Our Peer Mentoring Project offers young people from Hackney the opportunity to either become a Mentor (aged 18 to 25 years) that mentors younger people or that offers the opportunity for young people to be a Mentee matched with a mentor. If you are interested in becoming a Mentee, then you will live, work, or study in Hackney and be aged between 11 – 18 and be interested in improving personal goals and attending activities with an Off Centre Peer Mentor.
Our Youth Participation group offers young people the opportunity to participate in short term projects run at Off Centre by placing young people at the heart of decision making processes and enabling them to get their voice and ideas implemented. Young people taking part are supported to form their own working group and to define their own roles and responsibilities offering valuable experience of working through organisational projects. They are offered training and support to be actively involved in the development and implementation of the project priorities. A commitment to see each project through will be a requirement from those young people interested. Why not call us and see how you might be able to get involved?
You do not have to be good at art to do Art Therapy. It’s more about using art materials to express how you are feeling and to explore the issues and concerns that have led you to seek therapy. These could be current as well as things that relate to your past experiences. If you are unsure what to do, the Art Therapist can help you to get started, think about a theme or suggest materials. The Art Therapist is not there to analyse your work or tell you what it’s about, but the art making can help you tell your story or facilitate discussion about the issues that have bought you to Off Centre. For more information please visit our Art Therapy page or get in touch.
Dramatherapy offers a different way for you to communicate how you feel. Sometimes it can be difficult to talk directly about our problems, feelings and life experiences. Dramatherapy uses the process of storytelling, enactments, role-play, improvisation and movement to help find a different way to communicate what’s important. Dramatherapy also uses drama games, instruments and props, and offers time for verbal reflection. You and your Dramatherapist will find a way of working that best suits you personally. For more information visit our Dramatherapy page or get in touch.
Counselling offers a confidential space for you to explore feelings such as anger, grief, anxiety, disappointment, shame and sadness and may enable you to accept these feelings and understand them better in order to bring about positive change. For further information please visit our Get support page or get in touch.
