Connect with The Playful Therapist
I'm an integrative Child Play Therapist and also work with Deakin University as a clinical supervisor and casual academic. I work with children from 2 - 10 years old, who may be experiencing social, emotional and behavioural challenges. I also enjoy working with parents to formulate goals and develop strategies to empower and promote emotional wellness. I specialise in assisting children in play development and building on social relationships with peers. I also support school readiness goals, as well as assisting children with anxiety, stress management, and toileting fears.
My approach is based on client centred principles and use evidence based therapeutic approaches with children and families. I work holistically, working alongside fellow allied health colleagues, services, schools and kindergartens to ensure the child and family are well supported. Some therapeutic approaches are; Learn to Play, Humanistic and Filial Therapy
I have complete acceptance of the child and allow them to explore their social and emotional world in a safe and secure way, making the therapeutic journey meaningful to them. Various therapeutic approaches are used to ensure the child feels safe and empowered when exploring their internal world.
