Referring a Child for Creative-Me sessions

Play therapist Sarah, after completing a Textile Degree,  embarked on a Foundation in  Art Therapy, later training in Children’s Yoga and then completed a Certificate in Counselling Skills.  She has worked in Primary and Secondary schools and volunteered with Refugee Families.   She holds a PG Dip (Distinction) in Play & Creative Arts Therapy and embarked on LandPlay (Outdoor Play Therapy) training in 2018. She became a Parent and Child Attachment Play Practitioner (for 3-15 year olds) later in the same year. Since then she has trained in First Aid (Paediatric) and is a Mental Health First Aider with up- to-date Safeguarding training (2020). 

During 2021 she started training as Counsellor of Children and Young People to enable her to work therapeutically with older children and teenagers.  She combines and utilises all of the above and other skills when working with children and young people and sees it as beneficial to involve families and school staff in order for a greater understanding of the child’s and young persons needs.

Children between the ages of 3 and 12 are suitable for play therapy, but it can also be relevant for older children

  • For parents and carers: If you feel your child would benefit from Play Therapy or Creative Counselling, please get in touch to find out about the next steps.

  • For schools: If you recognise that there is a child in your classroom who would benefit from Play Therapy or Creative Counselling,  please speak to the SENCO and ask them to get in touch.  Sarah will be happy to carry out an assessment, agree the objectives of the therapy and discuss the number of sessions and fees.

Sarah works both privately and within schools using Indoor and Outdoor Play & Creative Arts Therapy. Sessions are held in mid Cornwall (including Truro and St Austell) Monday to Friday. Weekends and after school sessions are held on request.
