Art Therapy - Parent and Child Introduction Session

Art Therapy - Parent and Child Introduction Session
At the outset of the Art Therapy journey we hold Introduction Sessions for the parent and child. This follows the Parental Consultation session. 

It offers an opportunity for the child to meet with the therapist, see the space, maybe engage in the art process and importantly ask any questions that they might have. 

This also provides a space to discuss in a child friendly manner how Art Therapy might be of particlar benefit to the needs of the child in question. 

This step in the journey enables the child to feel safe, valued and on board with the Art Therapy process.

    My son has Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis. As a result, his treatment involves fortnightly injections and frequent blood tests. He absolutely hated the injections. Thankfully Art Therapy reversed this… he thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to communicate his fears and anxieties, frustrations, pain and emotions. He literally flourished at Art Therapy and on leaving the hospital one day he said he felt like he was “walking on air”. As a parent of a sick child this quite literally brought tears to my eyes. For the most part we are now “hassle” free. Art Therapy will be a vital part of my son’s treatment going forward to promote his positive mental health.

    Roisin was an extremely pleasant therapist and my daughter Anna felt very comfortable spending time in Art Therapy. The appointments were always on time and Roisin explained everything very clearly to myself and my daughter. All in all Art Therapy was a positive experience.
