What is Kids Inspire? Kids Inspire is a charity which offers therapy, counselling, mentoring and mediation to the troubled children and young people of Essex and Southend. Our aim is to empower them to become positive, valued members of their school and community.
Who Kids Inspire helps: The children and young people we work with may have lost their way, lack self esteem, or have suffered loss, trauma or abuse. They may be struggling with relationships, or dealing with exams without support from home. They may be excluded from school, be misunderstood, or lack an adult who puts them first. Some may be suffering with a diagnosable mental health problem, which can be frightening for both the young person and their family. Life is not always predictable and the way that we respond to situations beyond our control can sometimes surprise and worry those around us. In fact, our child and adolescent clients and their families may be just like you, but something has knocked them off their feet. In asking for help early enough, the risk of developing mental health issues in adulthood is reduced by 90%.
Children who are in need may be referred to Kids Inspire by schools, social services, GPs or their families. Some may be identified by us through our work in schools and the community; some may contact us directly.
How Kids Inspire makes a difference: Our support services include: complementary therapy; mediation; group therapy; psychotherapy; counselling; drama therapy; integrative arts psychotherapy; art therapy; music therapy; play therapy; systemic family therapy; social work; clinical supervision; parent support groups; training for young people, parents, teachers, and other professionals on a wide range of issues related to emotional well being and mental health; sports and activity-based therapies; and mentoring.
Through tailored packages of these services, we help children to explore, communicate and understand their feelings and experiences. In turn, this helps to heal wounds, build self-esteem, and enables young people and their families to make positive choices for their present and future lives.
