2024 Workshops.

At B-Independent therapy, we believe in accessing informed early advice which is inclusive and offers access to a supportive and inclusive community. That's why we've adopted a pay-what-you-want pricing model for our workshops. We understand that everyone's financial situation is different, and we want to make our workshops accessible to as many people as possible. By offering this flexibility, we aim to build a community that values trust and collaboration. Your contributions, no matter the amount, support our aim to connect families and provide the best advice at the right age and stage of your child's development. We are keen to create an inclusive play environment for families with children with additional  needs, for those who have had a difficult start to life, and those families looking for a safe non-judgemental play space. 


Many parents want to know  what our the advisory contribution is but this may not be achievable for you at the moment, the most important part is that you join the group on this journey with us! But for those who wish to know a donation between £5-12 per session helps us to cover our overheads and buy new resources.


Be reassured the sessions are informal with a large supply of drinks and snacks on hand for parents of infants who just want to  watch, have a cuddle, or have a relaxing snooze.

Group options

Supporting you & your child

Get your child off to a flying start.

‘Flying Bees’ - Newborn to 4 months

Our massage & movement groups are suitable for newborns (and older infants) to 4-5 months of age. We introduce you & your baby to massage routines you can use from birth, positions for play & tummy time ideas,  we explore your babies cues & find time for you and your baby to unwind and connect together. Flying Bees is a wonderful way for you as a caregiver to learn all about your baby and the wonderful things they can already do! The activities you learn helps equip you with the skills to help you support your child to coregulate, help them soothe to sleep and can help you to ease their discomfort when they are teething, have colic or feel constipated. Our babies are given a free massage oil sample for you to trial!

See the world though your child's eyes & experience the wonders of play.

We use a range of activities to stimulate sensory, motor, cognitive and social emotional development. We introduce you and your baby to the eight body senses and strategies to develop a child’s sensory processing skills (this is key to developing longer term self regulation skills).

We work through a range of key positions for play which promote gross motor development, activities and games to develop visual perceptual, fine motor and cognitive development. All of our activities promote communication and social interaction
