Schools

ClearMinds trainers are dedicated to improving the lives of young people. We provide them with very best tools for making wise choices, for developing great family and personal relations and building strong platforms from which children can work out who they are, what they are capable of achieving and ultimately to take the leap from education and the home, embracing adulthood with strength, confidence and clarity.

We work closely with primary and secondary schools to provide children of all ages with lessons, workshops and group or 1-1 coaching sessions that are dynamic, interactive and informative, on themes specifically designed to enhance their mental and physical well-being.

Tailor-made to suit the needs of your pupils our empathic and experienced trainers work to enhance the development of resilient, confident children who are able to navigate life’s many hurdles, make the right choices and achieve fulfilling lives in the future.
