Drama therapy provides children with a place to explore, to play and to experiment in order to know themselves better. Using drama, games, story and play, children can express themselves and explore their difficulties in a safe and supported way. Children seen by a Drama therapist do not need special skills or a love of drama. The relationship with the therapist and engagement with dramatic medium are central in building the child's resilience and creating the opportunity for an improved state of adjustment and wellbeing.
Art Therapy provides children with a space to explore their difficulties and build upon their strengths in a safe and supported space. Art materials are used as a vehicle for expression, communication, reflection and change. Children seen by an Art therapist do not need to have a love of art or skill in art making. The relationship with the therapist and engagement with the art materials are central in creating the opportunity for the child to get to know themselves better and to build resilience and an improved state of adjustment and wellbeing.

We offer alternative therapies such as parent and baby massages at the centre to improve the lives of those at the charity. These gentile massages are aimed to relax tired and stressed parents or 'parents to be' who need help. These sessions can help to improve a wide range of symptoms. To understand one of the therapies we offer, our cranio-sacral therapist Florence kindly took the time out to describe her services at our charity here.
When are they held?
Our alternative therapies are offered on different days of the week. Please contact [email protected] , see our notice board for information or talk to a member of staff at the charity.
