Mindfulness at a Glance
What Is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is the ability to focusing our attention on the present moment on purpose and to accept what we experience without judgment i.e. without the filters of our thoughts and emotions…our judgments. Mindfulness involves training the brain to pay attention to the present moment, to our thoughts and feelings and to the world around us. People who practice mindfulness report enhanced health and wellbeing, increased resilience and improved performance i.e. focus and concentration, creativity, problems solving and decision making.
Working Mindfully with Individual Children and Young People
Our mindfulness-based approach helps children and young people to handle the pressures and challenges they face in life. We are able to provide opportunities for them to talk about their experiences and to explore their thoughts and feelings, helping them to develop a greater awareness and understanding of themselves and their situation, and to develop the emotional resilience needed throughout their lives.
Working In Schools and Colleges
We are able to help support with the emotional wellbeing of their students. We ensure we maintain regular contact with the schools, including providing regular feedback. We are able to identify regularly occurring issues and will suggest learning and development opportunities for students and/or teachers that can contribute to improving the health, wellbeing and performance of students.
