Anxiety Relief With Mindfulness for Teachers and Parents Workshop
Aimed at equipping teachers and parents with practical effective tools to use for both themselves and children.
Experience and learn some of the best mindfulness techniques, with a talk on the neuroscience of mindfulness.
Walk away refreshed, rejuvenated and equipped to face life’s challenges and support our kids.
Mindfulness gives you a choice in every moment to replace fear, frustration, stress and anxiety with compassion, concentration, emotional balance, and greater joy for you and your kids.
Low level chronic anxiety and stress is wearing out both our minds and our bodies, constantly releasing small amounts of adrenaline and cortisol into our system and we are simply not wired to cope with this and neither are our kids! There are ways to combat this and drive down the levels of anxiety we experience.
Use this workshop to switch off and experience each of the three main mindfulness techniques which provide a specific tool to help us and our kids develop a peaceful mind and a more relaxed body.
Colette is a lecturer in Mindfulness at the School of Education, University of Aberdeen and has run workshops for hundreds of teachers and parents. She has been practicing mindfulness and meditation for over 20 years and has visited India numerous times to sit with wise monks and teachers and develop her practice and understanding.

I would highly recommend you for both personal and Business stress management and I hope to continue to work with you. I came away from our session feeling that the weight of life’s stresses had been lifted off my shoulders. Your mindfulness coaching has changed the way I live my life ,I was a highly stressed business owner and lived in a world against the clock from the minute I awoke till I went to bed each night . They have also impacted my Business and personal life and I have a totally different way of dealing with stress and it really helps me to be a better person both in my Business and my busy family life “
