About Me

I am a qualified primary school teacher, play therapist and communication specialist. I am passionate about helping children fulfil their educational potential but also think it is equally important that their emotional wellbeing is cherished so that they enjoy school and want to learn.

I am passionate about this work, as seeing children thrive in their home and educational setting is essential. I believe education should be inclusive, engaging and fulfilling. When children are enjoying their learning they are motivated to push themselves further.

I also have an MA in Play Therapy and I am registered with the British Association of Play Therapists (BAPT). I use play in a creative way to help children of all ages who require support with a range of educational, social and emotional needs.

My creative and child-centred approach uses play, arts, music and movement – helping children to enjoy their learning.

I work with children in a gentle and child-led way, in which children can express their thoughts and feelings through play. I have a broad experience of working with children with a wide range of emotional and behavioural needs,  I am passionate that all children should thrive.

I particularly like to work outside as I find children readily respond with the natural world and helps them to relax and process their emotions.

Why Play Therapy for your child?

One in three children and teenagers experience mental health difficulties such as anxiety, low mood and depression. The earlier your child can access effective help, the more quickly and easily difficulties can be resolved.

Registered with the British Association of Play Therapists (BAPT) specialising in Play Therapy and Filial Therapy, I offer comprehensive assessment and evidence-based therapy tailored to an individual’s needs.

The main types of proven research based therapy I offer are Play Therapy and Filial Therapy:

Play Therapy: A child friendly and child centred therapeutic approach based on play that is tailored to a child’s needs, which is why it is effective especially in boosting confidence and self-esteem.

Within the Play Therapy sessions children can use objects (e.g. small world toys, musical instruments etc.), materials (e.g. clay, sand, water etc.), and movement (e.g. role play) in a creative and playful way to aid processing emotions. When children are engaged in play this helps in supporting them to process their emotions with myself the Play Therapist along supporting them.

Filial Therapy: Is similar to Play Therapy in that the whole family are involved together and it is extremely effective in helping to provide positive change.

My services include:
• Home and school education input
• Classroom learning strategies
• Parent & family support
• Training and advice to school staff and parents
• Behavioural support
• Collaborating with other professionals such as occupational and speech and language therapists

My Teaching Philosophy

Everyone can thrive and succeed in the right environment.

Something Sensational About Me

I believe that play is essential, when we are happy and engaged we are thriving and learning.
