Guided Meditations

These enchanting meditations help children to relax, ease off their worries and feel calmer. They are meditative stories created by me and accompanied by bespoke designed music, written by musician Iryna Shchadei. 

Choose from a range of themes and topics – these downloadable guided meditations can be enjoyed by families over and over again. 

1 to 1 Mentoring Sessions

I deliver individual sessions with children with the aim to enhance their mental health and well-being, in particular, self-esteem, resilience and positive mindset.

The sessions are based on my ‘Mindfulness and Mindset Mentoring Programme’. The programme helps children (5-15 years of age) with a range of difficulties: anxiety, stress, overwhelming negative thinking, sleep difficulty, anger issues, aggressive behaviour and others.

Each lesson is delivered in a fun and stimulating way gently introducing mindful practices. These regular mentoring sessions have an underpinning structure but are adjusted to the child’s specific needs, preferred learning style and age attributes.

The programme’s underpinning focus is to develop:

Knowledge about how the human brain works, specifically the processes of cognition, concentration and emotional regulation

Skill-set in being aware of and regulating thoughts and emotions

Mentoring Programme

The programme consists of 8 weekly sessions. They contain a wide range of fun practices: mindful eating, mindful movement, children’s meditations and ‘growth mindset’ challenges. A resource pack is provided with the programme.

The programme is tailored to individual child’s needs. So, please get in touch for a free half hour consultation so I can create a bespoke course that will support your child. The cost of the 8 week programme is £320.

Children nowadays have so many pressures. I can teach them how to connect with themselves and others, how to grow their confidence and resilience to make it easier to overcome life obstacles and fulfill their dreams!

What They Say

MindfulSteps_Stars_lilac

I’m a mother of 2 wonderful kids. My son, who is 9, is very active,  always has a busy mind and active life. He doesn’t know how to relax both his body and his mind. With his busy life he needs to recharge fully and have a good sleep. There are some weeks/days that it’s hard for him to fall asleep or sleep through the night. When we tried Lena’s meditations,  I couldn’t believe how much he was involved,  how much he imagined, and how relaxed he felt after that. We also follow/try a lot of other practices/advice from Lena’s page, and we already implement some yoga with stretching routines. My daughter, who is 6 y.o., is more relaxed, less stressed, very good sleeper, she also enjoys relaxing with her brother, and I hope we are building a good base for her mind awareness and  her confidence. It’s great to have this bank of information on mindfulness available any time.  We cannot wait for the meditation album to come out too!

Yelmira, mum of Timur & Arina

“We have nearly completed our course of mindfulness coaching with Lena and we are so thrilled with our son’s progress. Lena has helped build a greater understanding of emotions, confidence, self esteem and a more positive attitude, all things our son finds tricky. She has gone above and beyond to tailor the sessions and activities to suit our son’s interests in order to ensure he engages with them.

We have noticed a real difference in his attitude and it’s wonderful to see him using the skills he has learnt with Lena to help him navigate himself through situations he finds difficult. The support and guidance Lena has and continues to give us, is invaluable. Lena’s knowledge is extensive, her library of resources seems never ending, she is approachable and always on hand to help in any way she can, she has such a kind and caring nature. Lena is one of a kind and we are so very grateful to have her help to guide us through our journey.”
