Messy play: ideas to shake up playtime and help your child’s development

With the warmer weather on its way, now is a great time to get stuck into some messy play in the garden. It’s great fun to do and helps your child’s development in so many different ways at the same time.

How To Engage With Your Child Through Making Art

We are delighted to welcome art therapist Anna Storch to the team. In this article, she explains the many benefits of creating art with your child, and how to get the best out of this activity.

As an Art Psychotherapist, I naturally favour art projects as a means of connecting with children. As well as being a mode of communication in therapy, art can be a fantastic mediation tool. If your relationship is fraught, art can be a very useful buffer, something to focus on and work on together while building and repairing your relationship.
