Young people aged 9 – 18 years old complete an 11-14 week programme (in line with school term times), with progress reviewed regularly. Sessions are tailor-made to meet the identified needs of young people, who each set their own targets to work on. Key therapeutic aims include; Managing anger, Stress and anxiety management skills, Dealing with difficult situations, Communication, Working with others (teamwork), Relationships, Peer pressures, Keeping safe (home, school, community), Appreciating your personal qualities / skills (learning to like you for who you are).
Young people attend one group per week, 6-8pm. Unfortunately, if a young person is unable to attend on a particular evening, we cannot usually accommodate swapping due to the careful allocation based on group theme, risk, numbers, needs and/or abilities of young people. If a young person cannot attend the sessions offered, we can defer their place and try and offer an alternative in the following allocation.
