I am experienced in a range of therapeutic approaches, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness techniques and Integrative Play Therapy .
I work with clients across the lifespan (age 4 and above) to address a variety of life challenges, such as managing stress, anxiety and depression, as well as struggles with life transitions. Finding hope and recognising your resources can feel challenging when going through a rough patch. Through therapy sessions, I’ll support you in brainstorming for solutions to overcome your difficulties and celebrate your unique strengths. I also have a special interest in neurodiversity and the female presentation of ASD. Neurodiversity can often bring invisible challenges. Finding the right support from an understanding person is essential.

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 Melbourne or for a Melbourne 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 Melbourne, and play counsellors.
