Based in Colchester, Essex for in-person sessions and sessions also available online
Hello, my name is Louise and I am a mindfulness and yoga teacher. I provide a bespoke service to support anxiety in children 7-12 (with yoga and mindfulness) and young teens 13-15 (with mindfulness).
I have trained in the Connected Kids method with Lorraine Murray and the Creative Mindfulness for Kids method with Louise Shanagher. I am also a registered yoga teacher for children up to 12 years of age.
I use evidence-based practices to empower children and teens to understand their anxiety, build resilience and begin to flourish. I also aim to cultivate acceptance and self-kindness as we can so often forget that we are enough and that we belong just as we are.
I have many years experience working with children both as a qualified teacher and a school learning mentor, supporting children to manage their emotions, improve their social skills and grow in confidence. I have play therapy qualifications with Place2be and have volunteered as a play therapist in a primary school across all age groups. I have a masters in health psychology.
I have always emphasised supporting others to promote positive mental health and create a more compassionate world and I also have a background in working for dementia and cancer charities. I bring maturity and life skills to my work with children, and also my passion to build a strong relationship, understand the perspective of a child and make our time together fun.
I bring an authentic understanding of how it feels as a child to have anxiety. I had anxiety growing up and I know how lonely this can feel, how difficult it can make ordinary things and how it can seep into family life. Mindfulness has supported me throughout my adult life and I only wish I had discovered it as a child. I wholeheartedly believe in every child and young person’s ability to discover their inner value and grow well-being through mindfulness.
I have an enhanced DBS, am fully insured and am a member of the International Mindfulness and Meditation Alliance. I undergo continual professional development and attend workshops and courses to ensure my professional skills are up-to-date.
