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

We help children fly by giving them the skills they need to grow, develop and thrive in a changing world because we believe that children should be skilled for life as well as being schooled in the classroom. To do this, we offer:

  1. Individual creative childcare to support childrens’ passions.
  2. A one-to-one Leadership Programme designed to develop young leaders with the passion, character and skills to make a positive difference in the world.
  3. We also provide group courses that give children some of the key skills to succeed in the 21st century; leadership, resilience, teamwork and creativity.

We approach everything in a way that’s serious fun.

1. 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.

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). Our fees are £16.50ph and £20/month membership (minimum 2 months). Alternatively you can be a non-member and pay £16.50ph and £30/session.

2. Leadership Programme - This tailored programme for 10-14 year olds, designed in partnership with Katy Granville-Chapman, Director of the Wellington College Leadership Institute, will use the latest research to develop young leaders with passion, character and skills who can make a positive difference in the world. The programme is inspired by Harvard Business School’s Leadership Initiative; The University of Pennsylvania’s Positive Psychology Centre; The University of Oxford’s Department of Education and The University of Melbourne’s Positive Education Centre.

The programme is 8 sessions of 90 minutes with one of our exceptional Role Models trained in delivering leadership education and takes place at the family’s home. The programme costs £595.

3. Life Skills Courses - 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.

Our range of five fun and interesting 4-5 day half-term and holiday courses (10am – 3pm daily) for 8-12 year olds in London are in Teamwork, Resilience, Leadership, Creativity and a final module in Mastery. These separate courses can be completed in any order, on their own or as a complete programme.
