Workshops & Groups

Project Connect and The Feelings Explorers are our two core therapeutic group programmes for primary-aged children. The programmes are dynamic and flexible, and can be adapted for children in reception through to Year 6. Each programme has been very carefully created by drawing on years of experience and research. They are based on a number of therapeutic frameworks and are arts- and play-based. They usually run for 10-weeks, which enables us to ‘deep dive’ into the topics. This also means they fit well within a school term. Both Project Connect and The Feelings Explorers can be delivered to whole classes as part of a school’s PSHE curriculum, or in small groups of children either in schools or in the community. Please get in touch if you’d like to learn more about our group programmes – we’d love to hear from you!
