Counselling

Posted on: February 26th, 2021 by Steph Dickinson No Comments

Thanks to an incredible community-crowdfunding effort we are now able to offer free counselling for young people aged 13-18.

This provision has been put in place to support the long-term recovery of young people due to the traumatic events of 2020.

You can refer a young person by completing this form and returning it to info@piefactorymusic.com:

PFM referral form – Counselling

Our counsellors are not only able to support young people in with their general emotional health and wellbeing, but also have skills and expertise to help young people navigate racial trauma, identity, gender and sexuality.

We believe that it may take a long time to recover from the challenges and trauma of 2020. This offer of free counselling for young people in East Kent one way that we can ensure that no one is left to navigate their recovery alone.

We understand that in order to build confidence some young people benefit greatly from 1:1 or small group work before accessing our wider programme. We provide tailored sessions for children and young people, which aim to:

Improve Confidence

Develop Creative Skills

Develop and Identify areas of Strength in Themselves and Others

Realise Potential

Take Positive Steps towards Personal Development

Develop skills in emotional literacy and creative capacity

Past sessions have included songwriting, recording, music tech,  dance, cookery, DIY, arts & crafts and various sports – we will be as flexible as possible to accommodate each young person’s needs.
