Empowering programmes for the Education Sector
Are your staff and students mentally prepared for the academic demands of the new qualifications?
Have you considered what the summer term would look like if you were able to provide staff and students with scientifically proven techniques to help them to learn more effectively, think more clearly, perform better, feel calmer, happier and less anxious?
Stress amongst teachers and students in the UK is at an all-time high and staff absenteeism, due to stress related illnesses, is costing the country billions of pounds every year. The result of this stress epidemic could be depriving our young people of the best possible start in life.
It’s not all doom and gloom though! The latest scientific research proves that practising mindfulness improves attention, reaction time, memory and creativity. It also develops stamina and resilience. Neuroscientists have shown that by practicing mindfulness for a period of just six-weeks can change your brain, leaving it healthier and able to protect you from toxic stress.
Mindfulness is a form of mental training, with regular practice you can build your mindfulness muscle, as you develop this muscle you become more aware and more focused in all aspects of your life.
Our bespoke Mindfulness and Compassion six-week programme (6 x 1hr sessions) is tailored to alleviate stress, reduce fatigue and increase overall well-being. It will teach participants to identify their causes of stress and permanently alter the way they handle potential stressful situations in the future. Mindfulness will enable participants to be reflective not reactive.
Mindfulness courses will equip your staff and students with the tools for life long well-being.
