About

I am a Play therapist who works primarily with children aged 4 to 12. Children often show their need for help through their behaviour. They may be struggling to form friends, getting into trouble at school, falling behind in their learning etc. There are many reasons a child may benefit from therapy. These may include abuse, domestic violence, loss of a loved one (including a pet), bullying, divorce, illness. You may not even know why the child is struggling, just that they are. By the end of therapy I hope that the child will feel happier in themselves and will have developed more resiliance to be able to manage future events.
It can be really hard to admit that your child is in need of extra help, but seeing someone who is not part of your family can be just what they need. They can express their anger or hurt without worrying about upsetting those close to them. This is often why children do not tell their families how they feel.
