Children & Teenagers:
Pressures are everywhere for young people and children. Friendship issues, school, stress, competition, 'no jobs', exams, the internet, peer pressure, parents, smartphones, relationships, puberty, 24/7 access to cameras, body image, sexuality, social media etc.
In these sessions I work with young people, their parents and teachers to look at where the pressure comes from, exactly what it is and how it can affect not just society at large but us as individuals. Up to date research supports bespoke sessions that are interactive, educational and practical - leaving pupils with skills they can use.
"It was very educational and fun and a useful life skill to know. I wish I knew this earlier to help me through my previous exams."
It seems rare today to find people who are not feeling stressed or under pressure. Our 24/7 lives have made it hard for many of us to simply stop and appreciate what we have. Taking time to learn simple techniques to help us to 'stop and smell the roses' are so beneficial. I have been educating adults since 2002, teaching Mindfulness, Meditation & Stress Management techniques to groups of all sizes and ages and have seen how learning these simple skills can create a healthier, happier life.
Whether you are considering these sessions for children or adults my wealth of meditation and mindfulness experience will give each person invaluable guidance on how to use these skills now and in the future.
If you are interested to learn about the pressures affecting young people today I also offer evening talks on these which have had terrific feedback.
"Very informative and useful session with plenty of information handouts to take away and use..."

Nearly 80,000 children and young people suffer from severe depression.
Between 1 in every 12 and 1 in 15 children and young people (of both sexes) deliberately self-harm. Over the last ten years the number of young people being admitted to hospital for self-harm has increased by 68%. [Source: YoungMinds. 2015]
