What is Mindfulness and How Can it Help Me?
Mindfulness will help you move away from a thinking-based way of living into a more direct and immediate connection with everyday life and what’s going on around you.
Learn to leave behind worries about the past or the future, and start to build a sense of calm and connection with yourself and those around you.
Changing the way you look at life and react to your situation not only helps you to feel a sense of empowerment but can improve all aspects of your daily life

1:1 Mindfulness Therapy
Angie specialises in working with children and young people using mindfulness and compassion.
The way Angie works is to meet with the child/young person and their parent/parent carer to complete an initial assessment for one hour, taking all the details, explaining what Mindfulness is and how it may help, giving an experience of this and simple techniques to use immediately in daily life. If a young person is over 18 ideally it's good to meet them with their parent/parent carer and of course, it's the young person's choice whether they have them there with them in the assessment and/or any future sessions.
If Angie is the right person to work with your child/young person and they would like to engage in a Mindfulness programme (this consists of a session each week for a minimum of 6 weeks) she will offer a bespoke programme, with home practices and resources. The aim being to teach them way to reduce stress and anxiety, learn strategies to cope and new ways to become more confident in themselves. The number of sessions, timings and dates would be agreed by all parties and the cost is £60 per hour.
If you would like to go ahead with the assessment please click the link below to make a payment of £60 and call the office on 01823 323206 to book a time and date.
