Mindfulness in schools

As a qualified Mindfulness Teacher and Practitioner (Mindfulness UK and MISP .b) I am committed to helping young adults understand and handle their emotions more effectively.

I firmly believe that teaching life-skills to the younger generation is the responsibility of us all, so I am passionate and committed to helping them learn new ways of seeing and being.

What have young adults said about Mindfulness?

It has:

  • helped them handle strong emotions more effectively and allowed them to be less aggressive/confrontational
  • improved their focus, concentration and attention skills
  • given them strategies which have improved their peer and family relationships
  • improved their general attitude and well being

Mindfulness has helped in situations:

  • outside of school, i.e. family or social
  • specific to school, i.e. normal classroom performance, exams, sport etc

which impact the whole pupil learning experience i.e. general behaviour.

Mindfulness is a great fit as part of students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.

If there is an opportunity for me to work with your students and/or teachers, I would love to meet with you and further explore the programme that I could run in your school.

These are genuinely complex times and helping students stay more grounded, focused and calmer is a key support to their mental health, and who knows perhaps we can give teachers, students and parents skills which, in some cases, may genuinely change their lives.

The team sessions with Alistair have been brilliant, we are now a much closer team since we have been working with him and we now work as ONE team rather than individuals.

Tracy Parker, Director, Equinoxe

Alistair is extremely knowledgeable, personable and has a great deal to offer any organisation. I would highly recommend him.

Georgina Harrison, Development Programmes Manager, Leadership & Engagement Team, ASDA

Alistair brought a series of tools and shape to our deliberations that shaped not only what we are as a team, but what we represent in the market, and where we will set the business apart. The work is challenging whilst being fun, structured whilst being flexible, we will be regular customers.

Neil Ashworth, CEO, Collect +

The feedback we get from those that attend his sessions is truly fantastic and we have seen some remarkable changes in everyone that attends, which importantly not only benefits the individual but percolates through the business.

Neil Harvey, UK Employee Relations Manager, Tesco Distribution

Alistair has a rare skill and ability to entice the delegates to come up with the answer and teach themselves along the way. It was a fantastic two day session which everyone enjoyed and took a lot of new skills and ideas from to make them better leaders.

Jim Whitehead, General Manager, Tesco Distribution

Alistair has taken me through very simple to remember and simple to implement action plans and breathing exercises. He does away with the ‘mumbo jumbo’ and gets to the CAUSE of the matter. He then helped me to improve on my own behaviour / reactions.
