About me

At ABC I offer personalised, flexible talking, play and creative play therapy that is suitable for any child or young person (4-18 years) who is experiencing difficulties - whether it's mental health concerns, behavioral issues or a problem relating to family or school/college. The therapy is designed to help children feel safe and supported through their healing journey, and as I am also certified Autplay therapist, can also be very beneficial for children with neurological issues - such as ASD, PDA and ADHD.

The therapy room at Brent Knoll is fully equipped and includes a calming area, sand tray and sensory toys, as well as a more ‘grown-up’ area for older children. Initial assessments are free of charge and usually last around 30 minutes. Sessions are normally for 1 hour. But, please give me a call on 07535 673665 or email for further details.
