There are many therapies out there and it can be difficult to find the right one to match the person. I have decided to offer to anxiety sufferers some help, which, in the first instance, will be in a group. If you, or anyone you know is suffering from any form of anxiety, please contact me. I will soon be offering a complimentary talk on this subject and how we can begin to rid ourselves of it.Read more
When a young child or adolescent begins to display unhealthy behaviours, at school or at home, they don’t have the necessary language to express themselves, so it comes out in other ways, usually negatively, such as anger, violence, sadness, anxiety, withdrawal, etc.
The core of Drawing & Talking is not for therapist intervention, or to interpret the drawing, but to allow the child to feel emotionally better.
When dealing with trauma, either with a capital or small ‘t’, not everyone can verbalise their emotions, or indeed their thoughts.
Very young children certainly struggle, as they haven’t yet gained the capacity for expressing through language. Any trauma, upset, or unresolved events, present or past, could be negatively affecting their behaviour and emotions, at home or in the classroom.Read more
I’ve recently finished a training in Drawing and Talking, which allows young people to express negative emotions, and ultimately to move forward in their life.
Where D&T differs from many other therapies is that instead of being a formal therapy it’s very much focused on the child (or adult) expressing parts of themselves, and what they may be going through internally, currently, and/or historically.
