Specialising in a Systemic, Person-Centred Approach and Therapeutic Play Skills, I provide effective strategies and interventions to support and help children and their families who have psychological, behavioural and emotional needs to manage their relationships and situations more effectively. Throughout my career I have worked as a school counsellor as well as a systemic therapist in both private and public work.
I provide a therapy service to children adolescents and young adults using integrative modalities that include Systemic practice, play therapy and creative arts therapies to adults’ adolescents and children. In my work in the Mental Health profession, I developed an interest in the use of play and role – play as part of my therapeutic tool kit. The tool kit consists of clay, sand, puppets music art materials and therapeutic story. This then helps the children to demonstrate what is happening in their lives at their own pace and according to their own level. These activities are child-led, making the time spent with the child happy and purposeful. This breadth of therapy provision has a certain dynamic that I thrive on and I also believe it is the variety of this workflow of working with adults and children that most interests me. I offer parental and family support where appropriate. I work within the ethical framework guidelines of BACP and PTUK
