Creative Arts and Play For Wellbeing
for Chidren and Adults
This is a process which uses non-directive, reflective symbolic methods for self-discovery, processing and healing.
Nothing is judged or interpreted by me, all emotions are welcome.
I assist you to find your own answers and your own way forward. I completely trust that everything you need is already inside you and I assist you to find it and unlock your greatest potential.
It works for anybody aged 4 upwards (yes that's including adults!) It's a particularly effective method for children as their natural form of communication is play. For adults it is easier to process and find the words with these methods, and sometimes, no words are needed.
You have access to a Sandtray and bookcase of figures/symbols which provides a safe and protected space for you to tell the stories of your life, play out situations, make real changes and to discover what is in your unconscious world.
You also have the option to use clay, musical instruments and art materials to explore yourself and your world in a safe and confidential space.
These methods look simple but go deep and are a joyful and creative method of self evolution and discovery. You can find insight quickly and literally shift things in your world, creating the situations as you want them to be, then extending this into your real life.
I am a trained Therapeutic Play Practitioner with a Postgraduate Certificate from Leeds Beckett University and Play Therapy UK. I also hold a certificate in Level 3 Counselling Skills from Shrewsbury College. I seek regular clinical supervision. I have used these methods in my own self-work for over 3 years. I work informed by the theories of Carl Jung, Carl Rogers and Virginia Axline.
