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.

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!

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 Kew or for a Kew 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 Kew, and play counsellors.
