Welcome to the Chilled Out Child – the art of being…
My aim is to help adults, to help children, live in a more mindful way by coaching adults in the science of mindfulness, the art of relaxation and anxiety management and the development of positive psychology and dissolving of limiting beliefs with the use of emotional freedom tapping and meridian psychotherapy.
Developing the skills required to enjoy more calm, clarity and connection with those around you will be one of the most useful, inspiring and life changing moments in your life. By mastering these skills yourself you will easily be able to share them with children in your home and working life.
These skills can be acquired through participation in online short courses (soon to be launched on Udemy) and the 100 hour mentored mindfulness facilitator training programme which is run a few times a year.
I also work with prenatal women preparing for motherhood, by helping them shift unhelpful fears and thoughts around the delivery of their baby and their forthcoming role as a mother.
I originally focused on teaching yoga and mindfulness to children at schools and yoga studios and eventually wrote and delivered the Chilled Out Child meditation and mindfulness facilitator training programme, which focuses on teaching adults how to share mindfulness with children. After a few years of teaching and running the course, I realised that to help children with their wellbeing, we also need to help parents and the adults who work with children to manage their stress levels and reduce their anxiety.
I believe that for children to be happy and stress free, it helps if the adults in their life can also learn how to manage their stress and are able to be calm, show compassion and self-regulate emotions during moments of pressure. Children learn by example and therefore if their parents are happy, resilient and positive influencers, modelling calm, compassionate and patient behaviours, the whole family is more likely to become one of mindful collaboration.
I have written and developed courses for individuals who wish to learn more about the benefits of mindfulness and how to share meditation and mindfulness activities effectively and age appropriately with children, to help them cope with every day pressure.
Wellbeing courses and facilitator training for individuals include:
The 100 hour Chilled Out Child meditation and mindfulness facilitator programme

Never one to shy away from exciting projects, I enjoyed the challenge of writing and teaching the Chilled Out Child meditation and mindfulness facilitator training programme, which has evolved year on year. This programme has been acknowledged as offering a high standard of course materials, tuition and mentoring and received accreditation from Yoga Alliance International.
The Chilled Out Child meditation and mindfulness facilitator training programme is a comprehensive twelve module mentored training programmme covering different aspects of meditation and how to share meditation and mindfulness with children and teenagers. Starting from June 2018, the programme will run over six months; four months working through the modules and two months to complete all homework and the final project.
This training is ideal for individuals who may wish to set up a mindfulness programme within their existing professional workplace setting, for example nursery, primary and secondary schools or set up independent classes in the community.
The programme is aimed at adults who wish to develop their own meditation practice and learn how to share anxiety management techniques, meditation and the art of being mindful in daily life with children and teens.
