Here at Transcend Children's Centre we provide one to one and group sessions for children who are very much in need of help right now. Children aged 10 or above are referred to us by outside organisations such as refuges, schools, Youth Offenders Team, the Police and other organisations.
These sessions involve coaching, counselling, healing and social support and we match each individual child to the right Therapist to help them on their journey, to show them a better way of being and that a better life is ahead.
The Global Burden of Disease Study 2010 concluded that the most predominant mental health problems worldwide, across all ages and genders, are depression and anxiety. It is the largest single source of world economic burden, with an estimated global cost of £1.6 trillion.
In the UK, the Mental Health Foundation states 75% of all mental health problems are established by age 18. 50% by age 14 and 75% by age 24. 75% of young people aren’t receiving treatment and 10% have a clinically diagnosable mental problem, yet 70% have not had appropriate interventions at a sufficiently early age.
In Swindon there were 48,600 under 18s, 22.5% of the population  and this is projected to increase to 58,300 . By 2037 the Office for National Statistics estimates Swindon’s 0-19 year olds are projected to increase by 17.5% compared to the rest of England at 9.3%.
Here at Transcend Children's Centre we use the TRANSCEND PROGRAMME® to help children to enjoy better mental health from an earlier age and to prepare them for life. We really listen, very hard, to what they are trying to express about their problems, issues and concerns. We then work together with them to develop a set of personally tailored tools and positive self-beliefs to empower them to transform their own lives.
Childhood mental health disorders can have high levels of persistence and those affected are 3.5 times more likely than others to suffer depression or anxiety disorders into adulthood. Not to mention a higher risk of addiction, criminality, self-harm, poorer career and economic opportunities.
We are a CIC and source funding for these sessions from the community, corporate organisations and charities so we can offer 'free' programmes to the ones who need it most.
