The Thrive approach offers practical strategies and techniques and is built around online assessments which identify children’s emotional development and provides action plans for their individual needs.
Research has shown that how we behave is linked to how we feel and our emotions are linked to how we learn. By teaching children to recognise and notice these feelings and emotions it can help with their development and learning.
Children sometimes need some extra support with their emotional growth and this can be temporary or over a longer period of time.
Thrive promotes their emotional and social growth by building positive relationships between a child and their peers and helps them explore and understand their feelings through various activities.

The session may be on an individual basis or as part of a small group of children. During each session there will be an activity which may include:

The Compass Phoenix service is for those children and young people who may benefit from receiving early help and prevention of harm work in relation to mild to moderate emotional wellbeing and mental health issues. The aim of the service is to improve outcomes for children and young people’s mental health by strengthening the range of mental health support available to children and young people.
They are able to offer one-to-one and group work support and interventions for children and young people aged 9-19, with mild to moderate mental health issues. Their dedicated team help young people make sustainable lifestyle changes in order to improve their long-term health, resilience and emotional wellbeing, reduce risk to themselves and others and equip them to reach their potential.
If you are worried about your child and think they are struggling with their mental health, then their caring and dedicated team can meet you face-to-face or support you on the phone or by an online video call.
