Young People

Here at Spring we recognise that sometimes talking is too much, or not enough; our team uses a range of creative approaches to support the individual young person in building self-esteem, instilling hope and finding a way forwards

We're Here to Support

Promoting psychological healing and growth via creativity

We appreciate that many young people do not respond well to just talking therapy alone and therefore we use arts based activities within our therapy sessions as a tool for more effective communication. Using these activities can also enable young people to feel more comfortable and become more actively involved with the therapeutic process.

Who Is This Therapy For?

Creative Therapy can be used to help young people when experiencing difficulties such as:

  • Developmental and relational trauma

  • Anxiety and panic disorders

Our Advice



All sessions will be held on the same day and time - please support and encourage your Son/Daughter to attend their planned sessions. Consistency is key for improved outcomes and helps to create a safe and held environment for the the young person.


Respect the Confidentiality

Please resist the urge to ask your child questions about their therapy session - this is the young person's therapy and they need to feel that they are being held in a safe and confidential space, so that they feel able to express themselves openly and honestly.


Be Permissive

Please refrain from censoring what your child wants to bring to therapy - therapy is not about being 'good' or 'bad' and the young person must feel free to express their whole self


Owning Their Therapy

Please refrain from insisting that your child talk to their therapist about specific things. Instead, please allow them to express themselves at their own pace within their therapy sessions.


A Bumpy Journey

During any therapeutic intervention behaviours may appear to get worse before any improvement is seen. Please contact your child's therapist if you have any concerns or would like to share any information.
