The Application of Imagination
The Application of Imagination for Children!
Starts Tuesday 15th January for 5 weeks
Using a combination of techniques I help your child to use the practical application of their own imagination to cope with the stresses and challenges in their lives.
Children's unconscious minds are constantly absorbing information and creating patterns of reaction. By gently introducing ways of using imagination in a practical way, they can create personal strategies for relieving stress, dealing with setbacks and generally building mental resilience. I have many years of experience working with children and their imaginations and never cease to be amazed by how quickly they not only grasp new concepts, but run with them and make them their own.
My groups are very gentle, but your child will not be sitting for an hour in the lotus position chanting mantras! There is an element of meditation which is delivered in a very practical way, and there is a lot of pretending and 'acting as if'. We will touch on habit change, coping with 'worm days' (if you don't know what they are then ask me!), resilience building and self-confidence but also exploring our imaginations for the sake of pure fun. Whilst there is a potentially therapeutic element to the classes, they are suitable for anyone*.
I ask that children are booked for a 5 week 'course' as it is important for them and me to get to know how each individual works within a group - new people coming in half-way through may be disruptive for some children. Groups are limited to 10 and take place at The Bagnall Centre, 71-79 Waterside, Chesham HP5 1PE
