Sparkle in the Light believes passionately that children and young people can recover from adverse experiences and become resilient, given the right care and therapeutic support from within a natural, nurturing and child-centred environment.

“ Your trauma is not who you are. It is something that was done to you or happened to you. Healing involves embracing and transforming the emotional pain so that out of that place of darkness can grow your own shimmering light .”

~ Dr Claudia Herbert

Consultancy

Sparkle in the Light offers a consultancy service to schools, local authorities or strategic groups on issues relating to the social, emotional and mental health needs of children and young people.

Social, Emotional & Mental Health
Pupils who have a low self-esteem and a poor sense of personal well being tend to be less engaged in their learning objectives. They spend more time and energy focused on the source of their inner distress and utilise energy to protect themselves from hurt, insecurely seeking or avoiding people or tasks, rather than using their energy to interact with their environment in a more meaningful way. This represents a significant barrier to their success in school, as well as their lifelong potential.
