Aleph Therapeutic Learning; Education, Mental Health and Community

Thank you for visiting. My name is Carrie Gaye. I devised and continue to develop Aleph Therapeutic Learning, which is based in Brixham, Devon.  Many of the services that I provide to the local community come with negotiable fees, and some can be covered by donation alone. 


Mental and emotional well-being.  In these workshops we look at what we can do to to enhance our well-being in educational settings, at work, and in daily life. We also acknowledge the kinds of circumstances that reduce our well-being, and see how we can challenge those wherever possible. Please click on ‘All services’ in the menu bar for further information.

Confidence at Last!  A workshop for young people aged ten years and upward. Through an imaginative literacy activity, young people can gain the confidence to widen their vocabulary and enjoy the process of learning. This workshop can also be made bespoke to the needs of the young people you support. Please click on ‘All services’ in the menu bar for further information.

Literacy and the young person’s world.  Aleph shares principles and approaches that can help you to engage children and young people in developing their literacy and communication skills, while enabling them to consider and discuss the influence of the world they live in. Compassion and respect for the learner are essential in any educational process and Aleph shows how these can create a foundation for self-esteem. Please see various options in the menu bar for further information.  

Creative writing workshops.  Writing about things that have meaning for us can open the heart and bring a feeling of peace. In these workshops a range of beautiful photographs, objects from the natural world and quality art materials encourage our imagination. The workshops are suitable for participants of any age. Please click on ‘All services’ in the menu bar for further information.

Therapeutic activities for people living with cognitive difficulties. A two-hour workshop that shares therapeutic and creative activities for people living with dementia or other cognitive impairment. Offering new ideas with sensitivity can enable people to enjoy activities that they have never tried, and hidden abilities can often come to light. Also see Creative Life – services provided directly to those who are living with cognitive impairment. Please click on ‘All services’ in the menu bar for further information.

Opal Heart; Living with the loss of a child. Those who have lost a child of any age will be warmly welcomed at a monthly gathering in Brixham.  Please click on ‘All services’ in the menu bar for further information.
