Hi, I'm Elaine, a child therapist focussing on play and creative arts therapy working with children and young people who are having a hard time managing big feelings, stressful situations and other life challenges. I also work together with families and those who support children to help them look after themselves as well as others. I work with children and 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.
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, and your child or teen can play, build things, draw things, make clay art, use construction kits and Lego, share their world in a sand tray and talk (or not) as the mood takes them.
