  • Background in teaching, and senior leadership in primary schools.
  • Interest in Inclusion and SEND
  • I have worked as a play therapist in school and seeing private clients as well as seeing children through charities and the Adoption Support Fund.
  • During COVID-19 I have delivered online therapy as well as providing parent support via telephone.
  • I work initially non directively (following the child's direction) but use integrative and creative methods as appropriate. As a play therapist I work with and alongside the child, allowing them to take the lead and bring to the session what they wish to share. This allows them to feel empowered, respected, listened to and valued.
  • I am child centred and work in partnership with parents, carers and families.
  • I have delivered training and workshops to schools and nursery settings around attachment and therapeutic responses.
  • I am committed to further developing my skills and knowledge to best meet the needs of my clients.
