The techniques and tools used in therapy are adjusted to suit different clients, families and children.
Examples of possible techniques:
- Narratives and family photograph albums
- Artistic means of expression including drawing, painting, plasticine, collage, music and drama
- Guided imagination
- Therapeutic cards
When supervising therapists I encourage the use of creativity in their work
Occasionally, I use the technique of a therapy marathon of a whole day or two . Some couples prefer to work in this more intense manner rather than a meeting once or twice a week over a period of time. Indeed exhausting.....but immensely beneficial!
