Then our Mindfulness for Students program may be just what you are looking for.
Heavy workloads, social pressure, exam anxiety – and perhaps personal issues from outside of school – can combine to make it hard going for even the most capable of students.
Mindfulness practice has become increasingly popular in schools as it can be a powerful and effective tool to help students manage stress, boost academic performance and enhance overall levels of wellbeing.
