Space to Play
Hello, I’m Amy Skelton I am a PTUK certified Play Therapist and Therapeutic Play Practitioner with fifteen years of experience working with children and young people across Northampton and the surrounding areas.
If your child is experiencing low wellbeing, they may find the simplest of daily tasks a struggle, such as making friends or maintaining concentration. Play Therapy /Integrative art therapy could be the answer! Children may not be able to process their own emotions or articulate problems to parents or other adults. Therapeutic Play led by a trained therapist can help your child to explore their feelings and gain resilience in a safe and non-judgmental space.

It's OK not to be OK! Many of us experience low mood, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, loss and are victims of trauma, sexual abuse and more. These experiences can have an huge impact on our daily lives. We are living through pressing times but remember, your mental health is important. It is really difficult to talk about you feel and what you have experienced in life. I am able to adapt and tailor sessions to your individual needs. Please reach out.

Hey there! Welcome. How are you? Sometimes there are too many words and sometimes there are no words. Sometimes it’s just a feeling on the inside or a weight on the outside. Or maybe it is more identifiable for you... Perhaps you're stressed at work? Feeling lost in life? Going through big changes? Not feeling yourself? Struggling with your identity, sexuality, health, or relationships? Dealing with painful life events? Whatever it feels like for you, whether you can explain the feeling or not, I'm here for you and I'm ready to listen and you will be heard. You deserve to be heard. You deserve to be happy.

Accessing therapy can be daunting and the hardest steps are often at the beginning of the journey towards change and understanding. At times we do not understand why we are feeling the way we are, sometimes we feel misunderstood and often we hide the pain we are feeling or have been carrying with us for so long. It may seem there is no hope and change is not possible. However we sometimes just need that sincere and committed person who will not judge us, who will listen to us and importantly challenge us in a way that is caring and respectful joining us on this journey of growth and change.

If you (or your child) are seeking support to overcome some challenges in your life, counselling is a great way to explore your difficulties in a safe and non-judgmental space. A key part of the counselling process is the therapeutic relationship and I believe that due to my age this allows me to support you in greater ways. I empathise and understand the anxieties and pressures put on you by school/exams/university, the impact that growing up with social media and having an online persona can have on your self-esteem, how delicate family/friend relationships can be and the difficulties they can put onto you.

Are you the person feeling the words are not enough to express your emotions? Have you always been attracted to visual, colour, image or imagination? I offer deepening of the therapeutic impact with the use of creativity, which existed before humans learned to talk. I meet you where you are and we will take it from there. I worked with clients struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, abuse, lack of self esteem, identity issues and self harm- both adults and young people. You may need to reach beyond language to describe and explore the chaos inside and then move towards the shift of transformation.

I am able to use different methods in my therapy practice, whether it is art, play , metaphors in storytelling or symbols in the sand to help children make sense of their overwhelming feelings or difficult experiences.
Growing up has never been easy but perhaps due to the ever-changing circumstances, it is becoming even more difficult for children and young people with so many things they have to navigate or are exposed to. When children struggle emotionally, whether they are toddlers or teenagers, either their behaviour detoriate or unhealthy ways to deal with those strong emotions emerge. Either option can be scary and not many will be willing to talk about what is in their mind or is upsetting them.

Do you play the guitar? Do you have other ways to self-soothe or manage your emotions? Books maybe, reading and writing.
I can work with you around family issues, teen problems, child behaviour, ASC issues, illness and disability. I will support, collaborate and try to make sense of what is going on. All things eventually pass - I will offer to weather the storm with you. I won’t be judging you or not taking you seriously. We will work together - and it will be work - but we will also aim to have fun and be creative in our work.

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 Northampton or for a Northampton 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 Northampton, and play counsellors.
