Healing for the Heart

Children & Young People

Building Better Futures

What we do

We work with children in local Primary Schools, using Art and Talking Therapy to help them process emotions and feelings.

Our 1:1 service based in central Glasgow provides affordable support for children and young people from 5 – 16.

What difference does it make?

It’s often difficult for children and young people to find a space which feels safe and in which they can process hurts, hang-ups and fears.

We provide a neutral, confidential space, staffed by professional, experienced therapists who care.

We offer regular review space with the therapist, child/young person and parent/caregiver whilst maintaining confidentiality in terms of the material processed.

We have robust risk management/safeguarding procedures to make sure everyone is protected.

Research shows that the impact of Adverse Childhood Experiences leaves a long lasting legacy. Access to effective, early support can counter these effects.
