Mindfulness Courses for Children and Young People at Home!
This program is for families who would like to bring more peace, ease and happiness into their homes. It is for children who are struggling to deal with their BIG emotions and feelings and who need some extra resilience and support in life. It's also for families who want to teach their childen to be happier, more confident, emotionally aware and resilient. All we really want for our children is their happiness. And mindfulness teaches children how to live a happier, more high vibe and positive life.
Children experience stress just like adults do – if not more so – and teaching them how to embrace mindfulness can go a long way to helping them live a happier and more peaceful life.
Long lasting and intense stress has been linked to a smaller memory centre in children’s brains. These differences in the brain also extend to cognitive ability, with children who live stressful lives performing less well on spatial memory tests.
Most parents and teachers would probably agree that stress in children is not good and finding ways to help them counter-act it can be life-changing.
Mindfulness and meditation helps children to counteract the effects of stress, with simple ways it can be brought into the child’s daily routine.
Happy In The Moment mindfulness courses help children to benefit from practising mindfulness, providing techniques which will help them to handle negative emotions and give them tools that they can use throughout their lives. They're fun, relaxed and focussed on positivity.
Following a course in mindfulness, children show improvements in attention, calmness, social compliance and even caring towards others! Research also shows that mindfulness training for children has the ability to increase attention and social-emotional awareness as well.
The Benefits of Mindfulness for Young People:
- Children are better able to stay more focused
- They're better able to pay more attention

About the course...
Imagine if your child were better able to manage their big emotions and feelings. Imagine if they were more confident, empowered and positive. Mindfulness provides so many benefits for your child which will ensure that family life is happier and more peaceful.
Over the course of 7-8 weeks your child will learn how to positively take control back of their life and manage their thoughts, feelings and behaviours. They will learn how to ramp up their happy-vibes and let go of the fear, anxiety and worry that is holding them back. They will have time and space to explore their inner world and learn how to manage the outer world.
The courses includes 7 modules, and the eighth session is only ever needed if we choose to spend more time on a particular module. Courses can be provided after school, in school holidays and at weekends.
I am passionate about Mindfulness and Meditation for young people. This is why I keep my rate for this tuition on zoom very affordable for families. Sessions are 45 minutes to 60 minutes long depending on the age of the child and are priced per session. Weekly payment is allowed, as well as paying in one lump sum.
45 minutes (zoom session)- £27

The Mindfulness course has been very enjoyable and informative. I am now much more confident moving forwards, that I can continue with a mindfulness approach in helping the children and others.
Leverington Primary School
Brilliant course! Easy and interesting to listen to. We were given different ways to meditate and it's good for me to relieve stress. I will definitely try to incorporate this into my personal life and in the nursery. Great techniques provided that brought things into perspective. Thank you! I cant wait to implement this at work and with the children.
