Supporting well-being in education
Well-being can be developed and supported in many ways. Mindfulness in education is becoming used more frequently as research and evidence show how the skills of mindfulness have a positive impact on a whole education establishment from students, teachers and the leadership team. Helping people to develop resilience and begin to thrive and flourish. Workshops and courses are usually in groups but can be 1:1 or small discrete group, which provides a rich source of learning for everyone and value for money for the school or College as it concentrates on skill building and not problem solving with individuals.

'Jon came in to our school to deliver a mindfulness assembly and his interesting and knowledgeable delivery hooked the students. The year 11 students were able to practice and take away easy mindfulness techniques they can use as they navigate this important year leading up to GCSE exams.'

'Jon worked at the college, over several weeks, to deliver a mindfulness programme to a group of students. The aim of the work was to reduce the anxiety that these students were experiencing in the lead up to exam season, and to encourage them to develop their own coping mechanisms and strategies using mindfulness techniques.
Many of the students who participated had a diagnosis of autism, and Jon used his skills and knowledge of mindfulness and working with young people with special educational needs to provide a programme which met their individual needs. At the end of the programme all students reported a decrease in their general anxiety, and many identified key mindfulness strategies which could be used in their day to day lives.'
