Give your child the chance to explore emotions and learn strategies to help him or her thrive.
Fridays 10.00 am
Explore, Create, Express! is run by Carol who is a Certified Play Therapist, with a lovely gentle manner and a brilliant way of helping children to open up and explore their emotions (the good ones and the difficult ones!)
The sessions are designed to support emotional well being.
Your child will take part in a variety of simple, fun exercises and activities to warm up their bodies, calm their minds and stretch the imaginations.
Each week there will be a careful selection of physical movements or games, followed by learning and practising some breathing exercises to help the children feel in control and to learn to ground themselves. Carol will then either share a therapeutic story experience with the children or take them on a journey into their imaginations (a creative visualisation). The session will finish with a hands -on creative activity which will link to the story or journey and help the children to explore and express their emotions.
This course will help your child’s confidence to gradually grow as he or she learns to feel grounded and good about him/herself. It will give you tips and strategies that you can use to help your child to self regulate, to calm down, to understand and articulate a range of emotions and some of the activities may even help him/her to get to sleep! Lots of what your child learns in the sessions can be used in day to day life.
Please note that this is NOT therapy but if you feel therapy is something your child would benefit from, Carol can sign post you to a professional in your area who may be able to help.
PLEASE NOTE THAT AN ADULT IS NEEDED TO SUPPORT THE CHILD THROUGHOUT THE SESSION. THERE IS A VIDEO AVAILABLE WITHIN THE MEMBER AREA WHICH WE RECOMMEND PARENTS WATCH BEFORE STARTING THE COURSE.
