For some pupils at Summerhouse, access to art or play therapy sessions provides them with the opportunity to explore difficult feelings, or situations they are experiencing. If the adults working with your child feel that they would benefit from these therapy sessions, a referral to one of our specialist therapists will be made, and a consultation with you will be arranged.

During art and play therapy sessions, a therapist and child work together in a playroom. Every toy and art material in the room is specifically chosen to potentially symbolise different parts of the child’s inner experience.
