Dandelion Time offers help to children with very challenging emotional issues, often resulting from trauma, violence or serious health difficulties in the family. Their approach is family based and creates opportunities and space to love and trust again.
Started in 2003 by Dr Caroline Jessel, the service recognises the importance of being in a peaceful natural environment, absorbing children in calming, hands-on activities. Therapists guide families to harness the healing powers of the natural world with a view to developing skills and aspirations for a brighter future and enabling the wider family to come together to build stronger bonds. Children grow in confidence and resilience and have achieved remarkable and long-lasting changes in their lives as a result of spending time at Dandelion Time.
