In this current climate schools are struggling financially but more importantly so are the children.
Our workshops will support three partner schools housing the most vulnerable young people.
More than ever before young people are suffering with greater feelings of emotional complexity and the current resources are often alienating, have limited space and avilability and are not accessible.
We can help!
We are currently applying for funding to support three partner schools with their year 4 and 5 students build resilience and learn coping strategies to help combat difficult life events.
Providing 180 young people with resilience tools that might just save their lives and prevent negative future life trajectories.
Each workshop runs for 12 weeks and will provide not only an end of term performance but data / social proof on the efficacy of our work.
Measuring the impact in the following areas:
- Higher academic attainment
- Greater Self-awareness
- Enhanced compassion and empathy for others
- Elevated confidence
- Raised self esteem
- Poised body language and posture
- Refined articulation and speaking and listening skills
- Ability to build resilience in challenging moments
- Activated aspirations dreams and goals
- Inspired greater work ethics
With your help we can provide young people with a safe reflective, fun and engaging space to explore, express and release any core issues through our unique and innovative therapeutic drama and coaching workshops.
It is our vision that no child should be left to suffer in silence. We can help young people cope with adversity and thrive in their interpretation of the world.

Why our work is effective?
Arts based practices like drama are more engaging, relatable and therefore more sustainable when creating change.
See data below on the importance of our work
NHS Data has shown that now more than ever young people are struggling to cope with difficult life events and as a result are bombarded with overwhelming thoughts and emotions that they do not know how to deal with.
Now 1 in 6 young people will suffer with a mental health issue by the time they are 18 and these are not always genetic dispositions, they are often caused by social and environmental factors which can be prevented through awareness, support and by learning resilience tools.
2- Repercussions of not doing this work
Working as a teacher for over 12 years in mainstream education opened my eyes to how overworked and underpaid most teachers are. Most do not have the time to provide counselling and emotional guidance on top of all the other jobs, despite their willingness to help.
It was always heart-breaking for me to see so many children suffering and not have the time or energy to support them the way they needed. To simply pass the case on the “Designated Safeguarding Lead” who I expected would alienate the child on the first meeting and put them right back to square one: Suffering and alone.
And now with cases worsening we need to ask ourselves: Could this be another situation like the pandemic?
Where we can see the problems arising but just hope that it will sort itself out?
We can not afford the luxury of another global crisis!
The Guardian was calling this mental health crisis an epidemic back in 2017 and now we see these issues escalating even more.

What are we doing to help?
Young people need role models that are fun. They need an engaging medium, such as drama, and the support of a safe community to help them trust the adult working with them and open up.

What are we preventing?
Addiction, self-harm, sexual exploitation, gang and grooming influences, abusive relationships, emotional violence, antisocial behaviour, depression and anxiety, apathy and low motivation, unemployment, teen pregnancy, eating disorders and even suicide are some of the repercussion we will face if nothing is done about this.
These are just some of the coping strategies that many young people today are using to deal with their emotional pain.
Would you want your children to suffer with any of the above?
The reality is that without learning healthy coping strategies to deal with difficult emotions many young people are struggling and are suffering in silence.
Wouldn’t you feel safer knowing your children were learning resilience and coping skills in school in the designated P.S.H.E time?
Through a relatable medium that is fun?
With experienced professionals?
We have developed a system from our 15 years of research and practice that has shown between 98-100% effectiveness in its practice models in schools to date.
These stem from our research into Psychology, Sociology, Philosophy, Person Centred Counselling, Neuroplasticity, Guided Meditation, Mindfulness, Theatre for Development, Psychotherapeutic Drama, Teaching and Learning educational practices and healing strategies in relation to the development of children.
What you get out of it?
In addition to our free guided Meditations all our donors and patrons receive termly updates with data reports on the success of the projects, so that you can see how your money has impacted the lives of so many young people.
We can no longer afford to turn a blind eye and naively believe that we are doing enough.
The future of our young people and country depends on it!
