MyTime Cumbria

What we do

My Time is part of the CAMHS service provision for children and young people needing emotional health and wellbeing support. MyTime work with mild to moderate emotional health presentations such as anger, anxiety, low mood, self-harm and depression. MyTime practitioners work by putting the young person at the heart of the intervention and focus on what they do well as well as what they have in their power to change, calling on the various systems such as family and schools, to support the desired changes.

We offer support through various therapeutic interventions:

Counselling: 6-8 sessions where the young person can talk about issues affecting their emotional wellbeing. Therapists work within the CSSO model but will integrate various approaches such as person centred, CBT interventions and creative techniques.

Play Therapy Techniques: a form of counselling or psychotherapy in which play is used as a means of helping children express or communicate their feelings.

Decider Skills: a structured CBT based programme of effective, fun and easy to use ways of understanding and managing emotions. Young people learn how to build strategies for their mental wellbeing in everyday life, encouraging to be proactive in deciding how to react to emotions positively.
