Treatment for Children mental health
The approach used in working therapeutically with children is child centred and is informed by Psychodynamic thinking.
Person centred therapy thus offering children an unhurried experience in a neutral space where play media can be used to explore troubles and to work towards self healing.
The child's confidentiality within the therapy hour is respected but the service adheres to the The Department for children, schools and families (DCSF) Working Together Every Child Matters principles and aims to develop close working relationships with key adults within a child's network.
The service is primarily orientated towards providing individual play therapy sessions to children although sessions on therapeutic parenting can be offered to children's carers, as can parent and child play sessions.
