The Art of "Chill-Axing"

Does your 11-13 year old struggle with stress, anxiety, or feeling overwhelmed? Do they have difficulty regulating their emotions? Are they quick to anger, withdraw, or meltdown?

Join The Hummingbird Centre's Occupational Therapist (OT) Leah Gencheff in this fun interactive 8-week group therapy program where we will practice mindfulness, yoga, and breathing techniques.

We will gain a better understanding of how the mind-body connection can help relieve symptoms of anxiety and stress and promote positive self-regulation strategies.  We will explore all 8 senses (yes there are 8 senses in the body!) as a tool to cultivate relaxation and mindfulness. We hope to create a supportive space that encourages children to connect with others, learn practical tools, and develop self-reflection practice.
