Articles

Don’t forget we have a blog with therapy articles for you to browse on a variety of subjects. Here are some key articles to give you insight into working with young people – the joys, the challenges and everything inbetween.

These items and worksheets can be brilliant prompts to get a child talking – whether directly about their own experiences or through imagination and creativity.

Organisations & Resources to recommend to young people

There are so many helpful resources and places of support for young people now – with the internet making self-understanding and support-seeking a smoother process than it used to be. The following organisations and charities provide meaningful support as well as information and signposting. These charities could be recommended to the young people themselves or to their caregivers.
