The paws mindfulness workshop came at the perfect time for my pre-teen daughter. They have so much to contend with at that age with School and with their physical and social development. The course has been very effective in helping my daughter learn techniques she could use when feeling anxious or nervous or even upset. These tangible tools have enabled her to keep her mind and body calm in stressful situations, allowing her to get through them successfully where she would previously have felt stuck. My daughter didn’t have any prior expectations going into the class, mindfulness was a new concept to us, however Jenny led the discussions in a way the put the children at ease so that they engaged with the subject and really enjoyed the class. It helped for them to realise that they were not alone, but in fact many children (and adults) can often feel stressed and anxious. My daughter applied her new techniques from the first lesson straight away and found that they helped her, so she was keen to return and learn more. She uses one of the breathing techniques every night to help her fall asleep. Generally she seems a lot happier.
