Therapeutic Storytelling

The Education Futures Trust’s therapeutic storytelling programme supports young people to learn how to express and manage their emotions, to develop coping strategies and to become more resilient.



Through storytelling a child will:

•Develop cognitive, social and emotional literacy
•Gain new experiences of the world
•Gain new perspectives and insight about themselves and others
•Develop the imagination and in doing so develop the ability to ‘imagine’ and consider other possibilities
•Develop problem solving skills
•Become more resilient


“I was confused but as time went on I realised it was helping me with my self- esteem and confidence.”

“I learned to believe in myself.”
