“Mindfulness helps me to relax and feel less fidgety and I don’t get tummy aches anymore”. – Year 1 pupil
Hi, my name is Julie Shearman and I am a qualified Connected Kids Tutor and support children and teens with mindful meditation. It is a privilege to do so.
I believe every child deserves an opportunity to learn these life skills to support them throughout their lives.
Why I do this work…
When I look back at my life I realise how I would definitely have benefited from finding the benefits of meditation at an earlier stage in life.
Mindful meditation had a powerful impact on my life and gave me the strength to connect to my true self and make impactful changes in my life. Imagine if each and every child had access to life skills that can help them live authentically, feel free to be themselves, connect to their inner resources, find their voice, learn ways to live with anxiety and stress and feel more calm, all the while being present in the moment. This is WHY I do this work.
Who I work with…
My approach is heart-centred and tailored to suit the individual or group I am working with.
I work in primary and secondary schools, with individual children and parents together with their children. I enjoy seeing the whole family thrive and feel more calm and accepting of how they feel.
Many schools, parents and children have reported the following benefits:
- Improved symptoms of anxiety and alleviate stress
- Improved ability to focus and study
- Better sleep
- More room to process memories and emotions
- Reduction or elimination of physical stress symptoms such as tummy aches and head aches
I also work with college and university students.
Lorraine’s Connected Kids course specialises in training us to work with neurodiverse children and I find this invaluable with my work with special needs children ( By the way it’s a myth the children have to stay totally still, I have found this to be a concern to many a parent or teachers when introducing them to mindful meditation)
“Julie has facilitated meditation at Norton School for both teachers and targeted pupils. Her skill, depth of knowledge calmness and professionalism have ensured that all sessions are individualised to the needs of the participants both child and adult. The feedback from teachers has been unanimous: ‘when can we have meditation again’ ‘ The sessions make me feel relaxed, de-stressed and ready for whatever life throws at me’ ‘Having time to relax enabled me to refocus’. Feedback from the children and their parents / carers have been equally positive. Julie has a natural insight into the needs of others and her work continues to have a positive impact on the school”. – Head Teacher
My background and other modalities…
Prior to founding my own business Liberations in 2007, I worked in the design /construction industry and Financial sectors working in project and change management. After starting a family I took the opportunity to reassess and retrain focussing on well-being and supporting others and built a business following my passions.
I found true alignment when I started working with children. They teach us so much when we listen from the heart.
I am a qualified Reflexologist, Reiki Practitioner, EFT Practitioner and Life Coach working with all ages.
I have also worked as a therapeutic mentor and have seen many children with complex needs benefit from sharing mindful meditation.
