"Hi, my name is Lucy and my passion to teach Relax kids magical classes is due to a combination of my past experiences and knowledge. I have fourteen years experience within childcare and educational settings. In which time I have recognised extreme changes in the demands on our children and the impact this is having on their emotional well-being. My childhood was spent giving my all to dance and drama classes, something which built my self-esteem and confidence. I have personally studied mindfulness for the past four years and have also used Relax kids techniques with my own children, experiencing the benefits as a parent first hand. I have a first class degree in Psychology, equipping me with vast amounts of knowledge in relation to causes, symptoms and treatments of mental health. As parents we hear a lot about our children's physical health and are constantly signing up to classes which encourage this. However, an area of our children's development we often forget about enhancing is their mental health. I am excited to start changing the lives of our next generation, and through these classes create calm, confident children in the chaotic times we live in!"

This reflects beautifully the chapter Im reading currently. How to seperate our Anger - expression/actions from our emotions, take a moment of calm before reacting in a way you may regret, especially when we are interacting with our children.

Martial Arts training offers many benefits for children with special needs because of the inherit structure and discipline the arts bring to a child’s daily life.  Because this type of training is an “art” not a “sport”, each student competes against themselves to make personal improvements instead of being graded against an opponent.  This helps the individual gain confidence for personal achievements.  Repetition helps create familiarity and for that reason children who are on the autism spectrum tend to do very well in these classes.  Adding martial arts training to children who receive weekly therapy tent to reach there goals outside of the martial arts classes faster.

New figures released this month from Childline show a 14% rise (2017/18) in children reaching out for help with feelings of loneliness and isolation as they struggle with the pressures of growing up in today's society - girls received almost 80% of Childline's sessions, sharing concerns about social media use and how comparing themselves to others online made them feel increasingly isolated.

When going through a divorce, children can be hugely affected and will look to both parents to be a role model. As long as one parent focuses on the mental wellbeing, I’m a big believer that the children will be minimally affected. If handled correctly, it can even be seen as a way of increasing your child’s resilience. This equips them for later on in life. #divorcecoach #divorcecoaching #singlemum #childrenofdivorce #childrensmentalhealth #breakupquotes #breakups #splittingup #childrenof_instagram #wellnesswednesday #wednesdaywisdom

Mental health in children is massively important, how they feel as children affects their whole lives and determines their future. Kids are little sponges and small things we don’t think twice about affects them massively.

How we view a child and their behaviour has a huge impact. So often we assume we know the answer to ‘why?’, it’s human nature.

Actively challenging our own thoughts helps us to meet children where they actually are and not where WE think they are. 
Meeting anyone at their truth is a good place to start isn’t it 👍🏼🌈 #emotionalwellbeing #emotionaldevelopment #emotionalliteracy #behaviour #childrensmentalhealth #bridgethegap #teachersofinstagram #traumainformed #schoollife #mumlife #mumblogger #dadlife #dadblogger #familylife #familyblogger #parenthood #parentingwin #acupofmotherhood #motherhoodrising #motherhoodintheraw

Unattended mental issues during childhood can grow into serious disorders in adulthood. #GrowingHealthyMinds is an endeavour to bust the myths surrounding mental health and provide the support our children need.
#RyanInternationalSchool #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #childrensmentalhealth #healthyminds #goodhealth
Often we need someone to reflect back what we know and feel to be true but have not been able to put into words. Someone to read us and reflect back what they see. 
This would have to be the favourite part of my work...to be able to help others see their best growth when life is sending challenging messages. 
The other day I was lucky enough to support this beautiful woman in my clinic doing what I love and yesterday she read me with her beautiful energy as a clear Channel of love. If you need a forecast about your direction in business or life, @clairvoyant_mystic_beauty is the Oracle for the task! ♥️

I have thought long and hard about posting this or anything too personal but the last few days have been horrific and I really feel that if we don’t talk about it, then we are not facing it. My son is 10. My son is bright, articulate, funny, loving and kind. My son is suicidal.  My beautiful bright boy faces demons in his head Every. Single. Day.  Tonight I have had to lock doors and hide keys, hide all knives and physically have him in bed with me so I can make sure he doesn’t harm himself. He said that if I really loved him I would let him go so that he doesn’t have to suffer anymore. I can’t tell you what that does to you as a parent. We have tried therapists, specialist teachers, natural remedies and reiki...I have BEGGED CAMHS and social care for help and been fobbed off god knows how many times by being told I should attend autism parent workshops. I have paid thousands of pounds to see experts and psychiatrists privately and still we are passed from pillar to post. I am desperate...not for myself but for the life of my son and for his MENTAL WELLBEING. Watching him suffer is killing me. Please everybody, I beg you, spread the word, our children are being failed and it’s a very real problem. We are living proof. #children #childrensmentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #pda #pathalogicaldemandavoidance #autism #autismawareness #suicideprevention #suicideboys #suicidegirls #kidsneedhelp #adhd #camhs #psychology #therapy #spreadtheword #help #support #awareness #talkaboutmentalhealth #nhs #asd #suicide

