What do we do?
From our knowledge and experience of supporting children and families for the past 30 years, as well as first-hand experience as parents, we believe that finding fun ways to connect and to communicate better will help you to nurture your family’s well-being and good mental health.
With our team of qualified practitioners, we empower families to support each other through daily life as well as through more challenging times, such as starting school or college, exams, changes at home, etc. We guide the whole family in a holistic way, using positive communication skills, mindfulness, creativity and other techniques to achieve greater understanding and reduce negative emotions such as anxiety and anger. These skills will give you and your young people the confidence, resilience and practical tools to manage all aspects of life in a calmer, more harmonious and positive way.
Our workshops and programmes will enable you to manage issues of challenge, anxiety and stress at the earliest possible point, with positive and life-changing outcomes, all leading to happier family relationships.
Research shows that communication and connection are key to achieving such positive outcomes and scientifically proven techniques such as mindfulness lead to greater well-being, fewer negative emotions and less anxiety. Through teaching positive communication skills, mindfulness, positive mindset, emotional development, relaxation skills and a range of other techniques, we can empower you to develop a stronger, balanced connection. These skills will help all of your family members to become more compassionate and kind to each other, have more understanding of each others’ differences and be able to listen to each other better. They will also give you and your young people the confidence, resilience and tools to manage all aspects of life in a calmer, more positive way.
We make sure that our workshops and programmes are fun and relevant, allowing you to share and build upon your skills alongside other families. If you would prefer us to work with your family on a one-to-one basis, we can offer flexible support tailored to your needs.
Once you have spent time with us, you have the option to join our ongoing support network, where you can offer your experiences, ideas and skills to other families.
