For MPS parents or carers
Join one of our popular online 8-week mindfulness courses for MPS parents or carers. Learn to relax more deeply and handle life’s stresses.
In this series of mental health and wellbeing videos we invite UK MPS Society members to explore and understand anxiety as well as techniques to build resilience. These videos have been developed by Diana Thornton who is a counsellor and mindfulness teacher.
Anxiety is something that we all have to deal with and a little bit of anxiety can be helpful to spur us on. But there comes a point where anxiety can stop being helpful and can become a burden. In this series of videos learn what happens in your brain and your body when you become anxious, learn techniques to help yourself during anxious episodes and learn how to build resilience so that anxiety reduces its grip.

These videos will teach you how to manage and deal with your anxiety as well as techniques to build resilience. These sessions were run by Diana Thornton.
In these fun sessions for children, Diana Thornton will introduce children to what happens in their brain and body when they become anxious and will introduce some ways to deal with stress and anxiety drawn from her work as a counsellor and a mindfulness teacher. Parents must be there at the start to ensure that children access the appropriate video and should be nearby to offer support if required.
For young people
Anxiety can sometimes be difficult to break away from. It can also be worrying when you experience it until you understand what is happening to your brain and to your body. In this series of videos, Diana Thornton will demystify what is happening to you physically when anxiety kicks in and will teach you some tried and tested techniques to help get it under control. Parents must be there at the start and should be nearby to offer support if required.
