S was referred for Art Therapy following a horrific accident in which she saw her cousin drown whilst trying to save her sister. As a result of her trauma S lost all of her hair including her eyelashes which made her incredibly self-conscious. Art Therapy gave S a voice, an opportunity to share her fears, learn to grieve and slowly come to terms with her trauma. As she began to understand everything that had happened, her hair started to grow back. Over the course of a year she went from a reserved, self-conscious little girl to a gregarious, fun-loving child.
Her parents, who had been so concerned for their daughter, were absolutely delighted to get their little girl back.
