We look for ways to provide your child

ACCESSIBLE THERAPY

So they can make the progress they need.

Social Skills Groups

We run social skills and anxiety management groups for preschool, primary, intermediate and high school aged students. These groups focus on theory of mind development, emotional intelligence, conflict resolution, communication skills, strategies for managing anxiety and emotional regulation while looking at how to form friendships and maintain them. All while having lots of fun! 

Talk Together groups support children to:​

  • Make friends & keep them

  • Talk about their emotions

  • Pick up on social cues

  • Navigate social conflicts

  • Manage their anxiety

We run our groups online and across Canterbury as after school and school holiday block courses. Each group will have two qualified Talk Together facilitators  and parents will receive an email summary at the conclusion of the program outlining all aspects covered and information on how to practice strategies learnt at home & school.

NEW - LEGO Therapy!

Does your child love LEGO or creating? Could they benefit from support with their social skills or regulating their own emotions? This is for them! Suitable for children 5-17 years of age. Students will work in small groups with 2-3 other peers of the same age/ability for this 2 day workshop. Student’s individual goals will be supported by Talk Together facilitators who are trained in the techniques of LEGO Therapy. We use activities all involving LEGO to work on making & maintaining friendships, team work and communication skills, conflict resolution, reading social clues from others & emotional regulation strategies.
