Mental Health Education Services
EmpowerUp provides mental health education services for a wide range of people from different backgrounds. Part of the service also include early interventions for common mental health difficulties like depression, anxiety and behavioural difficulties.
On a one to one or group basis Regina Tipping, a trained education mental health practitioner, uses evidenced based cognitive behavioural therapies (CBT) underpinned by improving access to psychological therapies (IAPT) and principles to provide bespoke support.
Other services include consultation with school staff, audits, creative workshops for teenagers, and parent led CBT.
What Regina enjoys most is the teaching side of the services which brings out the fun creative side of her teaching skills. With a background in classroom teaching, Regina enjoy adapting and creating resources to suit everyone's learning style, including special needs. Regina is also a trained therapeutic art life coach so exploring difficult feelings through art even for those who are not pro artists is fun.
Regina is a mum of teenagers and understands first hand how challenging it can be for both parents and young people to navigate through the barriers of life. She has written blogs which you might find helpful.
The website is a work in progress where you are sure to find helpful information and dates of up coming training.
