“There are things that schools can do…to intervene early and strengthen resiliency before serious mental health problems occur”. We share this view, find out more about our services from our innovative brochure. The Mind Space Launch Brochure
We believe in providing support for young people, caregivers and teachers when they want it, not when they need it. We foster emotional wellbeing and resiliency so young people are nurtured to achieve their aspirations.
We aim to ensure that young people’s emotional wellbeing is supported throughout their education, and therefore we believe in working from an early intervention model by providing specialist, accessible psychological support- so we will work within the educational setting /establishment.
Here are some of the ways we foster emotional wellbeing and resiliency for students, caregivers and educational staff:
One to One Support
Short term and long-term therapy. We work from a range of psychological models such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, psychodynamic, solution focused, Dialectical Behavioural therapy, compassion focused and family therapy based models.
Lunch time support sessions.
Classroom support: e.g. effective for students experiencing social anxiety, attendance difficulties.
Group programmes: e.g. enhancing self-esteem, mindfulness, stress and anxiety management.
Reflective peer support groups, led by students, caregivers and teachers and assisted by Mind Space facilitator.
Information sessions: e.g. recognising signs of emotional distress.
Consultation Support & Indirect Working
Support with SEAL and PSHE lessons.
Supporting safeguarding procedures including CAFs.
Support on special occasions: Parents evening and exam results day.
Liaison with external agencies (i.e. CAMHS, GPs, CSE)
