Individual Support

 

It can be hard for children or young people to open up about how they are feeling which can leave them often reluctant to engage in therapy. Many can take time to trust adults with supporting them to make sense of their thoughts, feelings and ever-changing worlds.  We are experienced in developing relationships with children and young people through co-creating a safe place where they can start to feel comfortable enough to be vulnerable.  We can offer your child evidence based therapeutic interventions informed by Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Psychodynamic and trauma approaches. We can also offer specialist approaches of Art Therapy, individual Systemic Psychotherapy and Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT).

 

Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses art materials as its primary mode of expression and communication. For some young people who struggle to express and make sense of their feelings, art can help them to address emotional issues which may be confusing and distressing.

Art therapists work with children and young people who may have a wide range of difficulties, disabilities or diagnoses. These include emotional, behavioural or mental health problems, learning or physical disabilities, life-limiting conditions, neurological conditions and physical illnesses. For further information about Art Therapy please see here.

 

Individual Systemic Psychotherapy is a form of Family therapy with individuals using techniques that focus on patterns in relationships. This can help young people who find relationships challenging to understand how the past might be impacting the present along with the context that they live in. This can then offer a new perspective which can open possibilities both in how the young person relates to themselves and also other people in their life. 

Any individual work will be undertaken alongside parent support or family sessions, as the real goal is to strengthen family relationships and to improve connections. This approach is informed by our belief that children/young people do not live in isolation, that lasting change comes from supporting relationships in their lives.

 

 One to one therapeutic interventions for children and young people will be via a virtual platform. Sessions are typically for one hour and weekly, however this will be agreed together based on your child's needs.  The amount of sessions required will depend on the individual needs of your child and this will be discussed and reviewed with you. 

Session fee is £60.

As part of our mission to be accessible to as many families as possible we are offering a reduced rate scheme. Reduced rates are available to families who are currently claiming Universal credit more information in FAQ section. Please note there is a 48 hour cancellation period required otherwise full fee will apply once a session has been agreed.
