I totally recommend Relax with Ted. I’ve been using the meditations and Nikki has allowed me to read and record her meditations which is wonderful.
This is the second book written by Nikki and her daughter Lucy.
It builds on the meditations in the first book with new ones written especially with a younger audience in mind.
The book is full of lovely relaxations, but also includes some other strategies to help children (and Adults) stay calm. Brilliant to read at bedtime as a relaxing end to the day, helping your child settle down for a wonderful nights sleep with the sweetest of dreams.
Some of the meditations offer visual techniques to get rid of worries and anxiety, helping children to feel happy and safe. Ideal for parents to use at bedtime or as part of a therapeutic service.
Quotes from professionals who work with in this field:
‘This book is packed full of beautiful visualisations that will capture your children’s imaginations and help them relax during the day or at bedtime. I love how there is a choice of endings. There are also a couple breathing techniques to empower children to learn to self- regulate their emotions. The script and explanations are easy to follow and the animations and photos which Nikki’s daughter Lucy has done make the book user friendly and fun to read. I would highly recommend this book and I will be using it in my Relax Kids, Children Do Yoga, and Story Massage classes in both schools and community settings.’Helen Morris Relax Kids Southport
