Parent & Child Programme
This supportive and unique eight week, child and parent programme uses a holistic approach to improving relationships and communication alongside parent and child mindfulness based guided meditation to alleviate stress and anxieties. There are two parts to this programme:-
- Mindfulness Based guided Meditation – Provides a wonderful experience for children and their parents to enjoy Guided Mindfulness based learning, meditation and wellbeing.
As with adults, children of all ages can benefit from mindfulness based practice and learning about a holistic approach to their wellbeing. Together we will work with the simple practice of bringing a gentle, accepting attitude to the present moment.
It can help parents and caregivers, too, by promoting happiness and relieving stress.
We will offer basic tips for adults and children from 6 years old as well as several activities that will help with everyday life and a restful sleep.
The Group takes place in the warm safe environment of our relaxation room with the comfort of the reclining chairs.
- Let’s get Together – It is a sad but true fact that the world can sometimes feel like a scary place, especially given the last two years during the Pandemic, but also current events that are broadcasted throughout each day reporting on wars, global warming, economic downturns bringing many families into poverty, and much more.
As a parent, we want to protect our children by allaying their fears and answer their questions but sometimes we too can feel overwhelmed and communication can become stilted for fear of saying the wrong thing.
Our eight weeks parent and child programme will aim to:
- Build resilience between parent and child, both individually and collectively
- Improve open communication by developing problem solving techniques to reduce worries and fears
- Allow opportunities to have fun together through creative media and promote spontaneity and decision-making.
