Children’s Group Work Programs
We offer group work programs especially designed for young and school age children.

Our children’s group work programs help build self esteem, resilience, empathy, communication and problem solving skills and create a positive sense of Self.

Children learn self regulation skills and relaxation techniques to promote their mental health and well being.

Parents and carers are involved in understanding the potential value of these strategies and we support them to be incorporated within the home setting. Calmer children, calmer parents! Ahh!

We consider this helps the child/ren to generalise the skills and support proactive self care at home. Many parents and carers really enjoy the relaxation techniques too!
