About us

Our Mindful Youth is an Occupational Therapy and Art Therapy studio that supports children and young people in Geelong and The Bellarine Peninsula. Our Mindful Youth's one on one and group sessions provide young people with a safe space to access programs that promote skill building, creativity, communication and connection. Our work is based on the vast research available showing that as humans, we are far more ready to learn and develop skills when we feel calm, grounded, and have a sense of purpose to complete activities or tasks. Within our sessions we incorporate meditation, yoga, art making, play and music in order to set the scene for a calm environment and better support our clients to ground themselves in the present moment. These factors combined allow our clients to participate in our sessions with a strong sense of self and purpose, whilst feeling grounded and ready to learn new skills.
