Importance of Mental Health


Would you love your child / children to have improved concentration, listening skills, attention span, confidence and self-esteem?

CalmChildren teaches children how to build confidence and self-esteem, learning tools and techniques that will set them up for life.

Those attending the classes will learn skills that they can use every day to:

     •     Develop their self confidence

     •     Manage their moods and emotions

     •     Manage stress and anxiety

     •     Increase their concentration

     •     Relax and improve their sleep

     •     Self soothe

CalmChildren delivers a bespoke relaxkids program which teaches relaxation techniques to help children recognise their strengths and manage their emotional journey through life.  The relaxation techniques provide a toolbox of transferable skills which can be used in later life. If children can learn to be calm under pressure at a young age, this equips them well to cope in their adult life.
