Time to be Me

The low levels of wellbeing of children can have a great impact on their childhood and life chances.

Without the experience of happiness and a sense of wellbeing in our lives, it is difficult to thrive and to become the best we can. The low levels of wellbeing of children can have a great impact on their childhood and life chances. Our service provides a safe and secure environment in which children are able to share and explore emotions, thoughts, and feelings through the therapeutic activities that we offer.  We help those children who have negative emotions deal with them without repressing or denying them by encouraging positivity, building self-esteem and resilience.   
 
Our Emotional Wellbeing Practitioners are based in schools and work with children either on a one-to-one basis or within small groups.  Each child will be reassessed every 4 weeks and can continue attending sessions as long as necessary.

We recognise the importance of joint working and consult regularly with parents, teachers and professionals.
