Kirsten Gill Childrens mindfulness, meditation and relaxation practitioner.
Growing Gurus aim to assist a more positive mindset in children.
By ensuring that the children in our sessions have their own portable coping toolbox and are able to use these tools to remove blocks to learning and growth.
We would hope that we are beginning to equip them with the essential, lifelong skills of inner strength and resilience, the ability to dig deep when things get tough and to bounce back and carry on when they have had a setback, becoming stronger and better able to cope.
We believe that learning and well being go hand in hand.
Growing Gurus practices are like a work out for the mind, building optimal concentration and attention, self awareness, emotional management, relationship skills and decision making.
We want to empower young children and young people so that they can move from stress to success and to grow into the unique and wonderful people that they are meant to be.
Growing Guru Practitioner.
Training with Guru Holistic Therapies has enabled me to become a

I have the knowledge to support the learning process in the classroom. I work to promote positivity and the importance of self care and alleviate the physical and emotional symptoms related to stress.
Through practices which improve focus, reduce stress and promote well being of the whole child, assisting the development, of their emotional intelligence and their inner wisdom.
I provide intervention sessions to primary aged children with special needs in a special school and provide trauma informed practice.
I have worked as a teaching assistant in countless classrooms,
Both in mainstream schools and with children with a range of conditions which mean they have special educational needs.
I have cared for children who have profound and multiple learning difficulties and also with children on the autism spectrum, and those with many other needs such as those who have genetic disorders and those who have brain injuries.
I trained as a NNEB nursery nurse and as a Registered General Nurse.
I use a variety of methods to communicate with the young as well as talking and singing and using sensory story massage with them, I also use “PECS” signs and symbols, and some makaton,
