How does art therapy work? Sessions usually take place weekly and last from 45 minutes to an hour. Typically, there are 8 sessions in a block. However, there could be more or less depending on the child’s needs. This will be agreed through discussions with the parent/carer, the child and our art therapist. Sessions have child-led goals (e.g. “I want to worry less”) and child-friendly progress tracking (e.g. using visual prompts) to help children cope with their diagnosis, treatment, pain and the emotional impact of their condition. Progress toward therapy and treatment plans is reviewed regularly with the parent/carer and the child.
