Mindscreen – we help you to raise your child’s self-esteem.
Our enlightening programme helps children aged 11 upwards to recognise their skills, interests, talents, and strengths. In addition, it provides you with tools and step-by-step guides to support them to develop their self-awareness, self-belief, and self-confidence.

How Mindscreen helps children and families
We take great pride in offering you easy-to-use resources to help your children to learn about themselves, establish their goals, and develop an optimistic outlook on life.
How Mindscreen supports families
- Personal profile – your child answers a series of questions about themselves which creates a unique profile, all about their behaviour, motivation, wants, and needs.
- Self-understanding – your child’s profile will help them to learn about themselves, their skills and strengths, interests and motivation.
- Careers – there’s even a section about study and career pathways that your child will be more likely to fit into and enjoy.
- Lesson plans – 9 engaging lesson plans full of thought-provoking activities and stories, all designed to help your child understand themselves and build up self-esteem.
- Homework for the mind – now, work through the lesson plans together, in the comfort of your own home, and watch your child’s self-belief and self-confidence grow.
- Parent/child relationship – finding out how your child prefers to communicate and discovering what interests and inspires them, helps you talk to them in their “language” and improve relationships.
- Parents – many parents have told us that completing Mindscreen not only helped them understand their child, but the process also helped them build up their own confidence.
- Whole family – going through Mindscreen together, as a whole family, is a great advantage because you’ll get to know how you differ from your children and/or your partner. Knowing that these differences are neither good nor bad, helps develop an appreciation for each other’s qualities and strengths.

What teachers say
“Our students have grown as a result of Mindscreen and the reports have guided provision from all angles.” Rebecca Garside, former SENCO & Curriculum Leader, Lewis Charlton School.
What parents say

How Mindscreen works for teachers and parents
One of the greatest things about the Mindscreen experience® is that any adult can deliver it because it’s easy to understand and use.
“As a SENCO, we are used to ‘teaching’ interventions, but trying to explain to other staff what to do can be time consuming and not always accurate. The Mindscreen materials are presented such that any TA could pick them up, do a little bit of preparation and deliver a quality intervention.” Abigail Hawkins, SENsible SENCO.
“I’ve been greatly impressed with the uncomplicated yet effective setup of Mindscreen – it may be a simple process, but it’s an exceptionally well-crafted concept.” Kate Tunstall, parent.
The entire programme is focused on helping children understand themselves. For instance, how they feel, what they enjoy and love, what motivates and inspires them. Their personal profile uncovers their unique strengths and skills. This way, you’ll be able to help them to realise how they can apply them in all sorts of areas of their lives.
How Mindscreen works for your children
It’s all about helping children to learn about themselves, establish their goals, and develop an optimistic outlook on life.
Their personal profile helps them to recognise their talents. As a result, you’ll see little light-bulbs burning bright as their self-awareness and confidence grow.
Mindscreen experience® doesn’t just teach children to think about who they are and what they want from life. It also shows them that there are so many doors out there, just waiting to be opened.
“Wow! I think the information gathered from the survey is very insightful. I think this is really cool.” Sarah, pupil.
“How does it know I don’t like sitting down for long? It didn’t ask me that!” Danny, pupil.
“After completing the Mindscreen programme with the first group, I had a queue of students at my door asking if they could be in the next group!”
Jan Woods, Thomas Deacon Academy
“Pupils reported increased confidence, increased planning and communication skills and higher aspirations.”
Kevin Lowden, University of Glasgow
“A really valuable resource for any child, especially those with low self-esteem or who need help with their confidence.”
Erica Knight, parent
Mindscreen’s resources support growth in children’s self-understanding.
Founder Gav Devereux says, “Mindscreen offers teachers and parents a unique early intervention pathway. Above all, our programme helps adults to raise their children’s self-confidence, and self-belief.”
