therapeutic interventions

Aimee offers  a range of evidence-based interventions for children and young people. Where possible,  she works alongside staff as co-facilitators, to train them to deliver the intervention, thus building the school's capacity to improve outcomes for children and young people.

Motivational interviewing

Motivational Interviewing (MI) costs £70 per hour. Usually 4 to 6 sessions are recommended. MI aims to promote behaviour change by helping students to clarify their hopes and goals, and to explore any ambivalence or resistance to change.

emotional regulation

A ten session emotional regulation intervention, delivered on a small group basis, costs £2750. This includes training and weekly support sessions for co-facilitators. Students are taught strategies from cognitive behaviour therapy, which aim to build resilience and reduce anxiety.
.breathe mindfulness curriculum

This is a four-session programme aimed at the school 'transition’ years of ages 9-14. It can be taught as part of a broader Personal, Health, Social and Economic Education (PSHE) curriculum or as part of a ‘transition-specific’ programme in Years 5-9. 

 

As part of this, .breathe offers an opportunity for students to ‘dip their toes in mindfulness’, exploring the ways in which this might support them through the highs and lows of adolescent life. In particular, .breathe explores issues around:

  • Working with the capacity of attention; exploring how we can work with a wandering mind.

  • Why humans worry, and how to support ourselves when we do so.

  • Sleep – why it is important and what to do if we struggle to sleep well.

  • Being with others – the opportunities and challenges of working skilfully with friendships and other relationships, both in person and online

 
For all targeted interventions, pre and post measures are used to evaluate impact. Interventions would usually form part of  a holistic plan for the child or young person, and would build on the support provided by teachers and support staff in school i.e. high quality teaching and universal provision.
