About me and my therapy practice

I primarily work as a Child-Centred Play Therapist, but I also offer a family intervention called Filial Therapy.

Play Therapy is a therapeutic intervention designed specifically for children. It is derived from the person-centred model of therapy, with the use of toys and play to provide children with the opportunity to communicate in their own way and at their own pace. Any child can encounter a problem that they and their families have difficulty coping with. Children can respond to challenges in a huge variety of different ways; they may find it hard to manage feelings of anger or anxiety, they may become withdrawn or start having issues in their relationships with family or peers. These difficulties may emerge following a significant event in the child's life such as a bereavement or a change in family circumstances, or they may seemingly come out of nowhere. It can be difficult for parents to seek out support, as there is a lot of pressure on parents to 'sort it out' themselves and there may be a worry that professionals will blame parents. Play therapists can work with parents to support children through difficult times.

I am very passionate about Play Therapy and how it can help children and families. I believe that by providing children with mental health support when they need it, we are enhancing their resilience and providing them with tools and strategies that they can use throughout their lives when they are faced with difficult situations.

Working with children is never done in isolation and I have found it vital to work with the system around the child to support the process of therapeutic change. This includes families, schools and other professionals involved with the child. I have completed further training in Filial Therapy, an approach in which parents are supported to become the agents of therapeutic change for their children. I have also completed a Foundation in Systemic Practice which supports my work with parents and families.
