At the Tranquil Treehouse®, we are passionate about nurturing, developing and empowering children physically, mentally and emotionally. However, there are lots of circumstances children encounter which can mean that they are at a higher risk to develop some form of emotional disorder. These can include; parents divorcing or separating, children living with domestic violence, young carers, children suffering from depression, bereavement, children in care, parents who have a severe, terminal or mental illness, loss of a pet, change of school or home etc. However, all children at some stage or another will feel strong emotions and struggle to deal with them. In today's fast-paced and often 'harsh' world, children need to be given time to think, create, play and imagine in a safe environment.


Through the Tranquil Treehouse® stories, children will learn to recognise and name the emotion they are feeling and then learn strategies to help cope with it. The stories are a non-threatening way to develop their own emotional wellbeing and important life skills. These include; self-control, turn-taking, impulse control, communication, decision-making, coping with peer pressure, regulating emotions, problem-solving, peer acceptance and how to apply this knowledge to changing social and domestic situations. By listening to the experiences of the characters, the children are more willing to open up and discuss similar situations or viewpoints. The messages in these narratives are memorable and can be used both in the classroom and at home. We can deliver whole class lessons, small-group workshops or one-to-one sessions with our stories.
