Our TREE group stands for:
- Emotions, and
TREE group is for those who have experienced trauma and are struggling with their emotions. During the six sessions we work through a range of emotional literacy and regulation skills while using Lego and other creative tools to help build safe and accepting relationships with themselves and their peers. During this time we also discuss what trauma is and how this can affect our emotions and our ability to form relationships with others. Some of the other creative tools we may use, alongside Lego, are art, play and sensory approaches.
Our TREE groups run on demand through a waiting list system. We use this method so we can help match our groups up perfectly with young people who are similar in age and emotional understanding. It runs once a week for an hour, for six weeks.
The types of young people who benefit most from our TREE group are:
- Young people who may have been bereaved.
- Young people in the care system.
- Young people who have been adopted.
- Young carers.
- Young people who have siblings with additional needs.
- Young people who have experienced or witnessed abuse.
...and other young people who have experienced trauma in their life that may compromise their emotions or emotional systems.
We can run our TREE group for any ages from 5 years upwards. Our experienced and qualified practitioner can guide the sessions appropriately whether we're working with a group of little ones or a group of older teens.
*We do expect our young people on these groups to already have a good grasp of social skills and have age appropriate cognitive ability. This allows us to focus primarily on our emotional skills and work related to emotional literacy and regulation.*
The cost for the full course of six sessions is £120 per young person.
