Hands On Play Therapy has developed a program of manageable micro adventures designed to reduce anxiety, increase confidence and encourage positive lifestyle choices. Everyone deserves fun!
All our adventures are designed to include a physical activity that brings a change to mental health and emotional well-being. This may be due to the sensory input during the activity (similar to occupational therapy) or due to placing the young person in a less stressful environment away from the pressures of school and peers.
The young person, working with an experienced learning mentor, can lower their anxiety by spending more time outdoors, increasing their exercise levels, developing positive relationships, and learning tools to improve self- regulation.
Adventures might include Kayaking, Long Boarding, Hiking, Balance Boarding, Bouldering, River Clean Up's, Musical Mentoring and many more.
Support will be provided by an experienced learning mentor, Guy Higgins. He has delivered group and individual interventions supporting vulnerable children and young people for over ten years across both mainstream and specialist settings. He holds a current DBS certificate and Professional Liability Insurance as well as Level 2 Safeguarding. His work is enhanced by monthly supervision and adheres to ethical guidelines established by PTUK.
