Mindfulness - The Breathing Fish Technique

Chantal Malan is joining Anelle Burger in the lounge to talk about a very effective tool that strengthens the loving parent-child relationship in helping families deal with everyday stress and anxiety. Mindfulness can help us in frustrating situations when communication often breaks down. This is a great tool to help our children to become emotionally intelligent.

Not only for homeschooling / home education families.

Chantal Malan has a post graduate degree in counselling psychology. She was head of the Career Centre at the University of Stellenbosch Business School until 2005, when she decided to exchange the counselling of students for the life of motherhood.
