Following an initial consultation where you meet with Art Therapist Róisín Kenny, you may decide to persue Art Therapy and one of the options available to you is the Brief Intervention 6 Week Course.
Brief Intervention Therapy is any therapy under eight weeks in duration. It is solution focused and aims are set at the outset.
During this time period, the therapeutic relationship develops between the therapist and the client and a deeper understanding of client needs can be established and supported.
At the end of the 6 week course there is a review session to allow for reflection on the therapeutic journey and the art process that has taken place. Recommendations are made by the therapist and the client's perspective is taken on board.
In the case of clients under 18 years of age, parents are invited into the review to meet with both the therapist and their child. Any skills or learning that can benefit the child and the family dynamic is shared at this point, or sooner when necessary, and this is done without breaching the client's confidentiality.
It is important to understand that each person who receives Art Therapy has their own pace at which to engage and their own personal set of abilities and needs, all of which are taken into consideration. This means that Brief-Intervention Therapy can in some circumstances require further sessions in order to best meet the needs of the individual.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact us to discuss your personal circumstances.
