Therapeutic Support

Therapeutic Intervention Room

 

Our Therapeutic Intervention room accommodates children that are finding it difficult to control their emotions in class. The intervention sessions have helped children manage stress and anxiety while improving their concentration, focus and listening skills. Therapeutic intervention has also improved the children's creativity and imagination whilst building up their confidence and self-esteem.

The environment is relaxed, a method which helps release endorphins helping the children feel happy and positive. We help the children relax their muscles and calm the nervous system. Our techniques calm the children's minds and sharpens concentration and memory retention which helps them focus. Our method of relaxation stimulates the imagination and so encourages self-expression and self-confidence.

If you would like any further information please contact school on 0161 912 1895 and ask to speak to our Therapeutic Teaching Assistant - Colin Lowe.

To add to our Therapeutic alliance we now have an Alternative room, which will broaden the variety of therapeutic space around the school. The new room is specifically designed to promote self-organisation and promote positive change. It will also:

  • help to create a safe space
  • promote self-care/self nurturance, resilience and recovery
  • facilitate the therapeutic alliance
  • provide opportunities for engagement in prevention and crisis de-escalation strategies, as well as a host of other therapeutic exchanges (to teach skills, offer a variety of therapeutic activities etc).
