Using the Smart Young Minds framework (praised by teachers, counsellors, parents, coaches and social workers of every discipline), within our Mindfully Happy Schools Programme, we introduce participants to mindfulness, relaxation and creative visualisation techniques to help them to reframe and refocus their thinking and enhance their resilience and wellbeing.
Courses can be tailored to specific needs, including:
- Introduction to mindfulness workshops for staff, e.g. Inset day training
- S.M.A.R.T. (Stress Management And Relaxation Techniques) mindfulness and meditation weekly programme for staff or parents
- S.M.A.R.T. Young Minds Mindfulness, Resilience & Wellbeing programme, tailored to pupils relevant key stage level
Practicing mindfulness can help teachers to recognise emotional patterns and proactively regulate how they behave, responding in the way they want to rather than reacting automatically. It can also help teachers to savour the positive moments in their job—when they feel the joy of true connection with their students or resonate with the joy and excitement their students feel when learning clicks for them.
