This is specialist targeted support for youngsters whom are struggling with emotional regulation to the degree it is impacting on their education and development at home, and in a school setting or provision.
Sometimes children experience feelings or behaviours that cause disruption to their lives and of those around them. Therapeutic intervention helps children understand events that are upsetting them. Without having to explain what is troubling them children use art or play to communicate at their own level and at their own pace.
The sessions are child-led and use creative art, design or play dependent on the age of the child. Parents, school and the individual child (if old enough) will complete a measure at the beginning and end of the programme to measure outcomes.
The sessions are in 6 – 10 week blocks for each child dependent on need and may continue for some time.
