Relax Kids workshops give pupils valuable tools that help support their emotional health and wellbeing. Through relaxation, mindfulness and self-esteem exercises, we encourage pupils to see their strengths, be more resilient, develop their self-confidence and positivity, growth mindset and 'can do' attitude. Sessions also improve focus and attention therefore improves learning and attainment. Pupils learn about feelings and how manage difficult emotions. Sessions teach pupils to self-regulate which in turn reduces anger outbursts and low self-esteem.
Incorporating Relax Kids into your school will have a positive impact, which will be shown throughout school and community
