PLAY THERAPY IN SCHOOLS AND ARRANGED BY PARENTS
Play therapy is suitable for children who have experienced emotional disruptions in their lives, such as bereavements, family breakdown or separation, coping with a disability, children in foster care or managing emotions or behaviour.
Having worked in schools for the past 15 years I have a strong understanding of the pressures on staff, teaching and learning and understanding the needs of individual children. As a play therapist working in a school I can provide a safe, therapeutic space for children who are struggling to manage due to emotional difficulties as well as providing staff with strategies to support them to learn.
Please contact me directly for fees.
I am able to deliver training up to 2 ½ hours (to be negotiated) to staff in schools or children’s centres on the following topics:
- The Use of Therapeutic Play Skills In A Primary Setting.
- The Use of Therapeutic Play Skills In A Early Years Setting.
- Understanding Attachment.
- Supporting Children with Emotional or Behavioural Difficulties.
As part of a Full Day package I can offer to work with 3 to 4 children.
I am also able to provide a informal session or surgery for teachers who may wish to think about any particular children in their classroom who are struggling emotionally which may in turn be impacting on their behaviour or learning progress. This time to reflect together might be an opportunity to think about strategies to support the child in school as well as enabling staff to feel more confident in understanding their inner world and how best to meet their needs.
My fee for this includes record keeping, play equipment, external supervision, transport, BAPT membership and professional indemnity insurance.
As part of a morning or afternoon working with 1- 2 children, record keeping, equipment, external supervision, transport and professional indemnity insurance.
Please contact me for further information on fees and to discuss the requirements of your particular setting.
