Training and support

At Mindfulness for learning we believe that building connections is a fundamental part of developing a positive approach to mental health and wellbeing. We value the input of your staff, children and parents and this is why we offer a personable approach to assist and guide you on your wellbeing journey.

Rather than providing you with a pre packaged scheme of work we tailor our training to suit your individual setting allowing for teacher autonomy, child led initiatives and targeted parent and carer support. 

All of our training and support packages are delivered in person and with a free consultation prior to our session start date, enabling us to build a clear understanding of how mental health and wellbeing will best fit in with the needs of your setting.

From supporting Senior Leaders in building a wellbeing action plan to helping teachers reflect on their own self care - Mindfulness for learning's range of training and support packages will provide you with the specific help you need.

We also believe that no setting should be unable to access this training and so we have three prices available

  • a reduced price for schools who have very little funding 

  • a standard price for those who can afford it

  • a higher price for settings that feel they can contribute that little bit more so that everyone has access to this support

To receive a full price list you can message us.

All courses can be made to measure. If you want a course delivered on a one-to-one basis or consolidated into fewer sessions please get in touch.

The Expression Room Development

Psychologist for Children

The Expression Room is an initiative created by our founder, Sophie Smith-Tong.

 

A room managed by a member of staff where children can go to if they feel they need to talk - in groups or individually. 

The journey begins with holding group sessions with the school council where decisions are made as to what your Expression Room may look like and what it will offer. 

Alongside the school council we will launch The Expression Room and introduce the way it will work to your setting. 

This development can take place over an agreed amount of time and will see you through from imagined ideas through to implementing and managing the running of The Expression Room.
