About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified play and creative arts therapist, I am also training to be a Registered Sandplay therapist. I work using an integrative, holistic model of therapy with all ages from 3 upwards. Using play and creative arts allows a child to express themselves through their natural language, play. Often children (and adults) do not have the words to express how they are feeling, connecting through play and creative arts allows them to make the unconscious conscious without having to use words. I provide a safe confidential space for clients to explore their thoughts and feelings in whichever way they need to.
I also work with parents to provide them with support, help them develop the dyadic relationship, where appropriate parents will come into the session with the child.
I work in a clinical practice, Spring Therapeutic Services, in Kempston, Bedfordshire. The practice is open through the pandemic. Where necessary children can also be seen in schools.
My first session
I offer a free initial consultation to discuss the needs of the client and to see if this would be the most appropriate service. Following this the relevant paperwork will be completed.
The client would then be welcomed to the first session where the boundaries of the sessions would be explained.
Sessions are held at the same time, in the same place every week, to provide consistency and safety for the client.
