Growing Gurus, wellbing and relaxation for children
Latest news at the Pioneering Care Partnership
THE PIONEERING Care Partnership (PCP) has teamed up with Made of Star’s Children’s wellbeing coach Anita Dunseith to deliver ‘Growing Gurus’ weekly from Tuesday 14 January 2020, 5.15-6.15pm for £4.00 per session. Aimed at supporting children aged 5-11 years old this course supports children to learn tools to enable them to self-soothe, relax and overcome stress and anxiety. Giving children lifelong skills that will support their wellbeing and help them maintain a positive outlook in times of difficulty throughout their life.
This new course will run every week, enabling families to attend around their busy schedules and to ‘dip in and out’ at any time.
A parent said, “My six year old attended the Growing Gurus course, he struggled with his attention and focus and Anita was so completely patient with him. Her teaching has really stuck with him and he has learned so many coping and calming techniques now that he is using them at home and school. The content was really inspiring and I loved the positive attitude that clung to him after each session; having a way of teaching children this kind of confidence and affirmation is invaluable”
The course tutor Anita said “Teaching the importance of wellbeing to children at an early can improve mental healthiness in later life. It can also lead to greater engagement and improvement in concentration as well as building a resilience to enable children to cope with the challenges that they may face. The activities we coach can be done at home and school, the Growing Gurus wellbeing toolkit includes breathing techniques, finger holds, positive statements, gentle exercise and visualisations which require no equipment or cost. The best bit about the tool kit is that we carry it with us all the time, without even realising it!”
