We developed our Therapy Room as a safe and friendly environment to support our Families Together work. It has been designed with communication in mind as this is key when supporting children during a highly emotive experience.
A child with emotional problems is often overwhelmed by his or her emotions and has difficulty expressing or dealing with them. Younger children may not yet have the vocabulary to say how they are feeling and instead they communicate their feelings in other ways – through facial expressions, through their body, their behaviour and play.
We use the Therapy Room for the specific play work for each developmental stage and for individual counselling sessions with our trained family counsellors.
