Therapy is unavailable, inaccessible and isolated from the community spaces where people make sense of the world. Therapeutic spaces are a catalyst for generating meaning and sense making. This should be available to everybody to support a deeper level of insight into ourselves, others and the world in which we live.
We believe healthy relational spaces can liberate young people from the traumatic impact of coercive systems and support them to think for themselves, make their own decisions and take ownership of their lives.
We believe it’s time for a new approach, one that is co-created with young people outside of clinical settings.
By supporting young people to develop self-knowledge, compassion and curiosity towards their inner life, we can help them find meaning in suffering. We run trauma-informed mental health education programmes in schools, providing young people with an understanding of mental health that functions without the use of diagnostic labels.
If young people are to thrive and live their potential, we need to make sure our society’s approach to mental health is working. We work alongside young people and psychologists to create social impact and research projects that enable young people’s experiences, views and ideas to be a driving force for change.
Our vision is for a world where mental health support is embedded within systems, not separate from them. Where times of suffering don’t disconnect us, but help us learn about ourselves and eachother, acknowledge our needs, and make sense of our problems together.
We provide young people with different ways of understanding their emotional world through a programme that fosters self awareness, connection, and hope.
Our seminars draw on Psychosynthesis theory and a range of other psychological models that explore the human experience.
Ideas raised to action can change the world. Working with and listening to young people, we combine insights with social action so that the problems we find can be transformed into meaningful change.
Our programme’s project-based learning model enables young people to identify key issues affecting their wellbeing, and then design and lead a social impact initiative as a solution.
