Life can be challenging, and it’s essential to develop skills to cope with distressing situations. Our DBT skills programme empowers teens to manage their emotions effectively, fostering resilience in the face of adversity.

Emotion Regulation

Understanding and controlling emotions is vital for mental well-being. Our programme provides strategies for teens to regulate their emotions, leading to healthier responses and improved overall mental health.

Interpersonal Relationships

Healthy relationships are fundamental to happiness and success. Our programme helps teens develop the skills needed to build and maintain positive and respectful relationships.

Movement & Dance

We are excited to announce a thrilling collaboration between Glenbrook Practice and Silent Mania where we combine music and dance to our Step-upp programmes for teenagers.

Why is this collaboration so significant? The power of movement, especially when accompanied by music, can have a tremendous impact on mental health. Here’s why:

1. Boosts Mood: Engaging in physical activity releases endorphins, also known as “happy hormones,” which can instantly uplift your mood.

2. Reduces Stress: Dancing and moving to music can be a powerful stress reliever, allowing you to channel stress and anxiety into positive energy.

3. Enhances Cognitive Function: Rhythmic activities can improve memory, concentration, and coordination.

4. Social Benefits: Group activities like dancing foster a sense of community, enhance social skills, and help build lasting friendships.
