Would you love your child to have better listening skills,

attention span, confidence and self- esteem?

 

Relax Kids uses relaxation techniques,visualisations and meditations to help children recognise their strengths and manage their emotional journey through life.

Regular relaxation will help your child’s concentration, focus and learning and will help them to manage anxiety and worries. It will also help them to develop their imagination skills and problem solving skills. Learning to be comfortable with yourself, content in silence or on ones own is a skill that no one is ever too young to start learning.

These techniques provide a toolbox of skills that can used at school, clubs, sleep overs, school trips and as they develop into teenagers and spend more time out of your company to help them feel safe, confident and in control of their life.

  • To recognise name and express their feelings, helping them to communicate clearly and effectively.

Mighty Monster Relaxation Adventures.

This term we will be looking at the monster emotions we ALL experience. Children will explore their different emotions in a fun way, learning to connect with each other and their shared experiences. They will learn techniques, to name, tame and train their monster feelings.

Positive thinking and affirmations are fabulous and can really help but the real power comes when we accept our shadow side, put our hand up and own our emotions and what we do with those big feelings. We do not shame, blame or deny those feelings but seek to understand and befriend them using mindfulness techniques, creative visualisation, kindness and compassion.
