Social Worker

I am is a social worker in private practice that work with toddlers from the age of 3 years old and older and use a play therapy process to create a non-threatening, safe and comfortable environment to help children express their feelings and thoughts and deal with difficult painful emotional issues. Play is a child’s language and toys are their words. Through the use of different types of play and creative therapeutic methods and the development of a safe therapeutic relationship, children are helped to deal with painful emotional issues. During the play therapy process children’s sense of self enhance, they are assisted to integrate thoughts, emotions and behaviour, change negative behaviours, enhance adaptive functioning and achieve optimal growth and development.

Psychologist

I work with adults and children. I believe that our early years shape our experiences. These experiences influence what we expect from and, how we respond to those close to us.
