I am an accredited Creative Mindfulness Teacher based near Cork city. At present, I am teaching children and teenagers on a one too one basis in child’s own home. I teach an eight week mindfulness course and throughout this course the child or teenager will be introduced to mindfulness. They will learn how to relax and calm their “busy minds”, through a better understanding of their thoughts and feelings and they will learn how to be kinder to themselves and others through meditation, breathing techniques, art, journaling, and visualisations. By the end of this course each child/teenager will have built their own personal “toolkit” which will help them in their everyday lives.

I see Mindfulness as a preventative and restorative resource to support mental  wellbeing and in the development of resilience in times of struggle whether mental, physical or emotional. I love to connect with young people and help them find their inner sanctuary and educate them in emotional wellbeing and how neuroplasticity is their super power, this is done through play, art, craft, story telling and fun activities. In my classes Children develop their emotional vocabulary and learn ways to regulate emotions and healthy ways to express themselves in a safe inclusive environment. They also develop selfcompassion and compassion for others. We have lots of laughs on the journey and children blossom in confidence as they learn and develop tools to support them for life.

Certified Creative Mindfulness Practitioner  and Teacher

Co. Louth (IE)

Email: olivehouston@hotmail.com

My goal and passion is to share the gift of mindfulness and self-compassion with children from an early age to help them develop self-care tools and cultivate kindness for themselves and others. My background is in Nursing and Special Needs Assistance in Primary schools. I like to create a space where children feel safe, contented and free to relax. Classes involve helping children learn basic mindfulness/self-care techniques which they can use to calm and relax their busy minds (through stories, discussion, meditations, art and craft activities etc.). Over the course of the programme, children begin to develop an understanding of their thoughts and feelings, thus growing emotional intelligence. With time and practice, they can begin to recognise how emotions “feel” and self-regulate accordingly. This is especially helpful for children who struggle with managing difficult emotions/struggle with worries/anxiety/fears. I work with schools, wellbeing centres, in community spaces and afterschool clubs offering six or eight-week programmes based on the principles of the Creative Mindfulness Kids Method, adapting classes to suit each individual’s needs.

I started working with children over twenty years ago, teaching dance and drama. For several years I taught dance as part of the P.E. curriculum in national schools and ran courses for principals and teachers. After my son was born, I decided to focus on bringing movement and storytelling to toddlers and pre-schoolers at parent and toddler groups and play cafés. Pre Covid, I achieved a post graduate diploma in Cultural Event Management and ran a play café and children and family events. I’ve been practicing mindfulness and meditation for several years myself and after completing a well being in schools course with the Irish Mindfulness Academy I went on to do the Creative Mindfulness course. Teaching children about mindfulness and meditation through arts and crafts is such a great idea and the children really enjoy it. It is so important now more than ever that we give children the tools to manage their mental health. I am currently working with children aged 5-12 in North Dublin through Zoom classes with craft materials posted to the children each week.

I am qualified Accredited Children's Creative Mindfulness Practitioner. My aim is to promote children's positive mental health and wellbeing. Mindfulness enables children to understand all of their feelings and therefore be kinder to themselves & others by using fun and creative mindfulness methods. I am a mum to two boys and I am aware of how difficult it can be for children growing in this everchanging world. I worked previously as a children’s nurse for 15 years and had a tough decision to leave my job to care for my son which is when I found my love for mindfulness. I feel very strongly that children should be able to accept their feelings, understand them (both good and bad feelings) and who they are, and by using mindfulness techniques, I aim to give children the internal tools to help them deal with difficult situations they may encounter in everyday life. I feel so privileged to be able to share my knowledge with children, currently I have had the honour of working with children age 4-12 years in schools, youth clubs and group sessions.

Mindfulness is awareness that arises through paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally.” Jon Kabat-Zinn
Mindfulness aims to help you:
  • become more self-aware
  • feel calmer and less stressed
  • feel more able to choose how to respond to your thoughts and feelings.
  • cope with difficult or unhelpful thoughts
  • be kinder towards yourself.

Mindfulness supports children to develop skills to manage stressful situations, to focus and improve attention, builds resilience, improves emotional regulation and emotional literacy and builds positive mental health and wellbeing.
The benefits of mindfulness are becoming more and more well known. I believe that teaching these skills to children will help their mental health and wellbeing and help children grow to be more compassionate to others and themselves as well as having strategies to combat whatever life throws at them- which is essential in the world we live in as so many children are struggling with their feelings, emotions and life generally.
This has grown to become a passion of mine over the last few years- particularly due to the pandemic and the increase in mental health and wellbeing issues being identified in children and young people. Helping children to build a tool kit to cope is a driving force within me. I want to make a difference.
I have qualified as an IMMA certified Creative Mindfulness Practitoner meaning I am able to teach mindfulness to groups of children age 4-11. I am also trained to deliver the Mindful Heart Curriculum developed by my amazing mentor Louise Shanagher.
As well as this I am a qualified primary school teacher, dbs checked and am currently completing my Msc Mental Health and Wellbeing in Education, where I have focused predominantly on ADHD and SEND.
Together we can make a difference in the lives of children.
Feel free to contact me if you wish to discuss any questions you may have, if you want any specific resources or if you are interested in having me facilitate a mindfulness workshop or a scheme of lessons for a group of children.
All enquires will be answered quickly .

Hello, my name is Louise and I am a mindfulness and yoga teacher. I provide a bespoke service to support anxiety in children (with yoga and mindfulness) and young teens (with mindfulness).  I have trained in the Creative Mindfulness for Kids method with Louise Shanagher and the Connected Kids method with Lorraine Murray. I am also a registered children's yoga teacher. I use evidence-based practices to empower children and teens to understand their anxiety, build resilience and begin to flourish.  I also aim to cultivate self-kindness as we can so often forget that we are enough and that we belong just as we are. I have worked with children for many years as a qualified teacher, a school welfare mentor, and as a teaching assistant. I also have play therapy qualifications and a masters in Health Psychology. I had anxiety growing up and I know how lonely this can feel, how difficult it can make ordinary things and how it can seep into family life. Mindfulness has supported me throughout my adult life and I wish I had discovered it as a child. I wholeheartedly believe in every child and young person's ability to discover their inner value and grow well-being through mindfulness. I have an enhanced DBS, am fully insured and am a member of the International Mindfulness and Meditation Alliance. I also undergo continual professional development.
