Aleph Therapeutic Learning; mental health in education, at work and in community life

Aleph Therapeutic Learning was developed by Carrie Gaye, and is based in Brixham, Devon.

A low income should not exclude anyone from receiving a service that can contribute positively to their education or well-being, and I now provide most services for a donation-only fee. Please call or email with your requirements. Charitable and Voluntary organisations are also welcome to call or email, to discuss making Aleph’s services affordable.

Children and young people:  

Mental and emotional well-being is never separate from learning or from society – each of these create the whole. Aleph provides training that shares engaging and effective ways for children and young people to develop their literacy and communication skills, while enabling them to understand the influences of the world that they live in. Despite the seriousness of these issues, Aleph’s principles and approaches are designed to create an anxiety-free, enjoyable learning experience, where innate ability can be uncovered. Please click on ‘About Aleph’ and ‘How this is different’ in the menu bar.

Young people over sixteen and adults:  

Aleph offers workshops that are designed to develop ability and creativity in literacy.  (‘Confidence at Last!’) Other workshops explore the elements that make for mental and emotional well-being in young people and adults. (‘Our Words, Our Senses, Our Health’.)  You can contact me directly to discuss one of these workshops.

Head teachers, parents and guardians:  

Aleph invites you to create a school environment that exemplifies a commitment to mental and emotional well-being. Please ask for a free workshop where we can discuss this life-changing and society-changing possibility.

School life: 

Perhaps some of the following concerns seem familiar. If they do, please click on ‘About Aleph’ and ‘How this is different’ in the menu bar.

A young person –

  • Just ‘switches off’ when it comes to written tasks and assignments
  • Doesn’t understand the topic and can’t cope with the homework
  • Has been assessed as having learning difficulties, but you feel sure they could be doing better and feeling happier
  • Struggles to express what they know in writing
  • Has difficulty in sequencing and retention of instructions
  • Has a tummy ache every Monday and wants to stay away from school

What the Aleph approach can do –

  • Help a young person to feel comfortable with learning tasks and with their current level of progress
  • Relate topics to a young person’s own perspectives and experience
  • Tap into a young person’s natural ability – it’s there
  • Develop confident and imaginative use of language
  • Use enjoyable activities to enhance understanding of sequencing and instructions
  • Help you to have better awareness of problems and better communication with those involved in a young person’s education
