Ofsted Outstanding



Emosi which means  ‘Emotion’  is our new therapeutic service developed here at Ellesmere Childrens Centre.  Emosi believes that children should be supported and encouraged from their earliest foundations to  be confident, resilient healthy holistic individuals.  Developing emotional literacy which supports children to make the connections between actions and describe what they are feeling in simple words that have meaning for them. As a ‘Emosi’ coach our work is to regulate the effects of varying feelings, rather than a system of behaviour modification. All behaviours we feel are linked to communication and children vocalising their world. Emosi is a place to transition through developmental stages at their own pace, in a  space to facilitate healthy, nurtured minds. Emosi  recognises that children's home lives are strong influences on their learning and is central to ways of being, knowing and doing. Emosi coaches will work in partnership with families and can effectively utilise children's family and cultural knowledge in an educational context to enhance children learning.

What can it do to help your child?

At Emosi we will be using the following techniques to help understand your child and his or her development. Using the methods below which are most suitable for your child.

The methods are listed below.

  • Filial therapy with children
  • Filial therapy with children and parent/carers
  • Attention autism sessions
  • Intensive interaction sessions
  • Picture exchange communication system (PECS) development

Filial Therapy Sessions

Filial Therapy is a special kind of play therapy that closely involves parents and carers. In keeping with our service ethics the new Centre will provide 
trans-cultural play therapy for local families with children aged 3—11; in time we hope it will become a City-wide service.

Filial Therapy usually lasts between 3—6 months but may last longer with follow up sessions. The therapy is taught to parents and followed through with support from a trained professional and can be provided in various ways to meet the circumstances of 
the child and parent/carer.
