What should your kids be reading that will set their imaginations alight and help them make sense of their world? Our bibliotherapists will guide you to the best age-appropriate books for your child.
Children are shaped as much by the stories they read (and hear) as by the events of real life around them. Many of us would like our kids to read the books we ourselves loved when we were small.
But whether they're at the picture book stage or reading young adult novels, today's children demand books that relate to their current world too. Our bibliotherapists will help you select the best books for your child - whether it's a story about moving house, bullying or bereavement; or simply a literary wonder that no-one should miss out on at this enchanted time of life.
Our bibliotherapists specialise in works of fiction but also prescribe select works of philosophy, poetry and other creative non-fiction. They give one to one sessions, and run group sessions. They've appeared extensively in the UK and international press, and have spoken at festivals around the country.
Sessions can take place in-person or remotely via phone or skype. You will be asked to complete a questionnaire in advance of the session. You'll be given an instant prescription to take-away. Your full prescription will follow within a couple of days.
