So what would i be doing? 

Well that's very much up to you! 

Wellbeing practitioners for Children and young people (WP-CYPs) are trained to work with young people and families experiencing mild to moderate Depression (low mood), Anxiety (fears and worries) and Behavioural difficulties in children under 10. 

In your first session, you will help your wellbeing practitioner to get a good understanding of the difficulties you have been experiencing, how this is impacting or changing your life, and what you would like to be different. Together you will explore the different therapies and ways of working - telephone, online, or face to face - that feel right for you. 

Your wellbeing practitioner will then support you over the course of 8 sessions, to work towards the changes that you want to make. Think of it the same way as you would a personal trainer  - just for your emotional wellbeing.. We know that our methods work, but you will also need to put in the practice to get the results!
