CBT helper squad

Structured activities with defined group roles to aid the development of:

The ability to relate to others.

Strong communication skills.

Patience with others.

Knowing how and when to show empathy.

Active listening skills.


A cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) game for small group or individual projects working on understanding feelings and emotions, negative thoughts, coping skills, and perspective taking. The Helper Squad is a set of engaging characters that help younger students understand these more abstract skills.


Bereavement and Emotional literacy

Speaking about and identifying feelings/Creating future action plans

Children can be unintentionally overlooked by family members struggling to deal with their own grief. For a child who wishes to, school staff can provide an opportunity to talk about what has happened, with a familiar and trusted adult in relative peace and calm. When a parent or sibling has died, children and young people can try to spare their surviving parent by hiding their own grief and appearing to be OK. School is often seen as somewhere safe to express this grief. We offer a focussed group forum using art and craft activities for children to offer and receive such support.

1:1 coaching and mentoring







Anger group

Adult to child support providing a sounding board for fears and frustrations based around developing action plans for now and the future.




Developing emotional literacy and plans around anger and self-regulation

One of the main focuses of cognitive-behavioural therapy is on changing the automatic negative thoughts that can contribute to and exacerbate emotional difficulties and anxiety. These negative thoughts spring forward spontaneously, are accepted as true, and tend to negatively influence the individual's mood. CBT informs our mentoring/coaching process


(REBT): This type of CBT is centred on identifying and altering irrational beliefs. The process of REBT involves identifying the underlying irrational beliefs, actively challenging these beliefs, and finally learning to recognize and change these thought patterns we use worksheets and reflective practice to aid students in addressing self-regulation.

Pop up mind- up sessions

Neuroscience and self-regulation awareness and practises
