Happy Minds At School
Happy Kids (5 - 11 year olds) and Happy Minds (12 years +) offer fantastic programmes for both Primary and Secondary schools and academy's. We are passionate about tailoring our sessions specifically to the needs of the pupils in each of the groups that we’re working with. It’s important to us that the sessions have a positive and lasting impact. It’s therefore important that we get as much information as possible about the pupils that we’ll be working with and the emotional issues that they are living with and fears that they face.
We want to deliver a measurable programme that not only eases symptoms but also builds confidence, resilience and self-esteem, providing tools in their tool box for day to day living. We want to give them strategies to help with anxiety and panic attacks, social anxiety and social media pressures and also reduce school avoidance and manage exam stress.
How will we do this?
We will use a variety of therapeutic techniques including EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), NLP (neuro-linguistic programming), CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), Play, art, drama and music therapy, solution focus therapy, meditation and mindfulness and hypnosis. We will be keen to include 1:1 breakout time for the more extreme emotional issues within the sessions.
Key years that we feel would benefit from a course:
Year 3's - 6 Week Course Focusing on Awareness of Emotions, Prevention and Resilience
Year 6's - Short Course around Transition to Secondary School and SATs Support
Year 7 - 6 Week Course Focusing on Transition to Secondary School and Prevention and Resilience
Year 10 - Mock Exam Support and Exam Stress, Fears surrounding Failure etc.
Year 11 - GCSE Support, Exam Stress Management and Motivation
What is EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and how would it work in the classroom? What are the benefits?
