Your Questions about Play & Creative Therapy...

Where do I start? How do I make an appointment?

The best way to begin is for you to send me an email, we can then plan an initial phone call or meeting. There is no cost for this first discussion. Once I understand more about what you need, we can explore whether I can offer the right kind of support.

What kind of support do you offer?

I am a BAPT registered Play Therapist. I specialise in deepening the bonds of attachment. I work on a bespoke and integrative basis, responding to you and your family's needs. I can offer infant and family based Play Therapy sessions as well as 1.1 Play & Creative Therapy sessions with older children, young people and parents.


I offer trauma-informed Play and Creative Therapy sessions designed to follow the needs of the client, the infant, child and their family, including creative, clay, sensory, story, sand, water, outdoor, nurturing touch and movement together.

What sort of things can Play & Creative Therapy help with?

Reasons for referral might include trauma recovery, attachment and bonding related difficulties, bereavement, anxiety, stress, emotional regulation, parenting and big feelings...alongside a wide range of other issues. Referrals are also welcome during pregnancy.
