About me

The services I offer are tailored to children and young people. I use a creative approach that includes art resources, sand and toys to allows my clients to choose their own way of working. I provide a non-judgemental, confidential space for the children to express themselves freely.

I aim to provide the best support I can for the children and families, so that they are able to continue developing and do well in their future.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Certified Play Therapist with PTUK and have experience of working with children in mainstream schools as well as those with special educational needs.

My initial qualifications are as a primary teacher and re-trained as a play therapist when I saw the need to support children with their mental health as well as their academic work.

I have worked with children who have learning difficulties, Autism, ADHD, Down Syndrome, Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and many more.

I also have experience in supporting children following adoption, bullying, family bereavement, abuse, accidents, anger/rage, anxiety and depression.

Please feel free to contact me or take a look at my website to see how I might be able to help.
