Parents or any other support in a family's life can make a referral through your G.P., TUSLA, CAHMS, Schools or Disability Services.
Once a referral email is received, a meeting or a call is arranged with the referring body.
A meeting is then held with the child’s parents/carer(s) if they are not the ones who made the initial contact.
Sessions are regular; Play Therapy sessions are usually weekly, Family Therapy sessions are usually bi-weekly. The amount of sessions is determined by who is referring and what the family feel they need. For Play Therapy, we usually ask that we have a block of 12 sessions, for Family Therapy a block of 6.
We review our progress together, we do this as regularly as is needed to make sure we continue to address the concerns raised at the beginning and to track changes.
