Our Services

Time 4 Children provides one-to-one Emotional Listening Support for Children who find it hard to express their thoughts, feelings and worries safely and in positive ways. We do this with a team of dedicated Volunteer Practitioners.

Our Volunteer Practitioners are trained to ’listen’ to children using Non-Directive Play and Reflective Listening. Our Volunteer Practitioners give each child a weekly session where there is the time and space to explore their worries, fears, upsets or anxieties.

We pride ourselves on providing an exceptionally high standard of training to those who wish to become a Volunteer Practitioner for Time 4 Children. Our training is delivered one day a week for twelve weeks, amounting to sixty hours. Trainees who successfully complete the twelve days can then begin a supervised placement, initially supporting one child. After this, we expect our Volunteer Practitioners to commit their time with us for at least one year. Our training does not allow Volunteer Practitioners to practise on their own outside of Time 4 Children.
