welcome to zaktikarra art for well-being

Based in South Yorkshire, we work within schools and a variety of establishments providing individual and group therapy. Our main emphasis is utilising creativity to enable people overcome emotional difficulties and realise their full potential.

Young people and parents often tell us that they prefer to speak to someone at school. Schools like it too because providing support to your children within your establishment reduces time out of the classroom to attend to appointments elsewhere. Working alongside you, we can also provide information for Team Around the Child and Safeguarding purposes, support CAMHS referrals if required and provide therapeutic services to your staff.

Suitable referrals to therapy might be those who are experiencing emotional and behavioural difficulties that are impacting on their ability to thrive. It may benefit individuals who may be; low mood; difficulty expressing angry feelings; difficulty making friends easily; low self-esteem; anxiety; withdrawn; difficulty coping with life circumstances; deliberate self-harm; attachment and relationship difficulties. We will liaise with parents and other professionals, as regular contact is important.

Individual sessions are usually weekly lasting 50 minutes whereas group sessions can be between 1 ½-2 hours in duration. Groups of 6-8, often with the therapist and a co-therapist need to be a mix of personalities to allow therapeutic work to be done.

We do not accept referrals if a person is already receiving therapy or counselling.

The service we offer is flexible and will be pleased to meet with you to explore ways that we can meet your specific needs.

Registration with the Healthcare and Care Professions Council allows practice as an Art Psychotherapist and our therapists have been subject to an Enhanced DBS Check.
