One to one creative, expressive wellbeing sessions for people who are recovering from trauma or noticing a decline in their wellbeing.
Facilitated by fully qualified, highly experienced Creative Expressive specialists with additional training, these creative, expressive sessions enable people who would rather work alone to explore and process thoughts, feelings and experiences through the arts.
Sessions are tailored to suit the needs and abilities of the client. We focus on giving people a safe space for artistic expression, facilitating communication, nurturing self-esteem, building a sense of belonging, tackling difficulties and restoring well-being. Our facilitators use a mix of art forms – art, music, dance and drama – specifically tailored to the engagement style of the person they are working with.
Creative Expressive Wellbeing one to one sessions are ideally suited to people who need in depth support to cope with difficulties and prevent them escalating, and who might find it difficult to work in a group. This might include people whose behaviour might distress or disrupt the engagement of other clients in a group setting.
The only people who might be excluded from one-to-one work are people whose behaviour poses a risk to our staff. In these instances, we may suggest that people also purchase a level 1 “Added Support” package, enabling a safer two to one ratio in their sessions.
A nominated contact within the establishment will receive a weekly reflective email updating staff on client progress, any issues and the rationale/wellbeing benefits in regard to activities presented. Reflective outcomes for each participant; mapping progress against named targets, using person-centred standardised assessment tools will be included.
