Well-being

Feelings of well-being are fundamental to the overall health of an individual, enabling them to successfully overcome difficulties … A child’s well-being will be affected by the well-being of their parents so it is essential that parents take time for themselves in this respect.

Below are lots of different activities and links which I hope will help you to help your child/children and you to manage well-being during this difficult time. If you need any help at this time with your mental well-being, then don’t hesitate to get in touch and I will do what I can to help.
