More Information
I have been using Play Therapy Techniques for over 20 years as my primary method of working with children. I have worked often with children and adolescents who have experienced overwhelming events in their lives. 12 years ago I began weaving in EMDR interventions into the Play Therapy environment-which works quite effectively. More importantly I find it to be a seamless and synergistic process that brings out the best of both toolboxes for healing. It is a force multiplier for strengthening the good stuff and 'taking out' the bad stuff. Permanently. Most importantly, Person Centered Play Therapy creates an environment where the child feels safe in doing this work. This allows the healing to happen and the child to tap into their personal strengths that provide the fuel for the healing to take place. Typically children leave their work with me not just with the 'broken stuff/hurtfull stuff 'fixed'. But with their strengths and core self, the core of who they are, going strong, that they can carry forward into their lives. Play Therapy has been transformational for my Clients. But as well for me. As a Therapist and human being it has transformed me.
