Training

Mosaics-Of-Life Therapies offers training opportunities for staff working directly with children, young people and families as well as for parents who are interested in developing their knowledge and awareness of some key topics. Trainings can be commissioned and tailor-made to suit the needs of your staff and organisation.

Children cannot leave their trauma at the school gates:

Systemic approach to healing in learning environments

This training is based on my  presentation at the BACP CYPF Conference on Trauma, Healing and Hope- breaking the cycle and promoting healing (March 2023).

It has been redesigned for teachers and mental health professionals to attend together, in order to promote systemic, joint thinking on how to best support one another in accompanying children and young people in their healing journeys.
