We offer art therapy to children and young people, and, in certain circumstances, adults
Key information about Art Therapy
How it works
Face-to-face sessions can take place in our art therapy rooms at both Christopher’s and Shooting Star House. Where suitable we can also offer sessions virtually.
What does it involve
Paint, collage, clay, sand art, mixed media and much more – our art rooms at each hospice are well equiped with everything you need to get creative!
Sessions are confidential so a child or young person feels safe to share challenging and harmful feelings they might be struggling with. Our therapists make sure they have frequent opportunities to meet with parents and other professionals involved. You can speak with a therapist at any time to talk about the mental health of your child or a sibling, and any concerns you may have about how they are at home, or how they are supported at school.
Our arts therapists are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council.
