Value YOUth Project
#TheVYP - Developing Positive Self Concept in Young People
The project aims to work with young people aged 11 – 16 in fun, interactive ways in order to educate them about their Self-Concept and Mental Wellbeing. Our workshops will provide them with a deeper understanding of their emotions and awareness, not only of themselves but of others around them. Due to our bespoke nature, the project can be easily tailored to your students’ preferences and needs, including the integration into the school timetable...
Hi, I will be leading this project through each phase, from production to delivery, communicating with schools and ensuring the smooth running of the project. I'm an integrative psychotherapist with 4 years experience of working in the voluntary sector. I also have 7 years experience working with challenging behaviour in individuals from a range of different ages and abilities. My main area of work has been in autism and learning difficulties, however my experience as a psychotherapist also branches into childhood trauma, abuse, relationship difficulties, stress and anxiety. . I will be delivering training in the areas to our YOUth Mentors and providing staff with knowledge and support throughout the project.
Hello, my name is Amanda, I have engaged in various psychological domains including Developmental Psychology. I understand the detrimental impact that negative early life experiences can have on development and behaviour, alongside the importance of integrating such individuals into society. I have also worked alongside individuals of different ages during work experience in schools as well as working as a young leader in an extracurricular girls club. I am very much looking forward to being held responsible for the creation and delivery of this project, and to meet like-minded individuals who believe in the importance of positively impacting young people in school environments.
