Relaxation Group

The School Nursing service has supported our Learning Mentor, Mrs Rouse, to launch two relaxation groups in school. The children explore ways to help themselves when they don't feel quite right. In the session we practise breathing, visualisation and other relaxation techniques in a quiet, calm environment.

Feedback about Relaxation Group

At the end of the seven sessions we asked the children whether they had enjoyed coming to the Relaxation Group the children's responses were really positive. "I felt a bit silly doing it at first but it has been fun to do", "I have learnt how to relax" said one child, another shared that "I can just breathe and stay clam".

 

We hoped that the children would be able to use the things they had been practicing at home as well as at school and we asked them about that. "It helps me calm down when I am upset and relax to go to sleep", "I tell myself a story to trick my brain so I can get to sleep".

 

"This club is awesome!"
