Art Therapy For Children & Young People

Art Therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses art materials as the way of communication. Creative therapy can help a child’s psychological, emotional, social and physical development.

Art Therapy In Schools

When a child has emotional difficulties this can impact their learning and have a knock-on effect on the class as a whole. Therapy in schools can be very beneficial to children as they are already in a safe school environment.

Child & Parent (Dyadic) Art Therapy

Dyadic art therapy is a way of working that focuses on the relationship between the child and the parent. The sessions are intended to enhance a parent’s understanding of their child’s thoughts, feelings and mental landscape.

MA in Art Therapy

Art Therapist In Newmarket, Suffolk

I believe in child-centred, child-led therapy using art materials, clay, sand trays and puppets. I help children to find a way to express their thoughts and feelings through creativity and play. Together I work with the child or young person to identify new strategies for expressing and managing feelings, thoughts and behaviours at home and at school. 

What Is Art Therapy?

Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses art media as its primary form of communication. Although its a popular form of counselling for children, it can also be beneficial to adults and the elderly.

Who Would Benefit?

Art therapy is not dependent on the spoken word therefore it can be helpful for anyone who finds it difficult to express their thoughts and feelings verbally.
