Adapted Model 

In these uncertain times, we are up to the challenge of adapting our model of support. With isolation and heightened anxiety, it is more important now, more than ever, that we are able to provide the assistance needed for children already coping with chronic conditions. In order to protect patients, their families, and the art therapists, we cannot continue our art therapy services in person, but have developed a system whereby children with chronic conditions and their families can still be supported. 

We are therefore moving all current one to one art therapy sessions through our NHS partners online through Zoom video conferencing. We have robust security measures in place to continue our services safely and confidentially.

We will also soon be offering the option of self-referral for parents/carers to apply for one to one art therapy online support for their child or young people with a chronic condition. Robust Child Protection, Adult Protection and Online Security policies and procedures have been developed to ensure the safety and security of all online sessions, and we are finalising the referral procedures to ensure safety and confidentiality are at the forefront. 

Coming Soon

Information on this page will be updated to include: who can refer and how to refer, eligibility requirements for art therapy, the art therapy process and how we will support you, and additional resources and signposting. 

Please check back for more information as the self-referral process develops.

Additional Resources

In the time being, there are still so many different ways you can utilise therapeutic arts and activities at home. Children can still benefit from the art therapists' expertise through some of the art therapist videos or our at home therapeutic art exercises.
