About me and my therapy practice
I am a Certified Play and Creative Arts Therapist and I work in an integrative, holistic way.
I work in a holistic, integrated, child-centred way, using both a non directive and directive approach depending on therapeutic need. I have experience working with children who have developmental trauma, who have experienced abuse, who are struggling with anxiety, self harm, low self esteem. I also have experience working with children who are Autistic or who have ADHD. I offer a minimum of 12 sessions, or more long term therapy as required.
I am a Certified Play Therapist (PTUK) and regulated by the Professional Standards Authority. I am based in Stroud and I work in Gloucestershire and surrounding areas.
I also offer a 10 session supportive intervention for parents called 'Child Parent Relationship Training' and I am a Foundational Theraplay Practitioner.
Helping children who have experienced trauma, adverse childhood experiences, or who display emotional and/or behavioural difficulties. Working alongside parents and schools to improve children's mental health through play-based and creative arts therapy.
I am also a facilitator for Child and Parent Relational Therapy (CPRT) which is a ten-week filial play intervention improving and supporting family relationships and child behaviours.
I also offer Theraplay® as a Foundational Theraplay® Practitioner.
My first session
Please contact me to discuss your needs and to see whether I am the right person to work with your child. After an initial telephone consultation we will decide whether to meet for an introductory meeting which lasts an hour. After that, if you wish to continue I will then have an introductory session with your child which lasts 30 minutes to 45 minutes. If you and your child wish to proceed I will then meet with your child for 45 minute sessions once a week.
