The service has capacity to offer 1-1 support to parents who are struggling to cope with the current challenges they are facing.

The Positivitree have also worked with Open Door Charity to introduce Creative Therapy sessions to our offer and are taking registrations for the four week ‘Colours’ programme which blends self-care methods with elements of cognitive behavioural therapy to enhance parental resilience. We will be accepting registrations to The Open Door Charity’s eight week C-CBT programme ‘Bazaar’ as soon as it is safe to deliver 1-1 face to face again. Parents will be matched with a peer-mentor to work through this innovative programme to improve their mental fitness.
The service is currently providing 5 group online support sessions per week. Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 12-2pm, Wednesday and Thursday 7-9pm. These sessions can be accessed by registering on the following link: Zoom support groups
Rachel Daley, Director of The Positivitree Ltd states;
‘Carers; have been sharing that they have felt amongst some of the most socially isolated members of society before the pandemic. This has become even more apparent in the last year. We have looked to create a genuinely supportive, inspiring and safe place for them to connect with their peers and navigate the challenges we are faced with.
Equally, we are looking for speakers from other organisations to share with us the offer available to our members and their families, if this is you we would love to hear from you.’
