Trafford Sunrise provides support for children aged 5-12 years in coping with stress, learning how to relax and promoting emotional wellbeing.
We support parents in learning about their child’s emotional wellbeing. Groups are available across the Trafford borough.
Trafford Sunrise also reaches out to local providers, such as community organisations, to provide training and resources to support the identification of children’s emotional health and wellbeing problems and to reduce stigma and discrimination.
I can't enthuse enough about how brilliant these group sessions have been!

Working Together Groups
Children are able to access group sessions where they can develop their coping skills. This includes increasing emotional resilience, learning coping strategies, and increasing self-esteem and social engagement. The sessions are designed in line with the latest research surrounding children’s emotional health and wellbeing.
Individual therapy sessions with children are available to those who may require extra support surrounding their emotional wellbeing.

Half-day training sessions are available to all professionals. You can also find out further information about our services.
Parents are invited to attend group sessions where they can obtain support using evidence-based parenting techniques. We focus on identifying emotional difficulties, supporting their children, and enhancing existing coping strategies.

Warm, welcoming atmosphere… all of the children were listened to. I appreciated the parental involvement in the children’s groups.
