My creative expressive tools give the opportunity for clients to use play , stories, character work, metaphors, writing and sensory play in order to explore and express themselves.
No matter what you wish to explore I offer an open and confidential service that provides my clients with the utmost safety, professionalism and care. As I work from a creative expressive model I use creative techniques to allow my clients to be distanced from experiences or memories they may find difficulty accessing but know they want to explore. My goal is to help you achieve your goals, this is your therapy I am the facilitator who will offer you a safe space, guidance and support.

As a Creative Arts Therapist I can help your child and or teenager to express themselves, at their own pace, through the use of art, play , clay, sand tray and other therapeutic interventions, which can have a profound effect for resolving difficult issues.
Hello, my name is Cara, I’m a Creative Arts Therapist and I am guessing you are here because you're worried about a child or teenager in your life. Maybe your child/teenager is acting out and you just don’t know what to do next, maybe they’ve been through a difficult experience recently or in the past and need some help processing what happened to them. I’ve worked with many children and I want to be able to offer your child a safe and confidential environment to explore what is going on for them right now They can then begin to feel better about themselves and continue to have the positive experiences from life that they deserve.

This can be achieved through play therapy and providing a safe space away from friends, family and Teachers.
One of the most important elements of counselling is confidentiality. You may be going through a difficult time, experiencing stress, going through life changes, feeling vulnerable or just need to share your most private thoughts and feelings. I would like to assure you that you can do this in a safe and trustful place. Your personal details or any information you share will stay only in the counselling room. To make your counselling experience a positive one, I assure you that I will provide a trusting and non judgemental environment. I am currently offering Counselling via Telephone and Video (zoom).

It can be really tough to actually talk about what is going on for you. Sometimes we feel shame or fear at the prospect of sharing these feelings. Sometimes there just aren't words for those feelings. I offer a space in which whatever you wish to talk about is fine. I am not easily shocked! Our time spent together will involve creating a safe space in which you can explore whatever it is that you want or need. I like to hold a space where I embrace that everybody is unique and that nobody is "perfect." I also understand the drive to achieve that perfection and how difficult it can be balancing the two.

I am a person centered and psychodynamic counsellor incorporating CBT and solution focused techniques. I work a lot with the unconscious mind; 95 percent of brain activity is beyond our conscious awareness, so it's helpful to delve into the root of our problems that may be hidden from our consciousness. I work creatively with adults, young people and children using art therapy, guided visualisations and stone work to make the therapy experience less intimidating. I teach mindfulness, help people grow in personal development and overcoming past traumas.

Hello my name is Donna. The decision to see a counsellor can be very frightening, but if you are reading this, then you have made a very brave step with your own self care. There are times in our lives, especially in current times when we are instructed to self Isolate, when it is even more important to have someone to talk too. I will make every attempt to provide you with a safe and comfortable space in which to explore whatever may be concerning you. My main aim is provide a safe, non- judgemental space where we can build an open & honest relationship.

1:1 Play Therapy allows the child to chose the way they would like to express themselves, I use a range of techniques which are usually non directive-the child chooses and I follow.
I am committed to working with children who are showing through their behaviour that they are in need of extra support. Play is a child’s natural way of expressing themselves and through play and creative arts therapy the child can make sense of what is going on in their lives. I support children who are dealing with a range of difficulties for example bereavement, anxiety, anger, bullying or divorce. I create a warm and welcoming environment where they feel safe and are able to express how they are feeling, this may be consciously or unconsciously.

I do this through a provision of therapeutic interventions and family support ( play therapy , baby bonding, filial play coaching, DDP), in order to help children improve their emotional well-being and support them to reach their fullest potential.
It's not easy being a parent and it's not easy knowing that your child is going through a tough time. You might have noticed that their behaviour has become really difficult to handle and it is putting a strain on family life. Teachers might have noticed this in the classroom too. Sometimes, you might wonder if this is something you are going to have get used to. It doesn't have to be this way. I can help your child and your family have a well-deserved meaningful life, filled with happier memories.

As a full member of the UKCP & MBACP I have undergone years of in-depth specialist training to understand the complexity of the young brain, developmental stages but to also offer a variety of individual therapeutic approaches, including play , creative and talking.
I am an experienced Child, Young Person and Parent Psychotherapist based in Harrogate. There are times when we all struggle emotionally. For children and young people it can often be difficult to understand their own emotions or be able to express their thoughts. Sometimes this leads to overwhelming and confusing feelings, with behaviours that seems stuck, possibly resulting in low self-esteem and struggles with relationships. Counselling and creative therapy provides a safe and supportive space to explore emotions, feelings, develop an understanding of our thoughts whilst building communication skills and emotional resilience.

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

If you're looking for play therapy in Leicester or for a Leicester play therapy counsellor, these professionals provide play therapy, play therapy children, child play therapy, play therapy for children, sandplay therapy, family play therapy and group play therapy. They include play therapists, play psychologists, play psychotherapists in Leicester, and play counsellors.
