Mindfulness for Teenagers
Adolescence is a time of great changes for Young People. Rapid changes in the brain and body produce an array of different experiences, feelings and emotions for teens to manage & navigate. It can be time of great anxiety, stress, fear and insecurity for many teens as they negotiate the way through school, exams, friendships, relationships and making choices about the future. With this stress and worry often comes problems with sleep, concentration, difficulties with exams and managing relationships at home & with friends.
To help your teenage daughter or son deal with this challenging time, Bright Sparks Coaching is delighted to offer a new 6 Week Mindfulness Course for Young People.
The course gives young people an opportunity to learn and practice a wide variety of mindfulness practices and incorporates exercises from Eline Snel, Author of the best selling books Sitting Still Like a Frog & Breathe Through This.
We will also explore;
How to deal mindfully with stress , worry and difficult thoughts
How to be kinder and more compassionate to oneself
How to integrate mindfulness into our communication & relationships with others
Each Class includes:
Guided Mindfulness Practices - Time to stop, breathe and be
Group Discussion - Learning from each others experiences
Personal Reflection - Learning more about one self.
Participants will be encouraged to continue to practice daily at home using guided recordings given & the Sitting Still Like a Frog APP
