Coming together is the beginning. Keeping together is the progress. Working together is success.

~ Henry Ford ~

"In an average classroom, ten children will have witnessed their parents separate, eight will have experienced severe physical violence, sexual abuse or neglect, one will have experienced the death of a parent and seven will have been bullied." (Faulkner, 2011)

It's likely that within each year group you will have many children who are facing challenges and stress and who are simply struggling to cope. There are so many different challenges and pressures today that children face in life that are impacting negatively on their mental health and well-being, which is leading to the mental health crisis in society.

When children are not feeling happy it makes it very difficult if not impossible to learn. This can really impact upon the child and the class as a whole. Children can begin to lose confidence and self-esteem becomes low, emotions are running high and often this is expressed through challenging and disruptive behaviours, making learning for the rest of the class tricky too. This can lead to pupils not reaching their academic potential. When so many children are being denied support or are being added to never ending waiting lists to access outside mental health support this can leave teachers feeling stressed and overwhelmed. Teachers face the added pressure and responsibilities

 of supporting individual children's emotional and mental health needs all while teaching the whole class as well.  


 

 

If this sounds familiar 
then 
we can help...
Our team specialises in supporting children 4-12 years through Play and Creative Arts therapy.

"Play therapy is to children what counselling is to adults."

To learn more about Play Therapy               

  Through our programme of creative therapeutic services delivered by our friendly therapists we can work in partnership to support children's mental health and well-being in your School. We can help children to find new creative ways to express their thoughts and feelings safely and discover new ways of coping, helping to reduce emotional distress and the potential long term impacts on mental health. We can support teachers in developing new strategies and ways of responding through drop in sessions and creative training workshops.
This will help to create a more calm, tranquil and happy classroom where children can actually benefit and learn from the wonderful teaching.

Children can now also attend sessions at our new therapy base or we can come into school.
