Empowering children through their play. 

January - September 2020 news

All sessions have now been postponed for the time being to keep us all safe and hopefully healthy. I have offered my clients' parents email support while the sessions are on hold.

I am also considering creating a monthly play therapy newsletter with ideas and activities and theory and research. If you would like to receive this newsletter, please let me know your email address. Take care and keep safe.
