The Maypole Project provides a unique pattern of emotional psychological/social support which is based on and led by the families’ needs. It’s unique because of the way that it’s provided; flexible and on-going, professional and understanding.
Children who have been diagnosed with a chronic illness between the ages of 0 – 18 can access our support.
When a family is referred to The Maypole Project, where it is possible, we suggest a meeting with the whole family. In this meeting we explain all the services we provide and, through this initial session, begin to help the family and/or each family member to decide what support they need. In this way our flexible support can be designed to fit each person’s needs.
On-going support for the whole family can be through supportive home visits or family therapy.
“The Maypole Project has helped us as a whole family. This is really important as everyone in the family is affected by the illness, not just me. I am truly grateful for their help”.
Drama Therapy sessions at The Maypole Project!
Drama Therapy aims for participants to use their dramatic creativity to explore their self expression. An example of a drama therapy exercise is to work with a client’s story which will progress into an exploration of personal identification and expression.
An initial taster session can provide an insight into drama as a therapeutic process through exercises such as: warm up and checking in, the client’s story, closing the session and checking out.
Depending on if a Drama Therapy is an individual or group intervention, or for adults or children, the sessions last between 30 minutes – an hour and a half. This will be established at or before the start of sessions.
