Hi, I am Lena, the creator of The Mindful Steps. I help children to improve their mental health and well-being with the tools of mindfulness and mindset. My approach is based on  science about the brain and engaging mindful practices.

I work with families and schools in York and around the globe. I deliver programmes and guided meditations that help children to develop their self-esteem, resilience and positive mindset. My experience as a school teacher, yoga instructor for children and a mindfulness teacher has shaped up my passion and engaging delivery methods.

Peaceful Discoveries is an album of meditations that have been design for children. The stories in this album have been individually crafted with bespoke music, enchanting settings and topics of mental and emotional health, such as: compassion, confidence, dealing with worries and more.

Available to purchase and download, these guided meditations are designed to help children:

  • Relax before sleep
  • Learn breathing techniques for calming and concentration
  • Manage difficult thoughts and emotions
  • Develop imagination and storytelling
  • Nurture kindness, love and compassion
  • Strengthen relationships with family members.

The album comes with a ‘Parent’s guide’ and ‘Calm challenges’ resources. They are designed to help parents create a more fulfilling and long-lasting experience for their child. You can download the album and enjoy it over and over again! Visit my website to hear the samples of all meditations. The album retails for £39.00, however we have an introductory offer of £27.00 till the end of August.

As well as my album of mediations I also offer one to one consultations for families. These 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. Please get in touch with me to discuss your individual requirements.
