Beam is a recently launched drop-in and IAPT service in Wolverhampton. Our aim is to provide children and young people up to the age of 18 (up to the age of 25 for care leavers or anyone with a disability), parents/carers & professionals with advice, signposting and support with any concerns relating to mental and emotional wellbeing.
At the drop-in our great team of Youth Workers, Therapists and trained Wellbeing Volunteers offer children and young people guidance and support with their mental and emotional health. We provide caring advice and guidance in particular areas including anxiety, anger, mood management and self-esteem. Located in comfortable surroundings, we have a variety of online resources that can be accessed, if young people just want to browse some information.
In our IAPT service our great team of therapists provide 1:1 therapy sessions which are on an appointment basis. This service supports children and young people with low level mental health problems. This is a brief therapy service where the young person and their therapist will explore the problem they're facing together and work through coping strategies over 4-6 sessions of structured therapy. There are also Wellbeing Workshops, ran by our therapists, that you can attend which will be targeted toward the problems you are facing. Access to our IAPT service are through referrals only. Please speak to your GP for a referral.
If you think Beam may be useful for you, your child, or a young person you are working with, feel free to drop-in. There is no need to book an appointment - you can simply drop in and start receiving support when you need it.
