My child is quiet or shy in groups or around others. Is this suitable for them?

Yes. Mighty Minds Groups will benefit young people who experience group settings in this way. It is likely that they will be amongst young people who experience similar difficulties.The sessions will have a warranted, highly specialist, clinical psychologist leading them and another adult within the group (with psychology backgrounds). So there will be a lot of adult attention and direction should children need this. This will also mean that children can talk to us adults on an individual level rather than talking and feeding back to the wider group, should they prefer this option.There’s no requirement or pressure for any of the children to feedback or share their thoughts with the larger group, unless they want to.

Do children have to attend each session?

Yes, ideally. Mighty Minds Groups are 6 sessions in total, split over across 7 weeks. Each part will run for 1.5 hours. To really gain the benefits that Mighty Minds has on offer, ideally children attend all workshops.

Will children be offered a break?

Yes. During sessions, a short break and refreshments will be provided.

Can children attend Mighty Minds Group with friends?

Yes. Young people may feel more comfortable seeing a familiar face in a group setting. If a friend of the young person is also interested in joining the group, we can arrange things so they are together and are able to sit near each other.

Can you cater for children with specific needs?

Yes. If there are any other specific needs your child may have, we are keen to think about specific adaptions we can make, as we would like to make these group as accessible and inclusive as possible.Please contact us before booking to discuss further.
