Our Program Environments
Children are supported in a 1:1 setting in 30-60 minute sessions.
Regular sessions are recommended and held in our expressive therapy space at the centre.
Comprised of 4-6 children grouped by age and, where possible, referral reasons. Group therapy programs are facilitated by 2 Expressive Therapists in 60-90 minute sessions.
Group Therapy is not suitable in all cases and will be assessed once a referral is received.
Caregivers join their child on their therapeutic journey in these joint 30-60 minute sessions.
These sessions are usually offered alongside individual or group therapy and will be determined in consultation with the therapist.
