Social, emotional and mental health difficulties
Seedlings is a therapeutic service based in 120 primary schools across Liverpool. Delivered in partnership by CAMHS providers: PSS - Spinning World and the Young Person’s Advisory Service (YPAS). Seedlings at Banks Road is funded by Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group and Banks Road. The Seedlings team works with primary school children to explore and process feelings that are troubling them and develop confidence in expressing themselves.
Sometimes when children are growing up, changes at home or at school can be difficult to deal with. The Seedlings team support the emotional needs of children allowing them to develop, grow and to build their resilience. Difficult feelings can affect relationships with important people in our lives, when these feelings are expressed in therapy it becomes easier to understand and make sense of them.
Qualified therapists provide a range of support that is age appropriate and tailored to what each child needs. This includes both 1:1 sessions and group work that can use a range of techniques including:
• Talking therapies
• Arts therapies
• Support and advice for families
• Providing education and resources to help staff deal with difficult emotional issues
Our Seedlings therapist is called Naomi Bateren. She is a Psychological Therapist based at PSS, 18 Seel Street in Liverpool. Naomi will work with Banks Road each week.
