Freedom Play & Creative Arts Therapy - Sometimes talking is just not enough!

 My name is Cara and I am a Child and Adolescent Therapist, specialising in Play & Creative Arts Therapy

 I have a particular interest in trauma and sensori-motor responses (body memories) and as part of my Masters Degree  in Play Therapy I did an exploratory study into "The non-verbal therapeutic process involved in the use of sandplay with Looked After Children, who have undergone a traumatic experience before the age of four". Click here to read it now.
I have experience in working with a wide variety of children's needs which includes but is not exhaustive of the following:

  • Chaotic eating & Eating Disorders             
  • Self Harm
  • Anger management     
  • Friendship issues
  • Trauma & Abuse
  • Social interaction difficulties & Autistic Spectrum Disorder
  • Fears & Phobias                 
  • Self esteem & confidence issues
I have an enhanced DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check and have a Professional membership with:
  • BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) - MBACP Registered.
I work within the ethical framework for BACP
