Support for CHILDREN 


At Ahead Of the Game Foundation, we understand the profound impact a parent's cancer diagnosis can have on children. Navigating through the emotional challenges that arise during such a difficult time can be overwhelming, and we are committed to providing comprehensive support. Our fully funded Child Counselling sessions are tailored to assist individuals aged 11 and below in coping with anxiety, depression, and other mental health concerns stemming from a parent's cancer diagnosis.

We extend an offer for your child to participate in our fully funded counselling sessions with Health & Wellbeing Practitioners Brighter Days Ahead, who specialise in Drawing and Talking therapy, Sand Play and group work.  

All sessions will be attended face to face at the Ahead Of Game Foundation Hub based in New Brighton or within the children's school. This can be tailored to the needs of each child and subject to availability.

Marie and Beverley are the founders of Brighter Days Ahead CIC Mental Health & Wellbeing Practice, providing services to Liverpool, Wirral and surrounding areas within the Merseyside and Cheshire region.

" We specialise in Drawing and Talking therapy, Sand Play and group work. We are committed to improving the mental health, well-being and positive outcomes for children, young people and adults alike.

Through our private practice we support individuals to explore and process difficult feelings and emotions. We do this using the technique of Drawing & Talking and Sand Play.

We have many years’ experience in supporting people who have endured challenging circumstances. We strongly believe in the benefits and positive impact that drawing and talking and sand play can have in supporting people to explore their inner world and feelings within. "

Drawing and Talking therapy is the number one alternative to CBT and direct talking therapies, which can often be confronting or limiting in the processing of pain or trauma.

People are twice as likely to use verbal communication to express their emotions whilst drawing, rather than directed questioning.

Our aim is to provide an alternative to traditional talking therapies, because sometimes, there are no words for what is going on in your mind and your heart.
