Support for Children and Young People

 

Emotional Health Workshops - An interactive 3 hour session exploring emotions and the concept of emotional health in a fun and creative way. Children attend with a parent carer which creates opportunity to bond and talk about different emotions. We also look at coping strategies, how physical health supports how we feel and how practising gratitude can help support a positive mindset. 

For more information on these workshops see our testimonials and gallery. Please visit our Eventbrite page and subscribe to our mailing list to be kept up to date with dates available.

We also deliver schemes of work to pupil's. All lessons are an hour and we cover topics such as 'Being Kind', 'Understanding Anxiety', 'Self-esteem', 'Gratitude' and 'Anger'.
