Working with Children
In my work with children, through metaphor and play therapy, my aim is to enable children to understand and more effectively manage their emotions and behaviour, to feel free to be more curious, and to find their voice and tell their story. In achieving these aims, I can assist in building a child's emotional resilience and promote their general well-being, at home, in school and in the wider community.
Creativity helps young children develop their self-awareness and their understanding of others and the world around them. Play is the language of a child and crucial to their development. My background as an actress enables me to be playful and creative with a child, to enter the child's world, whilst maintaining my role as observer and counsellor.
