Mentoring

MindJam offers emotional support and guidance for children and adolescents through gaming and game design. It is important to recognise and understand that many children have additional emotional needs that are not always met by traditional means. At a young age, these needs can sometimes feel overwhelming and often isolating.

At MindJam, our aim is to support children who suffer anxiety, stress, social issues and other emotional needs. We are experienced in working with children with ASD, ADHD, Trauma, PDA and children who have been adopted. MindJam uses gaming, coding and game creation, digital music and digital art, as a platform to develop positive play, problem solving and social and technical skill development, through friendly, positive and low-demand sessions. These activities are great for relieving stress and anxiety and have been shown to greatly benefit mental health and cognitive development.

We’re proud to work with: Autism Champions, Asend, A2E Surrey CC, alternative provision for Essex CC and North Yorkshire CC, NHS Kent, Oxfordshire CC, Vale of Glamorgan CC, Cornwall CC, Cambridge CC, Nottinghamshire CC, Hertfordshire CC, Red Balloon Learner Center, and many other specialist schools and councils Also, we were a nominated finalist for Bafta Mentor of the Year 2021 and are nominated for the National Diversity Awards 2022.

Counselling

Being a parent to a neurodivergent child or a child suffering anxiety can often be challenging, stressful and isolating. We believe it is vitally important to look after your own mental health to be the best support for your child. We are now proud to offer counselling for parents with one of our excellent counsellors. If you would like to enquire about sessions please get in touch for more information.

We'd love to hear from you.
