We offer Lego Therapy and Therapeutic Art sessions to children who find things a little overwhelming.
Therapeutic Art aims to help children and young people gain a better self-image, improve relationships with their family/friends and have better resilience.
Children and young people often find it hard to put their painful memories and difficult feelings into words. As a result, they may become withdrawn or have sudden angry outbursts. Therapeutic Art is a gentle way of exploring one’s feelings: young people can offload their overwhelming feelings yet they do not have to talk about them.
Therapeutic Art does not require any particular art skills. As the art therapists, we help the young person to relax and to be themselves, and guide them to find their own way of working with art materials. They will not be judged from what they have created, and their privacy will be respected.
Towards the end of the therapy, the young person may be able to learn more about themselves, feel comfortable being themselves, and what they have been through. They may have a more positive outlook for their future.
Lego therapy is an increasingly popular social skills programme for children and young people with social communication problems.
Lego therapists believe it helps develop and reinforce play skills and social skills such as verbal and non-verbal communication, joint attention, task focus, sharing and turn-taking and collaborative problem-solving. Through Lego therapy, children learn to communicate with others, express feelings, modify behaviour, develop problem-solving skills, and learn a variety of ways of relating to others.
