Creative therapy is a powerful form of therapy that helps bring talking and creativity together. The creative element to this therapy brings a gentle aspect to those who feel that "just talking" is very difficult. Sessions are weekly and by appointment only.
Enhancing Professional Development
I work with healthcare, school, and youth organisation professionals to enhance their skills set for working with young people who are facing challenges in their lives. I have worked with marketing and app development companies who wish to target young people in a safe and age appropriate way. I recognise that technology is at the forefront of a young person's life, and I am always looking for innovative ways to allow technology to enhance a young persons life without it becoming dangerous or damaging their mental health.
Helping Parents Connect
Suitable for those who feel they would like to enhance their parenting skills or would like to take some advice before committing to play therapy. These sessions aim to enhance your natural ability and embrace the developmental changes and challenges that are experienced throughout childhood.
