How I work?
When working with a child, I meet with the parents first for an initial assessment of the difficulty they feel their child is experiencing. This is generally a 1-hour session.
Following this, I meet with the parents and the child to introduce me and the working environment to the child. I usually work for a minimum of 6 sessions with the child alone and then reconnect for a follow up with the parents. The length of session time is dependent on the age and needs of the child (45-60mins)
Should there be a need on the parents behalf or my behalf to communicate during these 6 weeks; there is an open opportunity to communicate with me.
In my work I adhere to the best practice guidelines & code of ethics of the Irish Association of Creative Art Therapies.
