What a fab day at Ryan Academy

I have been left feeling very happy today, after an incredible day with everyone at RYAN Academy working on Emotional Resilience with the students. Chris you are a true legend and the kids loved listening to you talk about your life and successes. Here you are in action.

Gotta love my work!!

We are Here to Support you

We are constantly hearing about the need to ensure that everyone that requires support with their mental health gets just that. We are thrilled that the Post Office, Lord Sugar and WH Smiths are viewing the mental health of their staff as important as their physical health.

Those struggling with their mental health need everyone’s help. We as an organisation are here to support anyone, whether that is with 1-2-1 counselling/therapy or delivering 1st Aid for Mental Health. Are you doing your bit too?

Please welcome our latest Tappy Family edition

Meet the fabulous Chiara who joins our Tappy Twins Family. She beings a wealth of experience and we are thrilled to have her on board.


‘My name is Chiara McMaster and I am a Counsellor and Psychotherapist based in Ross on Wye, Herefordshire.  I run my own private practice and have experience working in schools in Manchester.  I love working with children, young people and adults to help empower stronger mental health and happier lives.  Children have the right to be heard; I consider it my role to help make this happen.  I believe every child should be loved, be taken care of and should have a happy childhood, free from any kind of abuse.
I trained and qualified as a therapist in Manchester which gave me great opportunities to work with a diverse range of clients.  During my placements, I gained experience working as a Psychotherapist in GP surgeries with adults as well as in schools with children.  It was clear to me even then how much I loved working with both client groups.
Since University, I trained in Applied Behaviour Analysis and worked both in schools and privately as a Behaviour Therapist; I worked with children who have autism and other additional needs. I also set up my private practice and I set up a Counselling service in a school in Bolton before relocating back to Herefordshire.’

3 new schools in a day

So pleased we have secured another 3 schools today. We are getting to help so many more vulnerable kids which is what it is all about.

Tappy expands again

We are thrilled to be now working with Catherine and her inspirational team at Ryan Education Academy. They are so passionate about changing the lives of their students. So we can’t wait to get started as that is what we are all about.

Momo challenge is ‘hacking’ Peppa Pig, Fortnite and YouTube

Parents and children beware.

Sick suicide challenge Momo is being inserted into children’s YouTube shows such as Peppa Pig, Fortnite and You Tube. Parents think their child is safe watching a normal episode of their favourite programme – but a ‘Momo’ clip has been spliced into the YouTube clip.

The ‘Momo’ character – a scary doll’s face – interrupts the show and threatens the viewer into contacting a number on WhatsApp.

Some parents say their children have been told they will be “killed in their sleep” if they do not contact ‘Momo’.

Once the child has connected, the shadowy people behind the ‘Momo’ account can send what they like to the child on WhatsApp.

Please warn your children to be careful and keep all personal information safe.
