CHARITY TODAY AWARDS

What does Clear Sky’s therapeutic team do?

- Advertisement -

CLEAR Sky are leaders in providing Play & Creative Arts Therapy in schools. We use a holistic approach working with parents, teachers and other childcare practitioners; whilst keeping the child and play at the heart of everything we do.

At least 3 children in every UK classroom will have a diagnosable mental health difficulty

Many more will be struggling with psychological difficulties which impact on their learning such as anxiety and low self-esteem.

We are experts in child-led therapy

We have a dedicated team and unlike most other providers ONLY use fully qualified Play & Creative Arts Therapists.

Our parent workshops and training are based on the latest research.

We offer good value and flexibility

School budgets are tighter than ever, but our lean model of working means that we can offer good value services. Many schools use Pupil Premium funding to pay for support for their pupils.

We offer a range of services that schools can select from, working in partnership to offer effective early interventions which have a long-term impact on emotional wellbeing.

The Therapeutic Team

We only employ qualified therapists. Therapists are registered professionals qualified in Play Therapy, Dramatherapy, Dance & Movement Psychotherapy, Counselling, Child Psychotherapy and Art Therapy. They have a breadth of experience equipping them to deal with often complex social and emotional issues.

This month we’d like to focus on our Head of Therapeutic Services, Becky Hill, who said:

“As a Dramatherapist working for Clear Sky Children’s Charity, I provide interventions in schools for children who have experienced trauma.

“Dramatherapy is a creative form of psychological therapy; It allows the child to explore, express and engage with challenging thoughts and feelings through role play, dance & movement, story making, art and other creative outlets. The use of creativity and metaphor provides a safe distance from overwhelming thoughts and feelings, allowing children to express and explore experiences without becoming emotionally overwhelmed.

“Since a young age, I knew that I wanted to work with people in a creative and playful environment. I was always involved in drama clubs and soon became a workshop facilitator. Leading sessions for young adults with Autism gave me first-hand experience of the benefits that play, and movement could have in reducing levels of anxiety and increasing social interaction. This led me to delve deeper into the world of Creative Arts Therapy.

“It’s a privilege to form trusting therapeutic relationships with children who show me every week how hard they are working to build their resilience and overcome adversity. I feel so lucky to have found a job role where being playful and empathic can support children to become the happiest and healthiest versions of themselves.”
