Mindfulness and emotional support for children
What is Relax Kids?
I initially discovered Relax Kids during the first Covid-19 lockdown, when my own son found it challenging to cope with the sudden changes that the pandemic brought into our world. I decided I wanted to have the skill set to help children create a better relationship with themselves and create a good foundation for their own mental health and Relax Kids ticked all the boxes.
Relax Kids offers a unique system of children's relaxation and mindfulness that will help children decrease stress and anxiety, increase attention span, and improve concentration.
The sessions support good mental health, children’s self-esteem, and resilience. Relax Kids has shown to improve emotional wellbeing and behaviour in children.
Relax Kids sessions incorporate movement and exercise, mindfulness and relaxation games, stretching, peer or self-massage, breathing techniques, affirmations and visualisations.
Each session is based upon an imaginative theme, and gently introduces children to simple and fun mindfulness tools that can be used in all areas of their lives.
Why do children attend Relax Kids sessions?
Children attend Relax Kids classes to learn about their emotions and how to manage them. Through practising mindfulness and a variety of techniques, children learn how to self soothe, manage their moods and improve their relationship with themselves.

How can I sign my children up to Relax Kids?
Please contact me via email or telephone to book.
What will my involvement be as a parent?
Whenever I work with children and adolescents, I also work with parents. The initial consultation will always be with the adult and so will my contract of work. Here is what you can expect from initial contact to delivering sessions:
Initial contact through social media or website/email.
Receive a response within 24 hours.
Book a video-call, phone call or a meeting in person to discuss your initial needs.
Book a video-call or a meeting in person with you and your child for initial introductions.
Receive a contract to sign digitally with cost and policy details.
Start sessions, typically weekly or fortnightly with your child. Depending on your child’s needs, you can take a step back and simply attend the sessions without getting involved or I can deliver the sessions as a family activity.
Follow up calls after every session to discuss progress and feedback.
