About Spinning World
Spinning World provides a safe place for you to explore the challenges you have experienced. On your first visit you will meet and get to know your therapist. You will talk about what you need and how your therapist can help you. Your therapist will try and learn about your culture and what is important to you. Your therapist will continue to meet with you once a week and will work alongside you, supporting you to make sense of your thoughts and feelings and the events you have experienced.
How will this service help me?
You are in control of the sessions and can decide whether you want help with you feel in the present or when you feel safe enough, the therapist can help you deal with and process your past experiences.
Your therapist will listen when you want to talk but talking is not the only way to express yourself. Your therapist will support you to explore and express yourself creatively. They will support you with culturally sensitive therapeutic activities that promote healing and resilience.
