Big Talk Education

One to One Relationship and Sex Education

Sometimes a child or young person can benefit from some additional one to one support and guidance.

Where Schools or Parents have concerns as to a child's understanding or interpretation of things around them, they can be referred to us for an individual One to One sessions. This can be due to a whole range of circumstances; it could be something the child has seen or heard in real life, on TV or online which they don't fully understand. This may manifest itself in inappropriate sexualised behaviour or language being used in school or elsewhere. We are able to ensure the child receives the correct age appropriate information in a gentle and calm way, so that they can continue to relate to their peers in a way that is socially acceptable.

We initially recommend 2 x 60-minute sessions (plus sometime with the Parent(s) or Carer(s) if the child is at Primary School). In 90% of cases this is sufficient to get the child back on track. If the issues are deeper rooted, we will discuss a future plan at this stage.

We always recommend early intervention, where an issue is ignored or shelved it tends to compound over time! 

To initiate the referral process please call us one 01724 782618.

We will ask some questions to get an understanding of the individual situation of the child or young person. We will then advise on a plan of action and send out a written quote if required. As we understand that One to One work is generally due to an immediate issue prevailing we give this priority and endeavour to see the child or young person initially within a week.

 

                                                 

 

Example Case Studies

 

“Kyle” aged 7 attending a Primary School, causing problems in School touching his classmates and sometimes Staff inappropriately, no understanding of personal boundaries. Later discovered Kyle had been exposed to illegal material which had confused him. We helped Kyle learn what were private areas and why, both for him and others. Now enjoys his free time at School and other children happy to be around him

 “Suzy” aged 8, her father discovered she had been groomed on line by adult males who posed as her “special friends”. She was encouraged to take photos of herself and share them. As she had received no relationship and sex education at School she was completely unaware of the dangers and therefore vulnerable. Intensive work with Suzy enabled her to catch up to an age appropriate level to help her keep safe on and off line. Her School also participated in our “SRE: Whole School Approach” Programme

 “Cameron” aged 14 has missed a lot of time from School due to his dysfunctional family, Cameron thinks he knows all about sex, unfortunately he doesn’t! His information has come from a variety of streams, other boys, social media, porn sites etc. One to one is the best way to address Cameron’s needs as his male bravado would find it difficult to function in a group at his age and stage. Individual work means he can gain trust and confidence to go through age appropriate resources and eventually ask questions. We work with dozens of 'Camerons', they come along initially reluctantly, then want to know the truth about sex, followed then by the intricacies of relationships!

This is just a tiny selection, our one to one work covers all manner of circumstances, please contact us for more information.
