Born and bred in Mauritius and now living in the UK, Salsabil Dehnen is a young mum of 2, wife and a student of psychology with a focus of Mindfulness Therapy for children and adolescents.
“I started Mini Mindful Muslims because after having two of my own children, I saw the importance of helping children better recognise and regulate their emotions, instead of simply being consumed by them. I am passionate about children’s mental health.
By practising mindfulness regularly, children are able to respond more consciously and calmly to challenging situations.
I am passionate about guiding children in mindfulness so they have the opportunity to live a calmer, more mindful happy childhood. By teaching children how to take control of their own mental health and wellbeing at an early age will enable them to be happy and healthy throughout their lives, enabling them to thrive and grow into successful young Muslims.”
By developing this pack, our aim is to reach all children far and wide, of all ages to practise mindfulness meditation within a Islamic context.
