The SPACE programme provides SEMH support in schools and within outdoor locations through one to one and group, person-centred support sessions.
Promoting empathy and unconditional positive regard, we aim to provide young people with physical SPACE; creative SPACE and HeadSPACE.
By bringing together young people in a supported, safe, and collaborative environment to physically explore the outdoors whilst also exploring who they are personally.
With a focus on key areas such as self-awareness; dealing with stress and self-care to boost both personal development and mental wellbeing.
A typical SPACE programme usually consists of 6 weekly 2 hour sessions covering:
Inspiration & motivation
Self-regulation and anxiety
The benefits of being outdoors
Communication and cooperation
Personalities and relationships
Wellbeing – the ‘happy chemicals’
All sessions are led by a trainee counsellor and a qualified teacher.
The initial sessions centre on how to work collaboratively; on the sense of self, and illustrating the need for and practices of self-care.
Although, our central ethos is that the participants are the experts of their own lives and what they’re experiencing – even if at times they might struggle to tell us that - we aim to guide them in a direction to independently take control of their emotions and aspirations.
