Mindfulness for Teenagers ( Aged 13-18)

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 Mindfulness Workshops and Courses to teach young people how to practice mindfulness and use it in their daily lives to support themselves feel calmer, more focused and able to deal with the challenges they face.
