Creative Minds

A Creative Workshop For Little Worriers

It can be very scary for children who are experiencing difficult emotions. Not being able to understand or make sense of these feelings can create anxiety and worries.

Sometimes children find it hard to open up about how they feel to their parents/carers and may choose to act out in other behavioural ways, or say nothing at all! Sometimes it is easier to express feelings to someone who is not involved in family dynamics. 

Creative Minds is a psycho-educational workshop designed to help children better understand anxiety and make sense of their worries. A place where like minded children will have the opportunity to express their thoughts and feelings in a safe and creative way.

Please bare in mind that these workshops are not counselling sessions and are designed to help normalise anxiety in hope that the children no longer feel alone.

Each session will focus on what anxiety is and how we can manage it better.  There will also be a different creative activity and topic each time we meet, where the children can create something to help manage their worries at home.  

This weeks topic - Pebble Painting  - This session is all about our worries and how they leave us feeling. The children will have the opportunity to discuss their worries and paint their feelings on to a pebble. The pebble can then be thrown in to the sea or burried in the garden, or even just thrown in the bin as a way of taking control of their feelings and watching them disappear! The pebbles may also be kept as reminders of the feelings they have over come.

The sessions are suitable for children aged 5 - 10 years old.

Date and time - Saturday 29th September. 10am - 11:15am

Sessions are priced at £8 per child.
