Creative Arts for Building Confidence
This course is six weeks long. Sessions are once a week for a couple of hours. During the course the group will get to try different ways of expressing themselves through a variety of art forms. Learning to express how you are feeling through art can often have positive effects on mental and emotional wellbeing and resilience. The facilitators are skilled in supporting you to express yourself through arts.
Walk and Talk
A group walking activity designed to support young people experiencing anxiety or isolation. It starts with a counselling appointment to prepare yourself for the walk and talk about any feelings or anxieties you might be having about the walk and meeting a new group of people, then a few days later we go on the walk (the counsellor will be there too to offer you support on the day), then a few days after the walk you have another counselling appointment to talk about how it went and reflect on your experience. Finally we meet again as a group to talk about what we learned about ourselves through the activity.
”Walk and Talk has definitely helped me feel more confident in myself and in meeting new people.”
Keep Calm & Carry On (anger management)
This is a six week group for young people who have issues with anger and recognise anger is stopping them living fully, enjoying their lives and getting on with the people around them. This is a ‘group’ not a course, which means that whilst the group leader will share information about anger and what is known about anger from professional studies it is more important that each person works out what anger means to them and how they can to manage it better for them self. You won’t be lectured or made to write down lots of stuff.
“Keep Calm and Carry On has helped me to mature and move on with my life.”
“A really good group of people and brilliant organiser.”
