Creative tools used when counselling adults

Last Saturday I delivered my second workshop at the counselling charity steps, the delegates for both workshops were counsellors trainees and qualified working with adults that had surfed sexual violence.
The workshop introduced creative therapy theories and practical exercises . The workshop covered a number of creative tools,
The use of a metaphor,
Sand tray and the use of symbols.
The use of Art
The medium of Clay
use of imagination with creativity.
The delegates rated the work shop favourably high and I enjoyed the enthusiasm and commitment of the counsellors in having a open mind .

Launch of space4u primary

Space4uhas now launched their primary counselling service and we have secured a partnership with Inglehurst primary school in Leicester.
The counselling helps children access and deal with emotional distress by playing and exploring, The counsellor uses the sand tray and other creative tools to discharge tension and conflicts causing stress and worry.
We are committed to allowing children to access counselling within schools and our service promotes the benefits of counselling as a early help strategy.

Counselling not fines .

.
The introduction of the policy that fines parents if the take their children out of school to go on holiday is not the most effective way to reduce the worrying number of unauthorised absences.
 
Many children and young people that don’t attend school is much more complex than having a few days off because theparents are wanting to manage the family budget more effectively or that theirwork commitments make planning family holidays difficult.
 
If children are feeling sad stressed,worried and confused, then more emotional support is required within schools so that children can be more able to feel confident to be in a learning environment which is often perceived by young people to be very competitive.

Counselling in schools should it be in all schools?

School counselling increasingly is being acknowledged as being a fundamental service offered as part of the pastoral support that schools offer. There are many benefits that counselling provides, to has been showed that many young people that receive early mental health care, a reduction of more serious problems can be prevented. Counselling reduces stress and worry and this reflects in better school attainment. Space4u promotes the social and emotional well being of all children .