Whether it's alone or as a family, take some time after work/school to be mindful and meditate- it just may make tomorrow a better day! http://ow.ly/MXly30kZGOq - #endthestigma  #breakthestigma  #stigmafighter  #mentalhealthmatters  #dailymentalhealthboost  #youthmentalhealth  #heresforyou  #mentalhealth  #mentalhealthawareness  #stopthestigma  #mentalwellness  #health  #life  #afsfoundation  #childrensmentalhealth  #kidscantwait

I'm just starting out as an author and writer of wellbeing articles for children... and on a budget, so I enlisted help from my young daughter and her friend for my website "photo shoot" - this one didn't make it on to the website but it is my favourite!  Maybe not the most flattering but the photo captures the fun we had x

I am so proud of you Brooke Madison .... you are surprising me every day 💜 5 weeks into her CBT therapy .... she has conquered some massive fears. To other people they may not seem like big mile stones , but this little girl will see fear and feel worried and every day she is learning how to deal with those emotions . She has learnt to ride her bike, she has enrolled in 2 new dance classes and has had her first swimming, she is trying new things, she is stepping out of her comfort zone and starting to believe in herself. She is listening to firework noises, she has blown out her own birthday candles and she is building herself up to try and hold a sparkler. A huge difference from the beginning of the year. One trigger can cause a massive life change and she is coping so well with these tests. I will love her no matter what.  All I can do is help and encourage her to be the best version of herself and give her the best life to live 💜 #MentalHealth #ChildrensMentalHealth #CBT #Anxiety #BeKind #OneStep #Proud #TimeToTalk #UnderstandingMyGirl #ItsReal

Purple is known as a relaxing and soothing colour and the flower represents growth and blooming to our full potential but there is still more to my logo than my love of purple flowers. 🌱
The petals represent areas I think are necessary for our emotional health. 🌱
Footprints for physical factors such as healthy nutrition and physical activity. A phone for digital wellbeing and safety on social media, without too many comparisons to what others present. People for social support, friends and family. The heart for emotional or spiritual input, meditation, activities we can be fully engrossed in, and watching our thoughts. A calendar for structure and activities that are enjoyable and that make us “feel good”  or that we’ve achieved something. 🌱
The bigger petals represent areas people may need more help with, when difficulties impact on day to day life and functioning, crossing the line from difficulties to potential disorders. 🌱
A jigsaw for diagnosis, paper for explanation and understanding and finally a prescription pad for treatment, although that isn’t always medication. 🌱

"It is we who teach our children how to love or not love by the extent to which we love or don't love ourselves." - Shefali Tsabary, PhD.
.
For me, this can be one of the hardest lessons, one that I have to keep learning and relearning. We get so busy providing and competing and chasing....and for what? Everytime we let ourselves get run down and stressed out and overtired and at our wits end...we're showing our kids how to do the same.
.
I really want to work on showing them that my definition of success doesn't include a certain amount of money in the bank or a specific title, but yet is a level of comfort I have with WHO and WHAT I am. If we don't learn to show ourselves some love and to figure out what leads us to peace, how on earth can we expect our children to know how?

This sack, although not huge, speaks volumes! I turned to mindfulness after having George. I was struggling with anxiety which I had never had before and I needed something. I'm an RE teacher and found that my inner hippy with its mediation, yoga and positive vibes was not quite hitting the spot. Once I started I was hooked! I used it more with my kids in school and could see the positive impact it was having with them. Today our children have an amazing world with its technology and open mindedness but these also bring problems. Pressure, stress, anxiety - no child should ever feel worthless. I became a relax kids coach and started making my activity sacks because I'm passionate about the development, mental health and wellbeing of our children. .

Read Stories, Build Empathy... When we read fiction our brains are tricked into thinking we're genuinely part of the story. A Cambridge University study (Nikolajeva) found that “reading fiction provides an excellent training for young people in developing and practising empathy and understanding of how other people feel and think”

Daisy the Hedgehog is a story about being different, which looks at issues such as sadness and feeling lonely, and is an opportunity to teach young children positive values about tolerance and acceptance.

Are you a Dandelion or an Orchid?
In Sweden there is a phrase that describes kids who have the ability to survive, maybe even thrive, no matter what life throws at them.  They are called "Dandelion Children" because they are resilient and get on with the job of growing whatever their circumstances...

Mirror, Mirror... Every relationship is a mirror.  We subconsciously imitate the behaviour of those around us, especially when we are in the company of those we trust such as close friends or family.

Rosie and Sid are brother and sister from the same litter, they’ve definitely mastered the art of mirroring behaviour!
