Event description

Description

Are there young people in your life that suffer from anxiety? Mindful practice can help.

Research from Anxiety UK shows us that 1 in 10 young people aged 5-16 are suffering from a mental health disorder so, just like adults, it's not uncommon for children to struggle with their emotions when faced with difficult situations.

Mindfulness practice is now recommended by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence as a way to reduce stress and prevent depression and it is increasingly being used within schools.


Our 6 week Mindful Munchkins programme, designed specifically for primary school children, is a great way to help kids feel happier, calmer, improve their concentration and get on better with others whilst having fun!

The young, developing brain works very differently to an adult one so the mindful teaching approach needs to be tailored to suit this.

In each session there are a host of engaging and interactive mindful activities which have hidden techniques. These techniques come in useful and can be called upon when the children are feeling anxious and need help to deal with difficult situations and general day-to-day stress. Group sizes are kept small with only 5/6 in a session so that the teacher can spend high quality time with each participant.

This programme is available for children aged 8-11yrs.

When: Tuesday 16th January until 27th February 2018 (with 1 week break 13th Feb due to school holidays)

Time: Sessions are every Tuesday, 4.30pm - 5.30pm

Location: 7a Haddington Place, Edinburgh, EH7 4AE
easily accessible by bus, train, tram and car (with free parking outside on Leith Walk)

Cost: £63.50
