Read more about who MindfulnessUK partners with to develop Mindfulness and Compassion for Staff, Children and Young People:



I now have the skills to teach my students how to be kind to themselves and others. It has really changed the feeling in the classroom and the whole school,  I can’t recommend it highly enough.

I enjoyed the Course and it was really good to know that my organisation/ employer valued my wellbeing.

I feel like the old me, but new.

People have been more aware of their stress levels and how to manage them.

We have begun using stillness, reflective time and short mindful practices with the children and this is having a positive impact on calming them and helping them to focus.

We give out every day to the young people in our care and the mindfulness training helps us feel that we are valued too.

Every Organisation is different. Our qualified Mindfulness teachers have a wealth of experience in education, health and social care settings and tailor each Programme delivery to the needs of the staff, children and young people.
