About our service 

Trafford Sunrise provides support for children aged 5-12 years in coping with difficult feelings and/or behavioural difficulties and promoting emotional wellbeing. We also provide some support for parents.

Across six weekly sessions, our Working Together groups aim to help children develop emotional resilience, learn coping strategies, and increase their self-esteem and social engagement with the support of their parents and carers. 

Individual Sessions:

Individual therapy sessions are available for children who may require additional support with their emotional health and wellbeing.

For Parents & Carers:

Our Parent Workshops aim to provide parents with a space to talk and share ideas around supporting their children. Parents will also be able to learn more about children's mental health and wellbeing, including: parental separation, anxiety, bullying, and behavioural difficulties.
