Anxiety Relief With Mindfulness for Teachers and Parents

Aimed at equipping teachers and parents with practical effective tools to use for both themselves and children.

A wonderful weekend relaxing and experiencing 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.

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.

Spend a weekend switching off and experiencing 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.

We will listen to some relaxing music, Tibetan singing bowls and learn to colour mindfully a remarkable relaxing technique to develop!

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.

“Colette is a wonderful, warm and inviting lady, from the first day we met, I felt able to connect with myself for the first time in a long time, I was at a stage where I was feeling overwhelmed at work and this was spilling into my personal life, affecting my sleep, I had very low energy, feeling tired all the time.  Looking at yourself is not something any of us do enough of, learning about how you relate with others and actually getting to the root of the reason why you behave in certain patterns is eye opening.  I would highly recommend Colette for anyone feeling stuck in life, you won’t regret it.”

“I have spent years at therapy and self awareness courses that never worked and I spent 4 hrs with you and for the 1st time in my life being mindful and living in the moment makes perfect sense and can’t believe the silliest of techniques work immediately for me .
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 “
