I offer individual and group play therapy sessions for children and young people who are struggling emotionally and/or behaviourally, within the areas of Staffordshire and the West Midlands. Sessions generally take place within the child's school environment. I take referrals from schools, social workers, gps, fostering or adoption agencies, private referrals from parents/carers etc. Play Therapy is a form of counselling for children using a variety of toys instead of just talking.
