Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is part of the sensory curriculum at Ysgol Y Deri which contributes to our pupils experiencing a feeling of well being, relaxation, inclusion and happiness in tranquil surroundings.

The sessions provide an opportunity to boost the immune system by massaging the feet and hands with pure essential oils.

The oil used is Roman Chamomile or Tangerine in a base oil of Grape-seed

Yoga

Yoga is one of many interventions that has been implemented in Ysgol Y Deri.

This gentle therapeutic practise has been very beneficial for our students in many different areas of their life.

Children/young people who are experiencing developmental and emotional challenges often present a variety of symptoms. These often include high state of stress and reactivity. They can present a state of low/ high energy or disorganised state. Regular yoga practise gently rests the nervous system creating a feeling of calm state and ability to cope better with others and the environment around them. 

Benefits and aims of this therapeutic yoga include:

  • Improving motor planning and control
  • Improving self-awareness
  • Developing the ability to self-regulate across environments and demands
  • Developing head, neck and upper trunk control
  • Enhancing a sense of wellbeing, calm and alert state

We are able to offer one to one and group yoga sessions depending on the child/young adult needs and abilities.
