My name is Syndi Grambau, I am the founder of Embrace – Emotional Wellness Centre. Our wellness centre focuses on empowering young girls, tweens and adult women in our community to feel empowered, educated and inspired. I am multi passionate and have dual careers. I am an educator, speaker, certified counselor, group facilitator, wife and parent to two amazing daughters.
Excitingly, I completed the Girl Power Training by Joni Combes in December of 2020 and adapted my love of Daring Classrooms by Dr Brené Brown and “You Glow Girl” was born. A full day workshop encompassing positive psychology principles and embedding the learning through dance, art, craft, drama and vibrant discussions. Our core topics are Identity, Strengths, Positive Friendships, Managing Friendship Issues, Resilience & Growth mindset, Mindfulness and Gratitude practice. I have referenced each topic with learning outcomes throughout this booklet.
On a personal note this is something very close to my heart and something that could have made a huge difference in my younger years. I struggled with low self-esteem and was bullied throughout high school. It’s amazing how those experiences stay with you! I wish I could have attended a program that taught me the importance of self belief, self love and inner confidence. I am honoured to do this work and teach the girls that they can absolutely do hard things, they have the power to choose a growth mindset and blossom into a confident, kind, assertive and brave young woman.
I would love to see your Miss Glow Girl at one of our upcoming events. As always please feel free to reach out to me anytime.

Empower, educate and encourage all girls to find their inner confidence, love themselves unconditionally and know they are worthy of love and belonging.
Encouraging, supporting and treating each person with kindness and role modelling these behaviours through every interaction. Showing empathy, understanding, compassion, transparency and sincerity at all times.
Being brave and understanding that we are resilient. We can do hard things AND we do hard things. Courage is contagious. Embracing the things we can change and letting go of the things that we cannot often requires courage.
Acting with honesty, sincerity and transparency at all times and always choosing what is right over what is fun, fast or easy. Treating each person as an individual while maintaining confidentiality, openness, respect and fairness.
Engaging with each person as an equal and respecting the diversity of our clients, colleagues and the community that we engage and interact with. A commitment to embracing individuality and creating an inclusive environment so all people have the belief that they have value and the right to belong.
“My daughter has already said she wants to attend the next holiday session and when I asked her what she would tell someone who wasn’t sure if they should attend or not, her response was “You should go because it is really fun, the teacher (Syndi) is really nice, and you get to learn lots about friendship and yourself!”
“My daughter went to the glow workshop and even though she was nervous at the start she felt comfortable for me to go because Syndi was so inviting and friendly. After the session my daughter wouldn’t stop talking about it and all the things they had done. We will be keen to attend another one!”
90 minute workshop
We also offer “Little Glow Girl” younger participants.
Recognising that children aged 6-8 years have specific developmental needs, our “Little Glow Girl” workshops are designed to introduce younger girls to the concepts of Growth Mindset, Identity and Self Esteem, Strengths and Goal Setting.
Workshops are shorter in length and tailored activities ensure younger participants feel safe in the workshop environment. Introducing girls to these topics from a young age helps build confidence and teaches them skills that they can apply to their own lives.
Full day workshop
The You Glow Girl program includes a full day workshop encompassing positive psychology principles, with a focus on evidence-based growth mindset approaches.

First things first, a SMILE. Other than that she just needs to bring morning tea and lunch. Please make sure you don’t send any nut products or chocolate. Finally, she needs to wear comfortable clothes as we move around a lot.

Our workshops provide participants with improved confidence and the knowledge, tools and skills needed to navigate friendships, love themselves unconditionally and overcome challenges. Our young girls will have a better understanding of who they are, what strengths they possess and an appreciation for the things that make them unique.
Our curriculum combines positive psychology practices, best practice teaching around Daring Way Classrooms by Dr Brené Brown and Girl Power training by Joni Combes.
Child safe practices are central to what we do. We recognise that there will be
circumstances where You Glow Girl workshops may bring up difficult emotions
and experiences for some participants. In line with best practice, we provide warm
referrals to relevant services where needed.
As we engage in child-related work we are also bound by the National Principles for
Child Safe Organisations.
Our workshops are run by qualified instructors with multidisciplinary backgrounds in human services, health and education. All facilitators have First Aid Training, a Working With Children Check and a Police Check.
Our workshops are designed for primary school aged kids (8 to 11 years). We often refer to this age group as “tweens”. Tweens are a unique cohort and arguably, are often “missed” in traditional programming. They are in a developmentally
tricky space – too “old” for a lot of primary based programs and too “young” for adolescent initiatives. Furthermore, there is a tendency in Australia to only intervene with children this age in a “crisis response mode” (ARACY 2008) rather
than in a proactive way. You Glow Girl has been designed with a strengths-based approach, to allow young girls to explore their identities in an engaging and supportive environment.
We also offer a “Little Glow Girl” (6 to 8 years) program for younger participants. With Little Glow Girl, we recognise the unique developmental needs of younger children, and a program has been developed with this in mind.

If you would like to book a workshop for a private group or organisation please get in touch and we will happily collaborate.
We are a registered Covid safe business and ensuring the highest level of health and safety is our top priority.
