Spiral is seeking signatures from the community to support our funding applications, for expansion of our services. The service is to prevent the effects bullying can have on children, young people, and families.  The three new services will be:

1) Walk talk therapy integrated in with counselling - Understanding of the situation and that it is not their fault, learning techniques to manage their anxiety by trying different techniques and finding which work for them. 

2) Creative therapy - It allows the child/young person to be more self-reflective; the therapist guides them in their reflection, perhaps introducing new perspectives. The use of creative therapy allows children/young people to positively reflect on themselves and to understand their perceived strengths, building up their concept of self.

3) Family support - When a child/young person is depressed and/or suffering from anxiety, it effects the whole family, offering family support will improve family communication and build stronger relationships

Outcomes from these additional services are:

1)  To decrease anxiety and/or depression, allowing a child/young person to have more flexibility in their thoughts and behaviour. Developing this flexibility is an important part of resilience, flexibility allows a child/young person to deal with difficult situation and adapt to changes around them.

2)  Increased self-confidence and self-esteem. Will set realistic goals, learn useful skills and undertake tasks to achieve aspirations. children/young people with low self-esteem are often unable to set realistic goals: they’re conscious of ‘never being good enough’ and compare themselves unfavourably towards others.

3)  Increased resilience. Resilience is the ability to overcome difficulties and bounce back to a healthy place and adapt to an ever changing environment, whilst maintaining their emotional well-being. As young individuals and as a family.
