Mind Mates is a playful and relaxed program for 8-10 year olds, which aims to help children develop skills that increase emotional resilience and capacity to handle life’s ups and downs. These skills include self-acceptance, creative problem-solving, healthy relationship skills, and healthy self-talk. We use art, play, movement and creativity along the way to make the learning fun.
Mind Mates is great for kids who struggle with shyness, confidence, worries, decision-making, getting upset easily or handling uncertainty and change.
The program is suitable for most kids who attend mainstream school, and is designed to be effective for children from all cultures and backgrounds. If you’re not sure whether it’s the right program for your child, or if your child has special needs, call us and we can help you decide. The Mind Mates group program is run by an energetic team of experienced mental health professionals who have specialist expertise in working with children.
