CREATIVE COUNSELLING

Creative counselling is a therapeutic approach used to support children, young people and adults who are experiencing difficulty with thoughts and emotions, negative patterns of behaviour and repressed trauma by using a combination of creative tools along with talking therapy.

Creative Counselling

In creative counselling sessions, aspects of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), mindfulness and family attachment therapy might be used, or for younger children, creative materials in the sessions might be used which incorporate a mixture of play and craft materials alongside talking.

Creative counselling sessions are client-led – the therapist is guided by what the client brings to their therapy session and together the client and therapist will explore difficulties, promote self-awareness and raise self-esteem.
