Emotional Literacy Support Assistants

Our Emotional Literacy Support Assistants (ELSA) are trained to support children in helping them to understand and cope with their feelings.

In particular our ELSA can help children with:

  • Recognising their Emotions
  • Emotional Wellbeing
  • Social Skills
  • Friendship skills
  • Anger Management
  • Loss and bereavement

Children will be seen in small groups or individually and activities will be tailored to that group or child. Sessions are fun and might include role play, puppets, board games, art and stories.

Please feel free to contact Ms. Nicol if you have any questions.
