using and modelling the language demonstrated in "Hello Brain?" you can reinforce a positive growth mindset that will change the way your child thinks and responds to challenges ... it may also change how you think : )

Go to for teaching resources and my Growth Mindset blog.

I have been teaching in Primary schools for more than 20 years. In this time I became intensely aware of the difference that growth mindset language can make to children's learning.

I have seen time and again the difference a few simple phrases can make to a child's resilience, ability to learn and overall happiness. The joy of seeing this change is something I want to share with all teachers and parents.

The daily use of Growth Mindset language is one of the most powerful teaching tools I have ever used so I know this will work for you too.

If you buy this book, firstly thank you And secondly, if you see improvements in your children's lives it would mean the world to me if you would share your stories via an Amazon review or directly with me via my Instagram or facebook Hellobrain pages.

Please reach out to me as I would love to hear from you.
