Improving the well-being of children through creative arts and therapeutic play




Hello, I am Angela ,

I have recently qualified as a creative arts and play therapist, an exciting but natural career change given my background.

As a primary school teacher and mother to four young adults I have become increasingly drawn to working therapeutically with children  helping them build strategies and resilience  improving their mental well being in response to demanding events. I aim to work with parents and teachers too to strengthen relationships between children and their adults.

Who can it help?

Play therapy can help children who are experiencing a range of social or emotional difficulties such as:

Low self-confidence

Friendship difficulties, bullying or being bullied

Struggling to concentrate or learn

Anxiety, stress or phobias

Parental and family separation

Overwhelming emotional reponses

Communication and behavioural delays or difficulties

Bereavement, trauma & abuse

Looked-after and fostered children

Young carers
