About me

I am a play and creative arts therapist who supports children and young people, aged 3-18, to manage big feelings, stressful situations and other life challenges.

I support children and young people who have Autism or an ASD diagnosis with AutPlay.

Orca, my therapy dog, works in my playroom too, if she's wanted by clients, supporting them with animal assisted play therapy (AAT).

I support children and young people with a wide range of worries, concerns and problems, from anxiety, through behavioural concerns, PTSD, bereavement and trauma to physical and sexual abuse.

If you are wondering if play therapy can support your child or teen, the answer is generally 'Yes!' but please feel free to get in contact for a commitment free chat.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a qualified play and creative arts therapist and started working in clinical practice in 2018.  As well as supporting children and young people, I support their families and other key adults too.

Before that I was a primary, secondary and special needs teacher and I have over thirty years of experience working with children and their families.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
