Therapy

At Graham Grange School we support our students with the following therapy offers:

Art Therapy

Art Therapy is a form of intervention that can assist with an individual’s psychological, emotional, social and physical development.

The Art Therapist’s role is to aid the communication of thoughts and feelings through the use of art and other visual media in a safe and facilitating environment. The process of Art Therapy is not dependent on spoken language and can therefore be helpful to anyone who finds it difficult to express themselves verbally.

Art Therapy can help to increase self-awareness and self-esteem, raise achievement, improve behaviour and help a student to take part more fully in school life.

Students can be referred to therapy by members of the school staff team or can self-refer. Having completed an introductory/ assessment period, the student and therapist agree to meet at a set time, at Grafham Grange this is once a week for approximately 40 minutes. The student and therapist will agree as to when the therapy should end.

The Art Therapist works as a member of the school team and liaises with other professionals within the school as and when appropriate. Communication with parents, carers and family members is usually encouraged and written progress reports are provided at the end of term.

The therapist is professionally qualified and registered with the British Association of Art Therapists and the Health Care Professionals Council. A Professional Code of Ethics is adhered to and clinical work is regularly supervised. Kate, the current therapist at the school, is also happy to meet with young people who feel they would prefer to talk.
