At Essence Holistic Therapies we provide counselling, arts psychotherapy, and art therapy sessions for adults as well as children. We understand that life is not always plain sailing. That sometimes there are hurdles to get through, mountains to climb, and rivers to cross. Whatever your hurdle, mountain or river, we are here to help. Although we cannot do the journey for you, we have a variety of therapeutic tools at our disposal that can help illuminate the way, provide a new perspective, or discover a new direction.
We can help with relationship or family difficulties, challenging life transitions, problems in the school or workplace, grief and loss, depression, anxiety, ADHD and much more. Sessions are tailored to individual needs, preferences, and developmental levels. For children this will generally mean a more play-based type of session and for adults more talk therapy. However, even with adults the arts will often be incorporated into the session in some way, to further the process. This may vary from being a brief few minutes to most of the session.
Sessions vary in length from 30 minutes to an hour for children, and up to 90 minutes for adults. Where the arts are integrated into the session, options may include drawing, painting, sculpture, collage, play therapy, sand play, Clay Field, storytelling, poetry, movement, music, or drama. Sometimes these will be negotiated before the session, however often the need for particular materials or modalities will emerge as the session progresses.
