The F-Words Life Wheel is an approach and way of thinking that facilitates conversations, interactions, engagement and goal setting for children and their families.

Lucy Charles and Arul Hamill are both Occupational Therapists, based in New Zealand, with over 25 years-experience working with children in a number of different health, educational and private settings. Lucy and Arul built on this work and their knowledge of coaching tools and techniques and developed the “F-Words Life Wheel” in collaboration with Kelly Reynolds Physiotherapist from Kidsplus Australia and CanChild Canada over the past few years. They present and teach the “F-Words Life Wheel” and Occupational Performance Coaching courses (developed by Dr. Fi Graham) internationally.
