Its hard to believe a year has passed since we ran our first 2-day therapy group during the school holidays last year! It was such a success that we are doing it again this year on Wednesday 9th and Thursday 10th August. This group is aimed at 8-12 year olds, and children must be able to attend both days. We will be including animal assisted therapy, ecotherapy, aromatherapy and yoga.
Is your child, or a child you know, struggling with an emotional issue or mental health difficulty at the moment?
- Perhaps they have experienced a bereavement, family break up, bullying or other upsetting situation and are feeling very sad, or it has affected their confidence or self-esteem.
- Maybe they are feeling anxious, and this could be affecting school attendance, or causing other problems.
- Or perhaps they are having difficulties controlling their anger, and this is affecting relationships and family life.
The aim of our groups is to help children and young people cope with difficult feelings – anger, anxiety and sadness – and learn to express them in healthy ways. Feedback from previous participants and their parents has been extremely positive, with everyone finding our groups very beneficial.
Parents/carers are offered the opportunity to spend some time with our Parenting Practitioner for support and management advice, while their teenager is attending the group sessions.
We do not charge for these groups, however places are limited so do get in touch as soon as possible if you are interested. Call 01335 418139 or email us.
