In a purpose built play room in my sunny garden, your child can play , using art and craft, sand, music, role play and story telling to explore their difficulties in a safe supported way.
I work with school aged children who are struggling to manage their emotions and behaviours at home and in school which may be due to many outside influences, early years traumas, environmental difficulties etc. Clients come to Play Therapy sessions to find a safe, supportive space where they can use their natural language of Play to work their difficulties out, in a non-judgemental, child-led environment, gaining understanding of their difficulties and finding ways to manage these for a more settled and healthier future.

Some of the healing tools I offer in my practice are art, mindfulness, meditation, body movement, breathing, sacred geometry, poetry, play therapy and other creative methods or we can talk.
Is it difficult for yourself to connect to your emotions and feelings? Sometimes it is complicated to find a link to enable us express freely. Unintentionally, we can create a habit in which we suppress, run away, deny or manipulate our emotions. It is normal to try to push away feelings of discomfort like stress, fear or pain; but there are tools you can learn to help you cope with these emotions in a healthy way. Instead of denying, distracting yourself, manipulating or disconnecting, you can accept, observe, acknowledge and connect deeply with your feelings.

Hello I’m Jeni. As an experienced Dramatherapist I have found that when things are too hard to talk about initially, creativity can help us to express and process and then release what no longer serves us. My private practice allows me to work online with adults, and young people, and in a Primary school with a specialist speech and language unit. I have also worked in numerous Secondary schools. I have experience in working with anxiety, low self esteem, pre and post bereavement, fostering and adoption (life story work) neurodiversity and survivors of sexual assault

Whether you are an adolescent, adult, sports person or busy executive there are some common themes that resonate with my clients: Finding it hard to make decisions - fear of getting it wrong and constantly worrying/Being less tolerant, irritable over things that wouldn't normally bother you/Needing to do everything perfectly and setting high unrealistic expectations resulting in procrastination/Never feeling you have done enough/A very critical internal voice - Exhausting! Most of my clients want to quieten that negative voice and find ways to achieve and live life without the gnawing anxiety and self-doubt

I usually work slowly and gradually with my clients over a longer period of time. This means I offer a very vital safe, quiet, and private space to speak and be. I particularly enjoy supporting young children ( from 3 years old to 13 years old) who are feeling lost and unsure of themselves. They may struggle to set clear boundaries with others or find that they are not able to express their own feelings.

Play Therapy Counsellors
Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counseling 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 behavior and identify issues.
