Art Therapy - Parental Psychoeducation Session

Art Therapy - Parental Psychoeducation Session

We offer parents and gaurdians the opportunity to join us for a psycheducation session on mental health. 

These sessions can take part in advance of a child starting therapy or they can occur alongside a child's therapeutic journey. 

The aim of these sessions is to give tools to the parents / gaurdians that can help them manage challenges that may be arrising at home. 

We provide a scientific framework which encompasses the neurobiology of mental health and wellbeing. We believe this is a gentle and non-judgemental lens through which to learn about emotional dysregulation, challenging behavior and building a sense of safety for the child. 

Please feel free to contact us to see if this service might be of benefit to you and your circumstances. 

Testimonials

    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.
