What is Supporting You?
Supporting You is a group programme of seven weekly sessions where you will learn strategies to support you to reduce stress, anxiety and low mood in a fun and safe environment. This programme will give you the tools to build your resilience and maintain positive emotional wellbeing.

What happens at Supporting You sessions?
You will learn how to use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) tools that will help you feel better able to deal with the challenges you face in daily life. These tools have been shown to help people remain calm, reduce stress and, with practice, feel happier. You'll also learn a method for planning how to achieve goals. The sessions are designed to be effective, fun and memorable!

Is this right for you?
This programme is for 11-17 year-olds who have noticed that they can sometimes feel stressed, anxious or sad in situations that normally don’t cause them or others to feel bad. This programme is for you if you would like to learn how to manage your emotions so you can control them and they don’t control you.

This programme is not recommended for people who have significant issues with stress, anxiety or depression and are receiving other counselling or therapeutic support as we would not wish for this to affect support you may already have in place.

You may feel nervous or shy but our professional and supportive youth workers understand this and will work with you.
