We are thrilled that you've expressed an interest in what we do, thank you.
There are many benefits of practicing Mindfulness, some of which include:
* GREATER SELF-AWARENESS
* KINDNESS, COMPASSION
* PEACEFUL SLEEP
* IMPROVED FOCUS
* A SENSE OF CALM
* TO FLOURISH AND BE JOYFUL
* FACT: DID YOU KNOW THAT PRACTICING MINDFULNESS REGULARLY REDUCES ACTIVITY IN THE BRAIN'S AMYGDALA (FIGHT OR FLIGHT ZONE), MEANING THAT WE BECOME LESS REACTIVE TO CHALLENGING SITUATIONS THAT ARISE AND MORE EMOTIONALLY STABLE. HOW AMAZING IS THAT!

Small group sessions can be arranged in the comfort of your home and usually run weekly for the duration of the school term.
During sessions I teach calming breathing techniques, helpful strategies to manage emotions, awareness games, as well as promoting ways in which to stay present (not worrying about the past or future). All of this is done in a creative and playful way.
Please get in touch for more information.
I currently offer 1:1 sessions to children & young adults, both in and outside the London area. Zoom sessions are also available.
Regular weekly sessions are usually recommended, and last for either 30 minutes or 1 hour. These sessions are an ideal way to tackle specific areas of concern such as anxiety, low self-esteem, anger issues, lack of focus, and coping with certain types of special needs.
Family sessions and small private groups are
also available upon request.
I offer bespoke workshops in schools to all year groups.
Please do get in touch if you would like further information on this.
