Service Description

This art therapy group is for any children, especially for those that appear to be shy, sensitive, have challenges with socialising and may be avoiding activities. They also may be showing signs of anxiety like fears, overwhelm, irritability, tension, poor concentration, insomnia, intrusive thoughts and more. The group is facilitated on a farm close to Oughterard. The focus is on "doing" while being with others in a therapeutic environment without expectations or pressure to perform in any way. Through use of art materials in combination with spending some time outdoors, children will be able to express their experiences in non-verbal way. The space for verbal reflection will be offered at the end of each session if they wish to share. This is a very gentle, playful and safe way for children to express their emotions and share with each other. All materials are supplied. As some of the activities will take place outside, the outdoor old clothes would be desirable. The groups are small - up to 6 children. Each session is 1 1/2 hour long. Parents are welcome to stay on the property if they wish as there are lots of beautiful walks on site. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me on 086 384 7411 or on
