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.

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.

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.

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.

I use a combination of talking therapy, interpretative play and the use of creative mediums such as arts, crafts and sand tray.
When our children experience significant emotional distress, it is extremely difficult for them and for you. I aim to support a child or young person with dignity and respect, working with a warm, caring and sensitive individual approach to suit their needs. I use the relationship between myself and the child at the centre of the therapy. I then guide the therapeutic process using theories from psychoanalysis, Gestalt theory and neuroscience's somatic theories. This knowledge informs my understanding of a child's developmental traumas, often the foundations of the current problematic thinking and behaviours being experienced.

I use a range of creative arts therapy techniques including play , sand-tray, puppets, drama and music therapy which is proven to be highly effective for treating a range of wellbeing and mental health issues.
Are you worried or concerned about your child's moods or behaviours? Therapy can really help children and adolescents to understand themselves and their emotions, process difficult life events, repair and develop relationships and find a sense of security and happiness. When children feel better about themselves, worrying and difficult behaviour drops away.

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 Thrapston or for a Thrapston 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 Thrapston, and play counsellors.
