About

Hi I’m Kirsty, I work with Parents and children, using both talking and creative play therapy. I can help if your child is suffering from anxiety, displays challenging behaviours, autism, ADHD, PDA, eating issues, school refusal & much more. I work with both Parent and child - I wholeheartedly believe that the parent is the best catalyst for change in their child’s mental health and well-being. I offer child play therapy sessions, parent counselling sessions and parent child attachment sessions. I also work with parents who have suffered birth trauma, postnatal depression and ptsd and can work with parent child attachment.
Being a parent can be challenging, it can also be lonely. As a Mother of 5 children, including two boys who are Autistic with Pathological demand avoidant profile & ADHD, I have first hand experience of the difficulties Parenting can throw at us. I offer a friendly, trusting and non judgemental space to discuss the challenges your facing.
Every family is different, I can help support you & your family through chaos & difficulties by tailoring the therapy to suit your needs. I use a mixture of talking & creative therapies including sandtray, art, play & much more. I use theories such as positive and therapeutic parenting in order to empower parents to understand their child’s behaviours.
