We provide one-to-one emotional support with our therapists and family support workers. Our therapists use music, drama or art to help siblings process the emotional challenges they face, and we help their school understand how to support them well. Our therapists are skilled in tailoring their support to the child’s age, and we work closely with parents. Providing confidential therapy sessions can be a powerful way to help a sibling with their mental health. Having a meeting with a sibling’s teacher can help everybody understand the unique and complex pressures they experience. Complementary therapies and hydrotherapy can be helpful in easing anxieties.
