Mindfulness Group for Children

Does your child struggle with anxiety or stress? Would you like to support them in learning skills to enhance their wellbeing?

The Psychology Centre is offering Pause Breathe Smile (PBS) a programme for children (between 7-10 years who struggle with stress and anxiety) and their parents to develop skills of mindfulness. 

PBS is an evidence-based programme, developed by the Mental Health Foundation and is found to improved focus and attention, enhance self-awareness and reduce stress.

The group will run for 8 weeks from Wednesday 20 February 4 – 5pm, at UC’s Psychology Centre.

The programme requires both child and parent/ caregiver to attend and learn together. The total cost of the program is $160.
