Play therapy is a type of therapy that helps people express themselves, explore their thoughts and feelings, and make sense of their life experiences. Play is a natural activity of learning, exploration and communication, therefore the medium is considered highly effective for helping both adults and children ‘play out’ what they may find difficult to put into words.
I work with children and adults of all ages in a safe and trusting environment helping shift perspectives of difficult experiences and increase self-esteem and confidence. I can work as part of a team or independently, and may suggest a referral for additional professional support as part of therapy. The main aim of a play therapist is to equip the client with better coping mechanisms for everyday life. This is to help them develop a more positive view of their place in the world.
