Bringing therapy animals into therapeutic sessions allows you to explore and engage in the present moment. This approach provides opportunities to participate in relationships where the animals offer an insight and provide feedback to actions, behavior, energy, breathing, and language, both verbal and non-verbal. It deepens your awareness of contact styles and choices and responsibilities within relationships. Intimate moments emerge through non-verbal exchanges; assists in concepts, etc.
Explore the arts to connect with yourself. In art therapy, you'll use art media, the creative process, and the resulting artwork to make real progress through self-expression and insight. You'll be able to creatively communicate in a safe manner, sharing inner thoughts and fears in an emotionally safe zone. The use of art expression allows you to safely reflect how you see things, through your art, safely conveying the tough issues to help you grow.
Children use play to communicate, using toys, arts and crafts, and games to express their experiences. Play therapy is a developmentally appropriate way of working with kids by using their natural form of communication. Through the use of play, we help kids gain insight, identify and regulate emotions, process situations, and engage in more effective ways to practice skills.
