We Are Thrive
WE ARE THRIVE is a local, community interest company offering mental health and wellbeing therapies to individuals on a 1:1 or group basis, via workshops developed for families, schools and within a corporate setting across Uttlesford.
The Mental Health foundation state that ‘10% of children and young people (aged 5-16 years) have a clinically diagnosable mental health problem and that 70% of those experiencing these issues will not have had appropriate interventions at a sufficiently early age’.
Of course, a lot of the anxieties we experience as we are growing up are entirely natural and our own way of developing resilience and an understanding of the world around us. Multiple physical, emotional and social changes, including exposure to poverty, abuse or violence can however, make children and adolescents vulnerable to mental health problems and although we know that we can’t rescue our children at every juncture, being able to recognise the symptoms of ongoing concerns such as anxiety or depression and then being able to act upon that intuition as quickly as possible, is key to any issue not becoming a crisis.
From counselling, art and drama therapy to complementary therapies such as mindfulness, hypnotherapy and neuro-linguistic programming, we provide local, affordable and accessible therapies with outcomes such as improved self-esteem, self-worth, confidence, connectivity, resilience and optimism. By offering holistic help, we can help you find some balance to thrive and, knowing that mental health issues affect everyone across the community, we also offer reduced rates for those who are unable to justify the cost.
So, please don’t wait until things have reached crisis point, contact our friendly team today. After all, we believe that going to see a counsellor or therapist when you’re feeling down or overwhelmed should be as normal as going to see the doctor when you have the flu.
