I hope you are all well and enjoying the lighter days and a bit of sunshine.
I just wanted to take a few moments to update you on a few things that are now available at Creative Minds for children, Adults and families to benefit from.
Workshops for teenagers.
We have had lots of people ask recently if we offer workshops for teens. We are now delighted to be able to say that yes we do! In April 2020 we aim to launch our first 10 week programme for teenagers, aged 14 - 16 years old, that will focus on the impact of anxiety. Due to the sensitivity of the subject this group will have limited spaces. Keep a lookout for dates and costs very soon.
Free and reduced rates - counselling sessions.
I would like to introduce everyone to Julie who is our junior counsellor. Julie is awaiting graduation from her counselling foundation degree and we are so lucky to have her join our team. Julie is currently offering FREE one to one counselling to all parents/carers who's children have accessed our workshops up until May 2020.
We can also offer a reduced rate of £25 per session with Julie for one to one counselling for anyone who has not accessed workshops but would like to participate in sessions.

Over Easter half term we will be running a very special workshops that will focus on loss. This workshop will run over 3 days on 8th, 15th and 17th April 2020 and aims to help children process any kind of loss, make sense of difficult emotions and learn new was of expressing and managing them. The cos of the 3 days is £25 and is part funded by Hays Travel Foundation. Limited spaces due to the sensitivity of the workshop.
