Hi, I'm Elaine. I'm a child therapist & adolescent therapist who supports children, teens & their families to manage big feelings, stressful situations and other life challenges. I work with children & young people aged 3-18 (as well as some adults) and support them with a huge range of issues from anxiety and worries about school, fostering and adoption, to trauma, bereavement, sexual abuse and domestic violence, covering pretty much everything you can think of in-between. I'm an accredited play therapist who offers play & creative arts therapy, TraumaPlay and AutPlay (for children and teens with ASD) and I have a therapy dog too.
My specialist areas of training are trauma, PTSD, bereavement and other adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). I support children and young people with ASD and PANDAS and I am one of very few AutPlay and TraumaPlay practitioners in the UK. Often I work with Orca, the therapy dog, using animal-assisted therapy (AAT) if clients would like that.
The therapy I provide is totally client-led, with very few boundaries; your child or teen can play, build things, draw things, make clay art, use construction kits & Lego, share their world in a sand tray & talk (or not) as the mood takes them. I can help your child learn about their emotions, how to manage them positively & explore worrying issues & events.
