You can book the Smash Life Mentoring in blocks of one hour sessions for a minimum of ten sessions. This allows time to build up a trusting relationship with the young person in order for them to move forward, to overcome some of the obstacles that they may be facing (having either been identified in the initial referral or as a result of the young person opening up to us).

You can book further block sessions with us after the initial ten mentoring sessions but we will be asking the young person and professionals, carers also working and supporting that young person what the overall aim is going to be before agreeing to these .

Smash Life also provide reports for an additional small cost for every session we work with alongside the young person in question. This can to be shared with the referer, professionals or organisations working alongside that young person. We believe here at Smash Life that communication between professionals is very important for sharing positive outcomes, concerns and so that everyone is aware of the work being done.

We now also offer an NOCN Smash Life accreditation which we can complete with the young people alongside our fun mentoring sessions- Please note this qualification is offered to young people aged 11-18 years of age. This accreditation will incur an extra charge on top of our mentoring fees to cover all admin fees for when the completed work is put forward to the NOCN for marking.

What do we need from you?

For our mentoring to have the maximum impact we would require an appropriate lit space on your premises, enough space to talk and play games as we are very creative and don’t just expect young people to sit down in a clinical setting and talk about their problems for a whole hour. We like to stimulate discussions by doing various fun activities inside and outside to promote discussion, learning and trust. This space will also have to a satisfactory amount of privacy so that the young person in question can feel safe enough to really open up, as that is what we are trying to do – capture the child’s voice and build that trust and provide that confidential space and setting for them to do so. If we feel the space allocated to us isn’t appropriate we will let you know.
