Looking after the wellbeing and mental health of children from an early age can help build resilience, boost confidence and help them learn how to manage anxiety and overwhelm.
Positive exercises and techniques from an early age through to teenage years and beyond can greatly reduce pressure at home, school, college and university.
Being in the moment and putting a smile back on their face again while they begin to feel calmer and happier from the inside out can promote positive outcomes at home and at school. This typically leads to happier children, teenagers and adults.
Here are some of the mindful exercises we focus on:
Remembering happy times and focusing on the moment can also help pupils to manage any worry or anxiety they may be feeling.
Having these tools from an early age can give them a more positive outlook and help young people manage challenging times throughout their life.
Children and teenagers wellbeing is a key to their progress. Learning these positive techniques and how to be in the moment can take off so much pressure. It can put the smile back on their face again while they begin to feel calmer and happier from the inside out.
There may be different reasons associated with a child's anxiety that may not necessarily relate to exam time. It could be to do with their confidence throughout the year at home and in class. By giving them mindful exercises and talking through how to manage and change their thought patterns can have a very positive effect.
When children from an early age through to their teens feel they need help and want to talk these sessions are a way to give them the opportunity to open up and feel comfortable to talk.
Exams can create considerable pressure and anxiety among pupils. This can cause profound worries about achieving desired grades, competition within peer groups and huge amounts of anxiety and worry for the whole family.
This can have a massive impact on the wellbeing, energy levels and self-esteem of pupils.
Mind Medication gives pupils the tools and techniques to help them manage and overcome these pressures before and during the exam period.
Pupils will obtain more energy and self-confidence. They'll feel more relaxed, positive and happy - enabling them to better manage the challenges of the exam period.
Mind Medication is offered as a series of programmes or a one-off session with each year group.
Nicci Roscoe also offers support for individual pupils on a one-to-one basis for those who are struggling and need extra guidance. Each individual session is tailored to the requirements of the pupils. They're able to discuss any underlying issues they may have in a confidential environment.
“Thank you so much for the time you spent with Lara. She felt comfortable straight away and feels really positive after her appointment. She said it was really good and said she is now visualising her bad tummy feeling in a different way and it doesn’t hurt her or make her feel sick now. She is meditating every day and learning what makes her feel anxious such as too many arrangements that she finds very overwhelming and how to deal with things in the moment”
Mum, Stanmore, North London
“Tonight after her session with you I saw the old Sophie for the first time in a while! Thank you so much. I know she is looking forward to seeing you again next week. We are feeling relieved”.
Mum, North London
Pupils may not be showing outward signs of anxiety and overwhelm. This can often be uncovered when the pupil attends an initial Mind Medication 60-90 minute session and are given the opportunity to have additional one-to-one sessions if they would like them.

Mind Medication For Parents
Nicci Roscoe has also developed a programme specifically aimed at showing parents how to best manage the lead-up to exam times at home and help their children. She gives them exercises, tools and techniques to help manage any of their children's anxiety or worry at different times during the school year and to look at different things that may help with their routine at home if necessary.
During the session with the parents Nicci teaches them meditation and exercises to enable them to help their children focus on feeling calmer, having fun and being in the moment.

"Exam revision can be quite a dry topic, but not with Nicci Roscoe! She manages to pull off the seemingly impossible task of getting her audience to associate exam preparation with fun. Her approach is to help pupils see the positive benefits of studying, and to realise the importance of ‘balance’ when striving for success. Through a series of exercises such as anchoring, challenging negative thoughts and exploring self-actualisation techniques, she helped them to address their anxieties and consider a variety of revision techniques. Nicci is the perfect antidote to boring KS3 exam preparation lessons!”
