Don't miss our official opening. You may have heard that we have just moved into the GALLERY on Broad street in Barry. Make sure you are one of the first to see it open in it's new capacity
We believe that you are the expert in your own lives. We believe that if you feel you need support you should get it, without hav. That is why you do not not to be referred by a GP or any other services to us. You can book directly onto courses for yourself & your children. Or drop us a message and we will be in touch
Through the arts we offer a safe, trauma sensitive environment
which provide opportunities for individuals to express themselves, learn new skills and
improve their well-being.
Our workshops are fun and therapeutic.
We recognise that the participants are the experts of their own lives.
We listen, offer choices and a new way of seeing things.
The sessions bring people together, we teach mindfulness and other relaxation techniques, discuss support networks and healthy daily routines. We explore positive relationships, how to support others around us and promote self care.
We offer different art forms for creative expression e.g. creative writing, art, digital storytelling, photography,…
Our approach is person-centred, there is no right or wrong way, we go at the pace of the individuals in the group and give them space to be creative.
Finding their creative flow, helps people to realise their strength and increases their self-esteem. During the project participants take control over their creative process, learn new coping mechanisms and find purposeful engagement.
The development of these workshops has been a personal search towards meaningful interventions. I am looking for opportunities to share my experience, collaborate and develop good, sustainable practice to improve the wellbeing of individuals.

This is for parents and carers who are looking at ways to understand and supporting emotional intelligence and regulation in children and young people. It explains the brain, brain development and many of the key stages of development that help support their emotions. The training is done through a 3 hour workshop.
This workshop is aimed at parents/carers who might be experiencing:
Is your child struggling with their emotions?
Are they having 'meltdowns' or 'temper tantrums'?
Is your child aggressive?
Does your child hit, kick, spit or hurt you or other people?
Is your child really withdrawn?
Do they try to avoid going out? school? socialising? trying new groups/activities?
Do they complain about a bad belly or head?
Would you like to be able to support them to be calm and confident? To be able to express themselves safely.
It can be a very stressful and exhausting experience supporting children who are struggling with their emotions. There is no 'magic cure' but some knowledge can be very powerful.
In this workshop you will learn:
The basic neuroscience and the key to what underpins mental health.
The importance of your role.
How to deepen your connection and relationship.
How to set boundaries.
Strategies and skills to use at home, to help support their emotions and create a happy, calm and confident child.
In this workshop we look at:
What we bring to a situation?
What is going on?
What is behind the behaviour?
How to support and connect with your child/ren and bring calmness into any situation

‘Stay together safely or break apart amicably’
Couples work is facilitated by Max and Tammi, a Life Coach and Psychotherapist with many years’ experience in the field. Facilitation can help when sometimes it seems that what ever you say or try in your relationship doesn’t seem to work. Frustration can set in and it’s easy for things to get hurtful.
EIC can help to re-establish positive communication, work through issues and get things back on track. Or if to break apart amicably if that is what is best for you as a couple..
The foundations to a family is relationship. Whilst our 3 hour workshop might be just what you need to help get some new strategies, you may feel that what you and your children need is to improve the relationship. To be able to communicate openly and honestly. To set solid foundations, not just to support the challenges you are facing now but to improve the future. This is a 10 session course that is based on PACE and Relationship Based Play principles. How to speak a child's language of play. Bring you closer together.
What do we cover?
*When and how to praise
*How to meet your child's needs
*Family Values - what are they and how to implement them
*How to deal with BIG emotions
*How to use play/creative expression as a form of communication
*How to communicate when there are no words
Max our life coach will support you on your journey. Taking time to explore what is going on in your life and looking at ways to support you to make changes and take action to create the life you want.
If you book onto any of the groups run by Max he will touch base with you first and may do a few 1:1's before joining the group
We offer a 1:1 service for children and young people. These are typically 30-40 mins long and can be tailored to your child's individual needs around problems and emotional challenges they may be experiencing. These may be between 6-12 session. This will be discussed and progress reviewed throughout. We do recommend where possible to join a community class. Either before or after the 1:1.
Here at the CUBE we are passionate about supporting children and young people's mental health. Our groups are kept small to allow chance to explore and express what the are experiencing. Normally around 6 per group. What can you expect?
In every course we always teach them about the brain. Helping them to understand how their brain works and why they are experiencing big emotions is a vital part of their learning. Each course covers different topics and therefore will cover different content. In each course we also explore grounding exercise and healthy coping strategies.
As we have been working in the community for a while, we felt it was important to let the community have their say on our services.
This survey is completely anonymous.
If you have used our services in anyway, whether you have joined:
The creative wellbeing group
Woman’s support group
Woman’s coaching group
Parent/Carers workshops or listening circles
Children’s and young people’s wellbeing groups
We would like you to have your say.
This isn’t only important to us, to make sure we are meeting the needs of the community but surveys like this can help us with future funding applications, which allows us to continue to offer everything at no cost to those accessing the service.
It is 9 questions and will take around 3-5mins.
