It is a great privilege to be part of the movement of spreading Mindfulness in schools. Mindfulness is an essential life skill which helps to build the resilience essential for children of the 21st century.
What I offer to schools
I am trained in a Mindfulness curriculum called 'dot-be' which stands for Pause and Breathe. 'Dot-be' was devised by the Mindfulness in schools Project and it is at the heart of MYRIAD - the largest ever study into the impacts of mindfulness on adolescence.

The 'dot be' for students is a 10 week programme designed to be delivered in the classroom, whilst the 'dot be' Foundations is a 8 week programme aimed at staff which mirrors some of the content of the student curriculum, helping to develop a shared language in the school. I also work one to one with pupils with difficulties, ranging from anxiety, learning difficulties to Aspergers and Autism. I can help senior management with strategies to introduce Mindfulness gradually and make it sustainable. Click here to read more about my work in schools.
