Unlocking emotional growth through creative play

What is creative play-based counselling?

Creative Play-Based Counselling is a dynamic approach tailored for children, combining the therapeutic power of play with the principles of counseling. This method is designed to engage children in a way that is natural and familiar to them, to explore emotions, experiences and challenges.

Play: The Language of Children

Play is not just an activity; it's a vital language through which children communicate. In Creative Play-Based Counselling, play is used as a tool to express feelings, thoughts and experiences that might be difficult to articulate verbally. This approach allows children to explore their inner world in a safe, supportive environment.

 

Empowering Emotional and Social Development

Creative play helps children better manage their feelings and get along with others. It's a fun way for them to learn about emotions and build friendships.

 

Personalised Fun Learning

Every child is unique, and so is our approach. We use exciting play activities like role-play and arts to specifically cater to each child's needs and interests.

 

Family Involvement for Better Growth

We team up with families to support each child's overall development. Our counsellors offer advice and activities that parents can use at home to continue the progress.

What is Sensorimotor Art Therapy?

Sensorimotor art therapy recognizes that trauma and emotional challenges often resides within the body. Through creative, sensory-based expression, this therapy accesses and addresses these deep-seated issues.

 

The Healing Process in Therapy

In our secure and trusting therapy sessions, we use art to tap into painful memories and past experiences. Simultaneously, we foster new, positive sensorimotor experiences.

 

Empowerment and Neural Growth

These experiences are designed to enhance self-worth, self-esteem and empowerment. By doing so, we encourage the development of new neural pathways, which help bypass traumatic memories and promote overall well-being and healing.

Clay Field Therapy®

A tactile therapeutic experience

What is Clay Field Therapy?

Clay field therapy provides a distinctive path to healing through tactile interaction with clay. This therapy, emphasising touch and personal expression, offers a profound, often non-verbal, means of communication and emotional processing.

 

Embracing the Power of Touch

Central to this therapy is its tactile nature, transcending traditional methods by utilising touch as a vital pathway for addressing childhood trauma and developmental challenges. It allows for deep emotional engagement and healing in ways words often cannot.

 

Therapeutic Clay Interaction

This non-verbal therapy is adept at gently revealing and addressing childhood traumas. In sessions, children engage with smooth clay in a wooden box, using their hands to explore and express themselves. This process fosters a deep form of self-expression and emotional discovery.

 

Accessing Deep Emotional Insights

Clay field therapy is particularly effective at uncovering preverbal memories and emotions. It provides insights into traumatic experiences and catalyses emotional breakthroughs, especially beneficial for those areas unreachable by traditional talk therapies.

 

Benefits Across a Spectrum of Needs

Beyond trauma healing, this therapy is immensely beneficial for individuals, particularly children with learning and behavioral challenges and adults with past trauma. It focuses on issues of touch, boundaries and personal agency, enabling a therapeutic rewriting of one’s narrative in the clay field.

What is Art Therapy?

Art therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses the creative process of making art to improve and enhance physical, mental and emotional well-being. It involves various forms, including drawing, painting, sculpture, and collage.

 

The Foundation of Art Therapy

Art therapy is grounded in the belief that creative expression can foster healing and mental well-being. This therapeutic approach is more than just making art; it's a journey into self-expression and self-discovery, providing a powerful medium for processing complex emotions and experiences.

 

Expert Guidance in the Artistic Journey to Healing

In art therapy, professionally trained art therapists play a crucial role. They have a deep understanding of the neuroscience behind creative expressive arts therapy and are skilled in using art as a medium to address trauma, psychological and emotional issues. Their expertise guides children in a way that's both empathetic and insightful.

 

Expressing the Inner World

Children in Art Therapy Program are encouraged to create to express their inner world rather than simply replicating external images. This creation process helps individuals resolve conflicts, improve interpersonal skills, manage behavior, reduce stress and increase self-esteem and self-awareness.

 

Enhancing Connections: The Value of Group Art Therapy

Art therapy in groups helps build better social skills and teamwork. It's great for all ages and can be customised for anyone, making it a personal and flexible way to heal and grow. Whether it's alone, with family, or in a group, art therapy offers a safe place for everyone's journey.
