IF your children are like many others in Dudley whose mental health has taken a lockdown battering, then a Dudley Fairy called Wanda may be just the answer.
A local therapist has come up with Wanda and a Pixie called Berry who live in Firefly Forest and who could help struggling children.
For they aren’t just part of an enchanting tale to distract children, they are part of a plan to introduce well-being support tools and techniques to families.
Stourbridge-based therapist Laura Wooldridge says she began to develop a ‘mindful and holistic health programme’ to support children after seeing how much their mental health was affected over the last 12 months.
And up popped the fairy-tale characters who form the basis of the Berry and Wanda Programme.
Written in poem form, they are now in a book brought to life by local fantasy artist Julie Dhemiah Meacham and designer Carly Mills from Two Thirds Design.
