Exploring and expanding Play Therapy

image

 

Although my main training is in Non-Directive Play Therapy, I like to branch out and explore. To mix and match as my young clients and their circumstances might require with techniques and tools that better serve their needs.

From this month onwards I will be working as a sessional Play Therapist within a private practice , working mostly with Looked after children in residential schools and with adopted children.

Cinco de Mayo

Feliz Cinco de mayo / Happy Cinco de Mayo to all who celebrate it!

Historically, The holiday of Cinco De Mayo, The 5th Of May, commemorates the victory of the Mexican militia over the French army at The Battle Of Puebla in 1862. 

Celebrating Cinco de Mayo has become increasingly popular along the U.S.-Mexico border and in parts of the U.S. that have a high population of people with a Mexican heritage. In these areas the holiday is a celebration of Mexican culture, of food, music, beverage and customs unique to Mexico.

The first day of the month of May is known as May Day. It is the time of year when warmer weather begins and flowers and trees start to blossom. It is said to be a time of love and romance. It is when people celebrate the coming of summer with lots of different customs that are expressions of joy and hope after a long  winter.

Here we are on Earth Day 2014!

Have you planned anything special? Hopefully the schools around your area have kept the children busy and the whole community aware of ways to protect our planet and conserve energy.  So even if you have been busy or away today, you probably contributed on some level during the past week, or better still, you believe that:’ everyday should be Earth day!
