Mindfulness for Teenagers and Young Adults
We offer a range of Mindfulness Courses and Workshops which aim to improve the physical, emotional and psychological wellbeing of young people through offering the benefits of mindfulness and meditation programmes and activities.
The research of pre and post course evaluations conducted in an educational setting to measure wellbeing scores have shown positive outcomes, with a significant reduction in low wellbeing and significant increases in overall medium and high wellbeing scores.
MBLC-YA - Mindfulness Based Living Course for Young Adults consists of eight sessions, delivered once a week in a local setting or on site with each session lasting one hour in duration. The course introduces the concepts of mindfulness and self-compassion to develop these qualities in students to help with anxiety, stress, depression, increase concentration and exam performance, improve sleep, deal with difficult emotions and relationships and improve overall health and wellbeing.
MBLC-YA EDUCATIONAL SETTING - We deliver this course in educational environments and run local community courses for young people referred by CAMHS and local services. We also accept referrals from third sector organisations, parents and young adults. The course is taught through classroom-based mindfulness practices and activities designed especially for this age group.
