Do you feel overwhelmed or are you finding it difficult to cope? Part of being human and living life, means that there are times when we need extra support, but it isn't always easy to reach out. Other times it's hard to reach out because we've experienced things so painful and traumatic that it feels like you will never be understood. This often leaves us feeling unworthy, not good enough and unsafe and burdened with a pain that can never be shared.

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, AASW
Verified
Hi, I'm Freya. I've been counselling for over 25 years, and a year ago started incorporating my animals (horses, dogs, cats) into my therapeutic practice. I work with all ages, and the people I work with are as unique as the issues they want to address. My clients are individuals, couples, and children. I have lived experience of neurodiversity (ASD, ADHD, Dyslexia, HSP) and consequently work with a lot of people who are neurodiverse themselves. My work focusses on understanding why we are the way we are, combined with techniques that foster change and growth, with the end goal of increased well being and resilience.

Most people assume that intensive work happens when you see a talk therapist, I can assure you that the most transformative healing occurs while engaging our curiosity, imagination & play .
My journey of adversity, grief, loss & marginalisation led me to uncovering the intelligence of our brain & nervous system. Via my insight that 'repeatedly talking 'about' my challenges didn't serve me, I specialised in body-based creative modalities. I focus on body-based processes that ground us in the tumultuous inner world and regulate us in the outer environment I am an expert in inviting creative expression, building strength & somatic resourcing and sensory bottom-up awareness. I affirm all abilities, gender preferences, cultural identities and neurodivergence. I am interested in adapting the therapeutic processes to meet U.

We play games, practice social skills & talk about stuff.
In 1997 at RCH I set up groups for socially isolated teens with ASD, anxiety, shyness, bullying, sensory deficits, cognitive & receptive language deficits & so on. Teens say that they enjoy the "judgement free space", the belonging. Their confidence grows in the groups. Parents say that they are keen and organised to come to the groups, it is the highlight of their week. They relax. I delved into the needs of socially isolated teens through my Psychodrama thesis called "Friends Are The Best Medicine". I also run Tuning Into Kids/Teens groups for parents & Family Therapy. Telehealth is available for kids/teens/parent/families!

Clients can expect collaboration and child/client-centred practice emphasising relational attunement, compassion, and trauma sensitivity as the elements necessary for change and healing.

Play Therapy Counsellors
Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counselling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys--such as playhouses and dolls--to understand the child's behaviour and identify issues.

If you're looking for play therapy in Creswick or for a Creswick play therapy counsellor, these professionals provide play therapy, play therapy children, child play therapy, play therapy for children, sandplay therapy, family play therapy and group play therapy. They include play therapists, play psychologists, play psychotherapists in Creswick, and play counsellors.
