Helping children with emotional & behaviour problems

Many children don’t want to, or cannot, talk about their problems. Play therapy is very effective for children aged 3 to 12. The child chooses from a range of activities in the play room. These include: drawing and painting, sand tray, clay, puppets, musical instruments, story-telling, role play. The Play Therapist focuses closely on the child, communicating using the media the child has chosen. Although of course, the child can talk about their problems, when they are ready, on average research shows only 8% of the session is spent in talking.

Between 73% and 84% receiving play therapy to Play Therapy UK’s standards show a positive change – the more severe the problems the higher the change. (Based on over 10,000 cases).

Because play therapy works through unconscious processes, it is important that practitioners are fully qualified and meet the highest standards of practice. Play Therapy is now regulated through the Professional Standards Authority’s Accredited Register programme. The PTUK Register of Play and Creative Arts Therapists warrants the quality and effectiveness of its Registrants. Using unregistered therapists can be dangerous.

Play therapy improves a child’s ability to learn and reduces the chance of adult mental health problems.

Childcare in London Share

We nurture character because we believe 'soft skills' are as important as academics

  • Exciting holiday courses focused on helping prepare children for life
  • Fun and engaging temporary & ongoing childcare tailored to your child’s interests
  • Entertainment for children during special events including weddings, Christenings, birthday parties etc

We focus on the individual strengths of every child and are deeply committed to supporting them through their formative years, whether that be through our Creative Childcare or our Life Skills Courses.

Creative Childcare

An ad hoc and part-time creative childcare service in London for 3-12 year olds, provided by fun, engaging & talented Role Models.

Role Models is a unique service providing skilled & engaging ad hoc and ongoing part-time childcare in London.

We want to inspire children to create and learn, whilst having fun at the same time. Not only do our Role Models have extensive childcare experience but they are also lucky enough to be super talented in at least one of music, arts & crafts, drama, sport or homework (whilst many also come with other talents such as cooking or languages). What’s more, they all love sharing their passion with children. Our ongoing Role Models can normally commit to a minimum of 3 months, potentially longer depending on your requirements (e.g. after-school care or full time roles in the holidays).

Life Skills Courses

A range of fun and interesting 4-5 day half-term and holiday courses (10am – 3pm) for 8-12 year olds in London, focused on developing the soft skills that help prepare children for life.

The courses are a fun way of developing a growth mindset and the key ‘soft’ skills required to thrive in social & work environments at school, at home and in life ahead. The programme aim is to encourage children to push themselves outside of their comfort zones, embrace new experiences and persist with areas that are not their strengths. They are not designed only for children who particularly lack confidence & resilience; we believe these key life skills can be continually developed.

Helping children with problems Share

Individual movement and listening programmes for adults and children.

Often the symptoms are all too obvious, but the causes less so. Rather than focusing on the symptoms we identify the underlying causes and work to reduce them through a daily exercise done at home.

Do you or your child have:

  • Reading problems
  • Dyslexia

  • Dyspraxia(DCD)
  • Attention Deficit disorder(ADD)
  • Asperger’s Syndrome
  • Anxiety and Panic Disorder
  • Developmental immaturity
  • Speech and language difficulties
  • Bed wetting
  • Low self esteem
  • Sensory processing difficulties

The individual Reflex integration and stimulation programmes we provide work at a very early point developmentally. They work by securing the foundations on which all other development is built. Because we work at such a fundamental level we can help lots of people who have very different problems and/or diagnoses. Drug free non invasive therapy to help you or your child achieve your full potential and make your life easier.

We have clinics in Leith Edinburgh, Morningside Edinburgh and Biggar, South Lanarkshire.

music groups for toddlers Share

Let your child’s imagination come alive........

Boogie Beat music and movement is quite a unique concept as our classes, workshops and parties are very active and lively, and incorporate dance themes based on traditional fairy tales and nursery rhymes using all our own music and illustrations.

Beautiful puppets are also used from our Toy Box, to sing songs, both traditional and new. Various large visual props are introduced throughout the session to engage the children and beautiful illustrations are used to enhance their imagination.

Boogie Beat classes are suitable for children 6 months to preschool. We also run weekly workshops within Nurseries/playgroups and Schools (up to Yr 1 and after school clubs) and Birthday Parties too!

"Boogie Beat has proved to be a great experience for both my children. The songs, music and movement have been instrumental in the growth of their confidence." NH
