In our modern world of fast pace and instant actions we rarely have a chance to have a moment of stillness, a moment of peace and reflection. While we are racing to get more information, do we give ourselves time to deeply digest it, let it sink in, accept it with our heart?

Our childrens lives are similarly fast paced, where every minute is precious and taken up by an activity. Do you feel that your child might not have enough time to get to know themselves? what they are like? how they feel? what they dream about?

I help creating these peaceful opportunities for children to be with themselves, to explore their feelings, their thoughts and their dreams. I give guidance and teach children in a gentle and imaginative way to:

 

learn about their body and mind

become aware and regulate their emotions

relax their body and mind

enhance their confidence

develop a positive mindset

open their hearts in love and compassion to others

Services for Families

Guided Meditations

Enchanting meditations that help children relax, ease off their worries, unwind their minds and feel calmer. Each meditative story is accompanied by a simple breathing technique and a bespoke designed music. 

As you follow the guide for parents and a follow-up activity, you will find that it is not just a meditation – it is a wonderful toolkit to support your child’s emotional health and  their connection with you. 

1 to 1 sessions

These individual sessions aim to develop children’s mental health and well-being, in particular, self-esteem, resilience and positive mindset.

The sessions are based on my ‘Mindfulness and Mindset Coaching Programme’. It is based on the materials of scientific research in the field of neuroscience and theory of ‘growth mindset’. Each lesson is delivered in a fun and stimulating way gently introducing mindfulness practices.

Services for Schools

I deliver ‘Paws b’ mindfulness programme in primary schools in York. It is a world-leading curricula for classroom-based mindfulness, designed by the ‘Mindfulness in Schools Project’. Their materials are based on rigorous research in clinical psychology and neuroscience.

The programme promotes mental health and well-being, equips children with life skills of being resilient and regulating their thoughts and emotions.

Services for Charities

Educating and caring is something that I find very fulfilling. Helping someone on their path of development and healing is truly empowering, I learn a lot from these experiences myself. I work with various charities in supporting the mental health and well-being of children with additional needs and/or disabilities and adults.

What They Say

“It was the first meditation for my son and he really liked it! He was charmed by Lena’s voice and asked me few times how could it be so beautiful ! The story behind the meditation is just right for my boy as he believes in and looks for wonders of all kinds. By now we have already listened to another Lena’s meditation (‘Balloon’) which is a very nice practice too ! Many thanks, Lena!”

Olga, mum of Illia

“Новая медитация Алёны превзошла все ожидания 5-ти летнего сына. Он прослушал ее в кровати перед сном и зевая сказал, что это самая замечательная медитация. Сын смог пересказать всю историю и она очень хорошо расслабила его. Обычно он хочет, что бы я лежала с ним пока он не заснёт, но в последние месяцы он просит поставить ему любую медитацию Алёны и рад меня отпустить. После медитаций он практически всегда быстро засыпает. У Алёны очень спокойный и успокаивающийся голос, и сыну это нравится!”

Яна, мама Йони

“I have had the privilege to meet with Lena on many occasions to explore her depth of knowledge and understanding of young children and how to reach them. With her gentle demeanour and soothing voice she can quieten the mind and bring joy to their hearts. Highly recommended for busy parents and schools. Mindfulness is a great alternative to any form of exclusion.
