Parents/carers are initially invited into the first 'settling in session' together, until the child feels comfortable enough for you to leave. The child will then attend a 45 minute session each week. This will be held at the same time, on the same day, with the therapist. The minimum recommended number of sessions is 12, although more or less may be required and this can be discussed in a ‘review session’ with the parents/carers and child at the standard rate. The review is an opportunity for the parents/carers, child and therapist to communicate together and either plan for further therapy or plan an ending.
The therapy process is child led and therefore the number of sessions required depends on the needs of the child. Ultimately we want to achieve balance, positive behaviours and healthy outcomes and we do not want your child to be therapy dependant.
