Play therapy is one of the most effective forms of child therapy because play is a child ’s language and toys are their words.
Hello, I’m Zoe. I am a play and creative arts therapist based in Peterborough and I see children from 3 to 16. Do you know a child with big emotions? Are these emotions hard to manage? Play therapy can help children process their emotions and make sense of their worlds. I also offer parenting support. I know how hard parenting can be and I’m passionate about offering a holistic service. I am an advocate of therapeutic parenting, playful parenting and attachment play. I like to work with parents to help support the therapeutic process and provide ways to foster co-operation, connection and play.

It can lonely and difficult when talking to family or friends is not always enough. Are you struggling with anxiety, stress or life in general and not sure where to turn next? Is a relationship problem causing upset or does low self esteem hold you back? Have you survived sexual abuse/assault and need space to talk so shame, fear and guilt don't control you. Are you struggling to cope after a loss or a bereavement and need to be heard. Being able to talk confidentially about your issues can help gain back a sense of control and to move forward. I also offer support for clients on the asexual spectrum and adults with ADHD.

Above all, I understand how important it is for you to be heard and not judged. I offer a safe space to talk in complete confidence, and with respect. Counselling enables us to express our thoughts and feelings in order to make positive changes. Peace of mind may seem so distant to you right now, it need not be. The ability to change is within you, I can help you to make those changes. I am concerned with what has happened to you, and not exclusively what is perceived to be wrong with you.

I am a qualified play therapist and child and parent relationship trainer. I work with children and their families as a therapist and coach. Parents get in touch for an array of reasons. Play therapy offers a safe space where children can process difficult emotions and experiences, build their confidence, reduce their anxiety and begin to recognise and regulate their emotions amongst many other things. CPRT offers parents an opportunity to learn the child centred skills play therapists use in the playroom which enable a parent to respond to behaviours rather than react and reduce conflict at home.

Child Counsellors

Do I need to attend therapy with my child?

Parents are an integral part of a child’s therapy, but the specifics of their involvement vary. If your child is young, you may attend most or all sessions; if your child is older, you may attend a few sessions or none; sometimes a therapist may ask you to have a session on your own. Whatever the arrangement, you should expect to work collaboratively with the therapist, your child, and your family members to take steps to help support your child.

How long are sessions with child therapists?

Children’s therapy sessions can last 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 60 minutes. The length of the session may depend on your child’s age and the type of therapy practiced. You can discuss this with therapists you consult and the one you ultimately move forward with.

How do I get a child to agree to seek therapy?

The best approach is to have an open-ended conversation with your child about how they’re doing and what they might be struggling with. When you raise therapy, discuss the concept in an age-appropriate way, for example explaining that a therapist’s job is to help kids handle their hard or uncomfortable feelings. Frame therapy positively, as an opportunity to explore and build emotional skills—it’s an important tool in the toolbox to help kids feel their best.

How can I tell if a therapist is a good fit for my child?

A child needs to feel comfortable opening up about their thoughts and feelings, so if your child feels a sense of comfort, ease, and trust with their therapist, that’s a great sign. In addition, a therapist is a good fit for your child if the two can communicate well together; a clinician should be able to communicate clearly, effectively, and in an age-appropriate manner.
