MINDFULNESS FOR CHILDREN & FAMILIES
In home counselling supports for children and families
Tailored to the needs of specific child or family, but generally recommended to be at least 4-6 sessions. Treatment is often short term and solution focused helping children and families incorporate evidence informed mindfulness practices into their home and every day life.
Groups and workshops for children geared towards their mental health and well-being, using CBT, arts and play therapy, mindfulness and yoga techniques, with the goal of building coping and resiliency skills.
Parent education workshops on a variety of relevant topics, including child mental health, mindful parenting, raising resilient children, understanding temperament ad goodness of fit, attachment, etc.
I also provide therapeutic groups for children and adults incorporating evidence informed principles that I have extensive training in as a MSW.
Professional Development Education Workshops/Practical Frame work and Curriculum
In classroom, teachers/educators often have a very challenging task of behavior management and meeting curriculum goals and reaching different needs of the differing learning styles of children in their class.
Let it Go! Helps classrooms function better by incorporating important aspects of child mental health and wellbeing using mindfulness principles that are very easy to integrate into regular curriculum and which leave teachers feeling more relaxed and calmer, as well as the children better behaved and more capable of focusing and participating.
Professional Development workshop for educators and school staff is very important and Let it Go offers a variety of topics on infant child mental health, affects of trauma and mental health on developing brain, anxiety management, behavior management, mindfulness practices as well as teaching to different temperament and learning styles, etc.
This can be also be used ideally in child care centers for children under 3and also in family doctor’s office. Anxiety and mental health are pressing concerns in schools currently and therefore having specific techniques introduced early on I pivotal for long term coping and mental health
