Being a passionate advocate for Non-Directive Child-Centred Therapy my approach is gentle and respectful of the child and I specialise in working therapeutically with families of children of 2 to 10 years old through integrating with non-directive Child Centred Play Therapy that is neuroscience and evidence-based. I recognise the importance of supporting parents in their involvement in therapy with their children and in the intergenerational future of Filial therapy in helping parents to become therapeutic agents for their children. I have a special interest integrating this modality in working with children on the Autism Spectrum.
At Child Play Therapy we provide a safe and supportive environment for children and their families who are experiencing varied emotional, behavioural, social, developmental and physical difficulties. Our goal is to contribute to the health of our community working in collaboration with educators, health professionals and varied organisations.
Our aim is to support your child by addressing their emotional and psychological wellbeing goals inclusive of your individual needs and wishes as a family. The therapeutic approaches we use to create an individualised intervention are underpinned by the Neurosequential Model of therapeutics developed by Dr Bruce Perry, as well as Dr Porges' Polyvagal Theory.
