Magic THAT puts a smile in your heart

Virtual magic shows that are funny and educational.

As an arts in health practitioner, the well-being and mental health of children is of utmost importance to me. Combining this with over 40 years of performing as a magician means that the magic sessions I offer to promote children’s self-confidence are in a safe environment, dynamic, entertaining, sensitive and with belly laughs of fun. The children feel valued and realise that they can make a difference, that their voice matters.

Magic and self-belief

Transformation

A perfect virtual show

There’s no denying that children love the screen.
Let’s take this opportunity to help them reconnect. Instead of denying them something they feel comfortable with, embrace that opportunity to connect with them.

Using a medium that they feel safe with to nurture a connection with each other and doing that in a safe and stimulating environment.

It is a session filled with laughter and reflections from the children. They’re not only listened to, they know that they are heard.

It’s a show that provides a safe environment for the children making them at ease and able to have an overall great experience

You can do it with this very fun and engaging session.

PROFESSOR RICHARD
WEISSMAN’S RESEARCH

PSYCHOLOGIST AND A MEMBER OF THE INNER MAGIC CIRCLE

Magic and wellbeing: Research has shown that being involved with the performing arts boosts wellbeing. This project extended this idea by identifying the physical and psychological benefits associated with learning magic tricks. The work examines a series of benefits, including raised self-esteem, increased motor control and better social skills. A second piece of work extended this idea to education, reviewing work into how magic can be used to boost critical thinking, creativity, scepticism, and scientific and mathematical understanding.”

KARIAD SERvicES

Engaging children can be challenging.

That’s why every session with Kariad is going to be a breath of fresh air.

If you want to see children smiling from ear to ear and openly participating, then you are in the right place.

A fun experience for the children all the while making sure that their mental health and wellbeing is paramount.

Clients are happy with the results

Here’s what they’ve got to say!

EVERY SESSION IS FILLED WITH FUN
AND LEARNING

Kariad goes beyond just the session

It’s not possible to feel happy all of the time.
During those times, what can we do to support ourselves or to support others? The road to recovery can sometimes be hard.

Everyone knows this, and that’s the reason for Kariad’s sessions. A session that combines learning, healing
and having loads of fun.

You might wonder “What happens next?”

WHY ME AND WHY THIS SESSION?

Without me truly realising at the time, all the experiences I’ve had over the years have been preparing me to be able to create and deliver these incredibly important sessions.
