Arts Psychology Coaching 1-1
Discover how we can support your child with coaching 1-1
This option is available to children who have experienced trauma, have specific special needs. We adapt the program to the age of the child. Children have a choice to do art alongside the coaching program or to work with us learning solution focused skills & tools to feel confident to deal with their personal fears, phobias or change within situations.
Our aim is to show children to ask for help is a strength within itself and should they feel they are confident to take the next step with counselling, we can refer children to trusted professionals within the industry
Our programs are designed to enhance and work alongside any therapy or counselling which will not interfere with other specialists work
With over 20 years of research and many case studies, our college delivers this program to individuals who have experienced traumatic experiences and life changes both small and huge. Few examples mentioned below.
Why do we use technical drawing and painting skills?
Technical drawing and painting has a step-by-step process to achieve an end result (a finished picture). How your child deals with the steps to achieve their finished art pieces as well as handle the challenges to create their art work demonstrates how the facilitator needs to give more support or to step away. The tutor is qualified in drawing and painting skills which shows the student that no matter what they do, they will have someone to help them work through to the end piece of artwork in their personal high standard. The child's brain starts to process and find a way to achieve an end piece of artwork that they are happy with. On a subconscious level, their thinking pattern visulising successfully achieving the steps filters into their life and how they deal with their emotions.
