Holistic play therapy
Clinical Social Work/Therapist
I am trained in various therapeutic modalities; humanistic/child centred, filial ( family therapy), systemic, integrative, and the learn to play therapy model.
Play therapy is a child led therapeutic approach that enables children to communicate and express their innermost thoughts and feelings, through play. This allows therapists to provide intervention for a variety of support areas and mental health needs. Play therapists are informed by a child’s play, and through this we are also able to provide further support to parents and scaffold a deeper understanding of their child, using play themes.

Better relationships are life giving but figuring out how to relate can be tricky. We oscillate between feeling connected, then disconnected and we often get stuck in a cycle of misunderstanding. Want to improve your interaction and be understood? Need help to address uncertainty and clarify need? Want insight into why you're getting stuck? Need help to brainstorm options and change the way you relate? We all struggle and we all have issues that we need to address, so let's do it... 0404 480 316

Don't expect to see a change if you don't make one. I enable positive change. My clients may have seen a therapist or coach before, but it didn't change anything for them. They then come to me. They want to make lasting positive change in their lives, but they need somebody to give them structured tools and support them in the growth process. Change can be good, but it is not easy. Typically, my clients come to me feeling that living on auto-pilot or that they have lost touch with who they are at their core. They desire more life satisfaction and are prepared to work for it. They want to thrive not just survive.

We are not taught how to relate and often we just make it up as we go, doing the best we can with what we have or have learned. When relationships break down, getting support is better than struggling alone. I work with couples and individuals in relationship crisis, who are experiencing difficulties from ongoing conflict or anger issues, communication breakdown, loss of trust, infidelity, major life transitions, grief and anxiety. I work with couples considering ending their relationships or who have lost the spark of passion and intimacy. I specialise in repeating patterns of behaviour stemming from past traumas or experiences.
