Child & Family yoga play provides amazing benefits for children’s overall well-being. It enhances physical fitness, improves flexibility, strength, and coordination, while also promoting relaxation techniques for stress and anxiety management. This leads to emotional regulation and increased resilience.

Yoga Play helps improve concentration and attention span, which is valuable for concentration and engagement. This increased focus contributes to boosted self-esteem as children achieve milestones in their practice. Yoga can also lead to better sleep quality when practiced before bedtime.

Yoga Play promotes body awareness and healthy habits, fosters social skills through group classes, and nurtures creativity and imaginative thinking through storytelling and play. Moreover, kids learn conflict resolution, anger management, and effective coping mechanisms through yoga. Childrens yoga offers a comprehensive approach to child development, encompassing physical health, emotional intelligence, mental well-being, social skills, and valuable life skills.

Unleash your child’s imagination through mindful art, an engaging and enriching experience that combines creativity with mindfulness techniques. This practice encourages children and young people to express themselves artistically while learning to be fully present in the moment.

As children and young people engage in mindful art activities, they discover the joy of exploring colours, shapes, and textures, fostering a deep connection with their inner selves. Through guided exercises, they develop an awareness of their thoughts and emotions, learning to manage stress and anxiety in a positive way.

Mindful art for children and young people is a platform for self-discovery and self-expression. It enhances concentration, self-esteem, and emotional intelligence, all while allowing kids to create beautiful and meaningful artwork. This process not only strengthens their artistic skills but also builds essential life skills.

Counselling

Let us guide you through your counselling journey with one-on-one therapeutic support. Firefly Wellbeing specializes in positive parenting, childhood development, relationship counselling, addiction support and trauma counselling. 

Counselling sessions can be delivered via zoom, telephone, or in-person by negotiation at a suitable location. Firefly Wellbeing Counselling is ideally suited for anyone aged over 10 years (including adults) but referrals are based off initial assessment & screening to ensure suitability for our service. All enquiries are welcome. 

Please note: Parental/guardian consent is required for all children aged under 18 years for counselling services. Parental/guardian participation may be required in session depending on intake information obtained. Firefly Wellbeing retains the right to refuse service if they believe another service is best placed to meet the client’s needs.

The practice framework for counselling with Firefly Wellbeing is Person-Centred Practice. This framework emphasizes the client’s autonomy, self-determination, and overall wellbeing. We will work collaboratively with you to establish goals, address concerns, and promote a supportive and empathetic therapeutic relationship.

Counselling offers a range of valuable benefits for individuals seeking support and personal growth. Through counselling, individuals can explore and express their emotions in a safe environment, enhance communication skills, promote healthier relationships, and gain insights into thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. Decision-making becomes more informed, conflicts are resolved constructively, and individuals gain support in managing a range of mental health condition. Ultimately, counselling empowers individuals to take control of their lives, navigate life transitions, and build self-esteem, fostering positive changes and wellbeing.

Child friendly Counselling: Being a parent/carer can be challenging, especially juggling care arrangements so we can attend important appointments. Firefly Wellbeing is happy to work with you to deliver child-friendly counselling options. Child Friendly Sessions are designed for parents/carers who may need to attend counselling with their child/children present. The session is for the parent/carer but children may need to attend the session due to caring arrangements.  Together we can explore a location which is suitable for counselling but can also provide a safe space for your children. Taking into consideration privacy standards and the nature of the conversation, we can explore options which best suit you and your family’s needs while still providing a quality service. Firefly Wellbeing is committed to a family-inclusive approach to counselling…

Please note: As per our service agreement for counselling clients, Firefly Wellbeing counselling does not provide emergency care, crisis response or diagnostic services. Additional costs may be incurred where a child-friendly space must be hired by Firefly Wellbeing. The responsibility of any child attending a counselling session remains the legal responsibility of the parent/carer. Please refer to the counselling service agreement for more information.
