Backed by scientific research

Harnessing the latest scientific studies, our online tuition programmes combine my experience as an outstanding educator with mindful well-being techniques. Here are just some of the positive benefits of mindfulness coaching:

Better Focus & Attention27

Less anxiety26

Better Communication29

More confidence32

Leading to improved grades and happier, healthier children!

Studies of students practicing mindful awareness exercises have shown:

  • Higher levels of emotional control, optimism and empathy than students who were not instructed in mindfulness span16
  • Reduced behavior problems and aggression among students17
  • Improvement with metacognition and their ability to maintain attention. These students also showed improvements in memory, planning, and organization18
  • Increased impulse control19

Ways to practise mindfulness

Formal Mindfulness encourages you to take time within your day to become present. This usually will have you close your eyes as you focus your attention on your breath or the sensations in your body.

Informal Mindfulness is when you (prioritise) bringing your full, non-judgmental attention to an activity you’re doing. This could be walking, playing, washing the dishes, or listening to a friend.
