The Thrive Programme for Children and Young People
The pressures that children can face these days are considerable. These may be social and peer pressures - from social media for example; pressures from parents, schools and teachers especially at exam times, pressures from siblings and most significantly, pressures from them selves. They may have been bullied, or refusing to go to school. Unfortunately too, they may have experienced some form of abuse or trauma.
All of this can leave them feeling despondent, lethargic unusually quite or feeling ill, down right miserable or aggressive, completely unruly or difficult to engage.
The Thrive programme brings together scientific research and years of clinical experience to provide a 5 week course of guided learning specifically designed for younger people.
Based on the Thrive Programme principles within the main Thrive book the course is simplified and made easily accessible for younger people.
How it works
The parent/s and child/young-person will be invited to come for an initial consultation. This is an opportunity for everyone to meet and explain about their positive and not so positive aspects of their lives and the Thrive programme for Teenagers will be explained.
My role as the Licensed Thrive Consultant is to bring the programme alive for the young person so that they can gain the maximum from the programme.
If the young person would like to work with and are supported by the parents we would book a series of appointments and begin the process as soon as we can.
I can confidently say that if the youngster works with me, and has the ongoing support from their significant adults as their new found skills develop, they will begin feel better about themselves, happier healthier and more in control of their lives within a very short space of time
