Play & Creative Arts Therapy

Play and Creative Arts Therapies are effective and often powerful interventions to help people achieve changes in their emotional lives, thoughts and behaviour. 


Based on theoretical principles, rhe above techniques allow a type of communication about inner experiences that is different to traditional ‘talking therapies.’

Attachment focused therapy

Families can become locked in their learnt ways of relating. 


Family therapy can help move families forward to renewed healthier and happier relationships.


Families in trauma can have quite specific needs. Therapeutic interventions with a focus on  attachment, DDP and PACE,  can have a powerful effect.


Therapeutic Parenting

Therapeutic Parenting is a highly nurturing parenting approach used to build and connect the parent and child.  At the core of this approach is PACE,  a therapeutic model that focuses on:-

Playfulness to connect and diffuse a situation,

Acceptance of the child whilst not accepting of aggression,

Curiosity to detect your child’s need, and 


What customers are saying

Testimonial - Hi Jo - Thought I'd let you know how S is doing, she is now in the last few weeks of year 6. Her confidence has grown and grown, she still has the odd dip but I think I have S back. In April she sang and danced in front of 300 people and has recently got one of the leading parts in the end of year production at school. Thank you for helping her to achieve!

BRILLIANT - This has been brilliant for my daughter! She has anxiety and Jo has worked with her doing play therapy. She has really enjoyed her sessions and I can see real improvement with her.  It's given her a safe and confidential place to discuss her feelings and emotions with no judgement. Thank you so much for all your hard work with my daughter. I'm sure we will be back for top up sessions if needed in the future 🥰
