Art Therapy

During these weekly sessions the creative arts are used as a medium to address a variety of different issues and needs.

The Arts therapists might draw on a range of creative mediums such as Art, Movement, Story, Drama, Music and play utilising both verbal and non verbal techniques.

ArtS therapists facilitate a therapeutic relationship in which the child feels safe enough to express unconscious thoughts and feelings through the medium of the Arts.

The practice provides a means for a child to communicate and explore complex thoughts and feelings which they might not be able to express through words alone facilitating the potential for psychological, social and emotional change.
