Positive growth and transformation through creative therapy

What we do

Butterfly is experienced in offering a wide range of high quality therapeutic services for in school settings and private practice that are tailored and designed to aid the psychological, emotional, and social wellbeing of children and young people. Services can be offered on an individual basis or within therapeutic groups and bespoke workshops.

Butterfly’s therapists support those who benefit from the service through the use of creative therapy. Children and young people can find an adult style therapy session intimidating, rather like an interrogation, however the therapists at Butterfly employ a range of techniques such as play, art and drama using various materials and props and verbal methods. These techniques bring about an understanding of themselves, their emotions and situations, enabling them to cope with distressing events in their lives, or to perhaps reflect on undesirable behaviour to bring about positive change.

Butterfly’s therapy service has a positive impact and creates outcomes for children and young people such as:

  • Raising of self esteem
  • The ability to express ones self and experiences
  • Positive self management of behaviour
  • Improvement of relationships with peers
  • Easing of emotional distress
  • Acquiring new skills
  • Creating an environment where children can share and learn from each other

Please see our testimonials page for feedback from children and young people who have personally benefited from Butterfly’s services and from the heads of schools where Butterfly’s services have been employed.

Butterfly is a member of the Counselling Children and Young People division of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and adheres to the BACP’s code of ethics and guidelines.

Butterfly works alongside other agencies to support each child’s individual needs.
