Mindful Monkeys - Dunfermline Oct 2016
Tue 25 October 2016, 18:45 – 20:00 BST
Does your young child suffer from anxiety stopping them living a carefree life?
Does your child use their vivid imagination to overthink things and create worries that don't exist?
Do they fear what may happen when you are not around and find it increasingly difficult to settle at night?
Following my work with children over the last couple of years, I have created a program of 6 Workshops specifically designed for young 6-10 year old children who suffer from worry, anxiety, sleep issues, low self esteem and lack of confidence.
Mindful Monkeys was created as a direct result of seeing an increased need for an alternative way to support both children and parents. This program is a new solution to the issues affecting our little ones who are becoming increasingly overwhelmed with what our modern day life is putting in front of them. The NHS is unable to cope with the demand, with families having to wait months on a CAHMS referral and even then there are no real tangible toosl to help at home. Some parents are reluctant to even go down that route and are looking for a new way to help support their own children.
The issues you face are very real. They affect day-to-day life and disrupt the whole family. And ultimately you are looking for some way for your children to know how amazing they are and for you to feel empowered to help them in your own home. But you are not sure exactly how?
The aim of this programme of six workshops is to support both the parents and the children at the same time. The children AND one parent are invited to attend all of the 6 sessions together so they can experience the transformation at the same time but also learn how to create strategies that will work at home.
The children will learn how to:
- understand how their brain works and how to tame their inner chimp
- let go of things that are worrying them
- how to move through uncomfortable feelings so they don't feel overwhelmed
- how to respond to worry & anxiety when they appear
- how to relax through 'quiet time'
Parents will learn:
- strategies for using at home when worries & anxieties appear
- how to recreate techniques at home so you feel more in control
- language to use when your child may appear to be struggling with their emotions
- how to manage your own self during the madness
- how to relax through mindfulness
- that you are doing a brilliant job already!!!!
I may be a Family Support/Life Coach but I'm also a single mum to my own sensitive child and using my skills as a coach, hypnotherapist and NLP practitioner I create a very safe, relaxed, open and caring environment for changes to take place but also for us to have fun! In these workshops I use the same techniques that prove so transformational during my 1to1 sessions with my young clients (and their parents) and will involve storytelling, NLP for children, imaginative play and mindfulness. It will be so much fun, the children love it and it won't feel like hard work at all!
These sessions are also an opportunity to approach the issues you and your little one are experiencing in a different way. It allows a different kind of discussion between child and parent about the behaviours that affect the whole family. It provides a very safe place to have emotional discussions and spend quality time with your child in a nurturing environment.
