I use person centred, attachment focused therapy, elements of CBT and art and play therapy to enable the most suitable therapy to meet the clients needs within a safe and empathetic space.
If you are feeling like things are getting you down and preventing you leading your life the way you would like to, perhaps you may feel anxious or depressed and feel you have lost your self-esteem and belief in yourself, this could be through difficult life events like stress, relationship, bereavement or something that happened to you in the past. Taking back control of your life and living the way you want to can be helped with therapy to gain a more positive happier future.

For your children, play and art therapies can enable self-expression in ways that talking may not.
I trained as a person-centred counsellor, which simply means our sessions are all about you. I’d like to welcome you to a confidential and non-judgemental safe space where you can talk freely to explore your inner-self. Together, we can discover any underlying issues behind the difficulties you are experiencing and by overcoming the ghosts of your past, you will be in a better place to move forward with your life.Having counselling enables you to rediscover yourself in a safe place, where you can go at your own pace and allow yourself to release your true emotions that you may have locked away.

Thank you for viewing my profile. This may be your first step in seeking counselling and the beginning of getting you on the road to better mental health. At times, it can help to talk to someone other than family or friends. You may wish to talk about and explore what is troubling you, such as anxiety, depression, anger, gender, low self-esteem, relationships, work/school, bereavement and loss, or other things that are causing you difficulties.

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 Scarborough or for a Scarborough 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 Scarborough, and play counsellors.
