  • Music For Communication: Singing, playing instruments, and engaging with music offer alternative ways to express emotions, reducing stress and enhancing well-being.

“This has been brilliant for my daughter! She has anxiety, and Jo has worked with her through play therapy. She has really enjoyed her sessions, and I can see real improvement. It's given her a safe and confidential place to discuss her feelings and emotions without judgment. 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 🥰.”
