ART THERAPY FOR CHILDREN:
The use of visual art as a therapeutic tool is extremely beneficial for children. It can provide a means of expression and communication for those who have difficulties with speech and language and/or learning and behavioural issues. By building the visual vocabulary, children can explore and express thoughts and feelings that have been otherwise inaccessible through the spoken word.
ART THERAPY FOR PARENTS & SIBLINGS:
All relationships are complex, not in the least that of the parent and child. Art Therapy sessions can be booked for parents of children with disabilities. In these sessions, parents can explore the emotions and anxieties around supporting children with special needs. Children who have siblings with disabilities can sometimes feel unseen because of their ability to cope and function at a higher level than their siblings. Art Therapy can provide them with the opportunity to process their emotions, explore their role in the family and develop their sense of self.
