Activity-based Therapy

Butterflies is a well-established activity-based therapy service for young people aged 4 to 15 years experiencing bereavement (which can include murder, manslaughter and suicide) and loss (which can include Domestic Abuse, Children Looked After/ On the Edge of Care and Parent in Prison). Butterflies uses principles of CBT, Person Centred and Solution Focussed therapies and translates them to be age-appropriate. Butterflies consists of a parallel (but separate) 50 minute assessment for a child and their parent/ carer, followed by eight, fifty minute, 1:1 therapy sessions.

It is usually attended weekly.
