It’s guest blog time!
This month’s blog comes from my colleague and friend, Lisa Bedlow, who I met over 10 years ago when I was working for the school improvement team at a local authority. Since leaving her role as an executive head teacher, Lisa has set up a social enterprise called Gabriels. Here’s more about it:
"Gabriels Wellbeing and Education supports children and families with balancing emotions, creating self-love, success and happiness using nature to encourage children to be self-confident, sociable, interactive and not bound by technology. We have a range of wellbeing sessions from toddlers to teenagers. We have a highly successful programme offering one-to-one support for a range of conditions from anxiety, eating disorders, depression, autism, ADHD and others.
As a former headteacher, I am so passionate about helping children to release any limiting beliefs so that they can shine and achieve in whatever way they choose.
One of my most powerful techniques to share with children is the power of deep belly breathing. When we are anxious, we tend to breathe shallowly, which is a throwback to our caveman roots, preparing for fight or flight. However, we are not in danger: we just sense that we are, so to breathe slowly and deeply into the tummy for two minutes reassures the body that all is calm and well. It truly is our very own super power. As a qualified and advanced Pranic healer, I have many more strategies that I share when treating clients."
