Art therapy is the use of art materials for self expression and reflection in the presence of a qualified art therapist. Art therapy is a unique process, combining creativity and psychotherapy for growth, awareness and healing. It is done in a supportive, non-judgmental environment. Why do people see an Art Therapist? Some people can find it difficult to talk directly about their feelings and experiences. Using art materials can be an alternative form of expression. The art process itself can be deeply relaxing, satisfying and positive. It can provide some physical and emotional relief as we express feelings using tactile art materials. Art therapy can potentially provide a space where people can experiment, make a mess, be playful and spontaneous. Do I need to be artistic? No artistic skill is necessary. It is not about making realistic drawings or painting a masterpiece. The artistic quality of the end product is unimportant. The therapist will not make judgments and all work is accepted in its own right. What will happen in a session? Sessions usually last for between 50 minutes to an hour, at the same time and place each week. A range of art materials will be available in each session and you can choose what to make or do, with freedom to express your experiences and thoughts in your own individual way. All images you make, and what you may say about them is treated as confidential Art Therapy can help with: addiction and recovery, anger, bullying, depression, low self esteem and confidence, grief and bereavement, stress and anxiety and much more! Group workshops are also available. Please contact us for further information. The cost for this specialist counselling service is only €50 Euro an appointment. *To cancel or postpone an appointment you must contact us 48 hours before your appointment is due to take place or you may be subject to a cancellation fee. (Caregivers must give written permission to us for young people under 16 and children to participate in art therapy). CRA Number: 20143237 CHY Number: 21366

Aware Support Groups offer a unique opportunity to talk openly about depression and its impact. We guarantee confidentiality within normal limits.

This means that confidentiality is guaranteed except:

• Where a person has immediate plans to self harm or plans to harm others.

• Where there is information that a child is at risk of, or has in the past been subjected to, harm/abuse/neglect.

Aware’s confidentiality policy is in line with best practice, and ‘Children First:National Guidance for the Protection and Welfare of Children’ (Department of Children and Youth Affairs, 2011).

Ongoing attendance at the support groups will give you a better understanding of your depression (and elation) and its impact on your relationships and your work or social life. The caring and supportive nature of the groups allows attendees to develop the confidence to identify mood changes at an earlier stage, and so minimise the disruption on daily life.

The Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (ISPCC) is Ireland’s oldest and most well-known children’s charity.  The ISPCC has a long, proud history of service delivery and advocacy on behalf of children.

Our Vision:

To see an Ireland where all children are heard and valued.

Our Work:
The ISPCC is the only organisation in Ireland providing unique 24 hour support services for children and young people through our Childline service. Childline receives the majority of its 2,300 calls and messages per day after 6pm each evening, when most other support services are closed. Childline receives no government funding, relying on the generosity of donors and volunteers to help run this vital, unique service.

ISPCC support workers and volunteer mentors also work with over 1,500 individual children and families nationwide each year through our suite of ISPCC support services  Our support workers encounter many issues such as emotional and behavioural problems, anxiety, grief, risk of drug and alcohol abuse and early school leaving.

The ISPCC is a child centred organisation providing a range of independent and unique services which are preventative and empowering in nature.

Our Targets:

    Inclusion – to include children in society
    Support – giving children the support they need to work through emotional problems
    Protection - preventing cruelty to children
    Consultation & Participation - seeing children as equals and letting them have a say
    Citizenship - valuing children’s rights as citizens


Our Funding:
The ISPCC receives less that 10% of funding from the Government and so has to fundraise 90% of its annual income; relying on the generosity of the general public, companies and schools. In 2011, we need to raise over €4.5 million to maintain our services and continue to be there, 24 hours a day, for children and young people in Ireland.

Our Services:
ChildFocus & TeenFocus: Therapeutic interventions for children and young people who are experiencing emotional or behavioural difficulties.

Youth Mentoring: A mentor volunteer is matched with a young person to support them.

Childline / Childline Online / TeenTxt: A FREE service for children and young people to access to talk about what's going on for them and what they would like to see happen.

We provide help for anyone who is having problems in their lives because they are drinking alcohol heavily or dependently. The treatment is done in your own home.This may also include an Alcohol Detox and this is done, again in your own home, by a registered, qualified nurse. Our treatment is called Integrated Treatment or Dual Diagnosis Care. Dual Diagnosis are the words you may hear when someone is talking about a person that has a mental health difficulty, like anxiety, stress or depression and along with that they also have an alcohol or drug problem. This means that the person is treated for their mental health condition along with their addiction or alcohol abuse problem. If both problems are diagnosed then both must be treated or neither will get better.

Play is a child’s natural way of expressing themselves, and Play Therapy provides them with an opportunity to “play out” their thoughts, feelings and problems in a non-directive way, in a safe environment with a caring therapist. In a Play Therapy session, the therapist follows the child’s lead and allows them to explore the wide range of toys available. As their relationship develops the child gains greater insight into their personal problems, through their play. The therapist uses a Play Therapy Tool Kit as well as specialist techniques such as empathetic listening and reflection to aid the therapeutic process. Play Therapy can also be more directive, for example when used with groups rather than individuals. The therapist will form a plan for the group, incorporating different parts of the Play Therapy Tool Kit, and working toward a therapeutic aim – for example, to increase self esteem, or to develop an understanding of loss.

At Play Therapy Mayo, play therapy is administered through one-on-on sessions. How this works is there will be a initial meeting with the parent/guardian to discuss the best way of working with the child. If the pre-therapy conditions are met the child will come to play therapy for a weekly hour long session. After the first 5 sessions there will be a parent review with the therapist to discuss how the child is engaging in the process.

What we do

We aim to empower people with mental ill health and their families through support, information and education. We also advocate for social change, promoting and defending the right of all those affected by mental ill health to equal rights and quality services.

Our core beliefs

All of the work we do is based on the following principles:

  • People with mental ill health should at all times be accorded equal rights, entitlements and opportunities available to any other member of society, and should be empowered to participate in the life of the community;
  • Family members, the majority of whom are the primary providers of mental healthcare in the community should be accorded full recognition and support by the institutions of the State, and be empowered to address their own needs;
  • A history of mental ill health should not be a cause for discrimination in any form, nor should it inhibit the individual’s right of equal access to training, education and employment/opportunities;
  • We should foster a partnership approach with other like-minded organisations.

Our vision

Our main organisational objectives are:
  1. To promote the development of parallel self-help groups for people with mental ill health and their family members and carers
  2. To empower people with mental ill health and their family members through support, information and education.
  3. To promote and defend the right of all those affected by mental ill health to person centred and appropriate services, which support recovery.
  4. To engage in public awareness activities aimed at challenging stigma and discrimination and promoting the rights and needs of all those affected by mental ill health.
  5. To influence positive policy changes in the provision of mental healthcare services.
