Make World Better

Child and Adolescent therapy

Growtherapy is an independent child and adolescent mental health and wellbeing project created to ‘Make World Better!’

We are committed to building adult capacity to support struggling children and young people by sharing information, training, and resources that are:



THE BIG IDEA: You don’t have to be a therapist to be therapeutic.

You don’t have to be an expert to be helpful to children and young people in distress (although experts and therapists are more than welcome!) The resources here are all easy to understand as well as being informed by research. Oh and nearly everything is FREE!



THE BIG QUESTION: Is it helpful?

If it’s helpful or useful then it is worth sharing – regardless of whether it is in the ‘right-sized’ box. Growtherapy is trans-disciplinary and trans-theoretical by design. That means information and resources shared are drawn from many different ways of working and helping. Growtherapy is a dogma-free zone!



THE BIG BELIEF: People are doing the best they can.

Kids, families, and staff are not ‘challenging’ or ‘struggling’ because they choose to be. Life can be challenging and we all respond to difficulty and distress in the best way we know how to at the time. Growtherapy shares information and resources that are trauma-informed and grounded in a social-justice perspective. With support, everyone has the potential to know better and do better, and that makes the world better!

Rambles, rants, & raves in the world of child & adolescent mental health & wellbeing!

Growtherapy World is all about reflection, dialogue, and discovery. Read a ramble to stimulate reflection; read a rant to engage in some dialogue; or read a rave to discover a new idea or resource. We would love to hear your thoughts and responses in the comments.
