Therapy program for children and teenagers
Using Islamic based creative arts therapy
This programme is very effective for making positive change, inshAllah, not only for your child or teen but for your whole family.
Children and teenagers suffering from low self esteem or other mental health issues often have difficulty expressing themselves. Through our counselling, children and teens can begin to understand and express themselves and relate better to those around them. Increasing in confidence and self-esteem. We use art and other creative ways to find emotional expression in ways that often words cannot fully describe.
The course is for children and teenagers from 8-16 years old.
What does the programme include?
6 online therapy sessions with qualified child counsellors
Online go-at-your-own-pace parenting course using art therapy techniques
End of program 1:1 discussion with parents and feedback
Where and when?
Times will be matched to your schedule as best we can. Sessions are online and last 50 minutes.
Parents fill out a detailed questionnaire before the therapy begins so that we can gain an understanding of what your child needs and any history you feel we need to know. We can also do this via a telephone conversation.
At the end of the six weeks, we have a final meeting with yourselves to see how things are at home, and provide any feedback we feel would be helpful. We can also discuss how you got on with the parent's course and any questions you may have moving forward.
Six week online course for families or interactive online courses.
Included in the program is an online course to run alongside the work your child is doing. This is a fun and informative course to develop essential techniques such as communication skills, using art therapy techniques at home, playful parenting, Islamic guidance from Ahl Bayt, self-compassion and care, power dynamics in the family and more! This is an essential part of the course.
What issues do you deal with?
We can deal with any issue that your child may be going through, including low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, divorce, bullying, eating disorders, self-harm and other issues. We also see children with ADHD and autism and how to help them with their interactions and dealing with their diagnosis.
How do you bring in Islam?
We believe faith is an essential part of the healing process. We have many age related activities that help children or teenagers become more aware of themselves, life events and their emotions. We then help them to find ways to connect with Allah's light within to facilitate their own healing process and to feel better insha'Allah.
What do I need to do the programme?
-Your child will need complete privacy and access to an iPad or laptop with a strong Wifi connection.
-An A3 art pad and strong colours and art materials.
-A willingness to engage with counselling.
-Children & teens will need to keep their videos on during the sessions
How much does it cost?
The full programme costs just £280. We also offer a concession rate of £120. Payments can also be spread out to make it more affordable.
We help them learn how to turn to Allah for inner strength and support and to connect to their own inner wisdom which Allah gives them.
We also focus on self care and positive self regard - i.e.liking themselves!
