About me

Inspire Play Therapy offers Emotional and Behavioural support to children in Sussex. Ideally you would not want to travel for more than 30 minutes to Shoreham By Sea for sessions with your child. 

As a qualified supervisor I offer Clinical Supervision to local therapists and trainees face to face or further afield via Skype.

As a qualified practitioner Inspire Play Therapy offers bespoke packages of support including training and workshops, parent child relationship support, and parenting.
