About us

We are passionate about improving the emotional and mental wellness of children and young people. Our team are friendly, knowledgeable and supportive of all children and young people we work with. We provide strategies to help manage anxiety or low mood which are age appropriate, in settings that are community rather than hospital or clinic based.

 

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

The Reach4Wellbeing team delivers Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) group programmes for children and young people. The groups are held during term time and are run in local community settings; transportation to and from the venue is the responsibility of parents/carers.

Each of the sessions are evidence based and we are able to offer the following:

  • A seven week anxiety and low mood programme for young people age 13 and over
  • A seven week anxiety programme for older children age 9 -12 years*
  • A seven week anxiety programme (Little Explorers) for younger children age 5 - 8 years*

*for the latter two age groups a parent or their representative is required to attend part of the sessions.
