Art therapy can allow a person to tackle difficult subjects such as life-changing events and traumatic experiences.
Never has it been important than now to consider the mental health needs of children and adolescents.
Andrew Wright, an Art Psychotherapist currently working with hArt, explains the benefits of Art Therapy for children and adolescents below…
“Children may not be able to verbally articulate their experiences, but art and play can help them make sense of it and be a window on their world to engage with them. By engaging in interactive sensory experiences, helps children to minimise avoidance of difficult feelings and improves emotional regulation, contributing towards making them whole again.” - Andrew Wright
hArt offers a diverse range of creative therapeutic support packages which can be delivered in schools and privately to support children and adolescents to better manage their mental and emotional health. These programmes can be delivered as face-to-face sessions (covid secure) or as on-line sessions.
