“Children really enjoyed the session that they were asking if Karen was coming back in to deliver another session. It also made children more aware of their own emotions and others!”

Blackwood Primary School, South Lanarkshire

“I thought it was very good putting animals to the emotions and how the brain works as it is very visual and something the class teacher could implement and give the children a deeper understanding of how the emotion looks and how to control emotions.”

“The result is that pupils are now smiling who before were very reserved and pupils opening up more about how they feel!”

“Pupils are now able to talk about how they are feeling. Better understanding of what emotions they go through when their bodies go into flight or fight mode and  proven strategies to help control those emotions better.”

“The staff training was highly significant in my own development and
practice which I have been able to take forward with the children and personally. Using simple
techniques to calm our minds including breathing around our fingers, breathing in the flowers and
blowing out the candles as well feathers, closing eyes and listening has been very effective and easy
to do with the children in between transitions and at the end of the day.”

“We would highly recommend Karen and Mind Marvels for other early years establishments looking to
implement yoga and mindfulness into daily sessions. Karen uses her calming, soft and patient approach
to allow children to freely join in with the sessions even those who are reluctant at the start are
engaging by the end. The resources including the animals, breathing ball, stars, stones, feeling fans,
story massage ideas are fantastic and really help the children visualise what they are learning about
their minds to help them feel calm.”

Karen helps children learn practical ways of identifying, understanding and coping with feelings and challenges…a terrific way to support good mental health.”

“Karen captured the attention of forty 3-5 year olds which allowed them to learn different emotions, breathing techniques, massage and affirmations. The children loved the whole experience, and feedback was very positive from staff. Highly recommend Karen from Mind Marvels.”

“My 3 year old son has one to one sessions and I would definitely recommend. He has surprised me by how much he has engaged with some of the activities such as relaxing and breathing and really seems to have taken the sessions on board. We will definitely continue with the sessions.”

“It’s early days for us but I cannot recommend Mind Marvels enough. My 4-year-old is struggling with his emotions after a family bereavement. Karen is the only person who can get him to talk about how he feels/what emotions are. She also gives us tips of things to do together!”
