Hi there, I’m Emma! I’m a registered Early Childhood Professional and qualified Play Therapist working with children and families on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland. Over the past 20 years, I’ve worked in the Early Childhood Sector as a Teacher, Early Intervention Facilitator, Play Therapist and Lead eKindy Teacher for rural and remote kindy programs. I hold a Blue Card, Yellow Card, professional liability insurance, first aid qualifications and attend regular Clinical Supervision.
I am passionate about the role of play in fostering a healthy childhood, my work with children has provided me with a rich and varied range of experiences. My practice draws upon play-based, holistic and evidence-based methods of therapeutic support. I enjoy bringing creativity, joy and fun to play therapy sessions.
I am committed to empowering parents to cultivate deeper parent-child connections and family relationships. Please reach out to schedule a 15-minute consultation to discuss your family's needs. I look forward to connecting with you and working to support you and your child.

Play therapy is a form of therapy that helps children express themselves through their natural language of play. Young children can often find it difficult to articulate their thoughts and feelings, but through play, they can communicate in a way that is natural and comfortable for them.
