Welcome to Jade Play Therapy
Jade Play Therapy is a therapeutic play service for children.
Play therapy is a Masters level postgraduate profession and a form of child therapy that provides a way for children to express their thoughts and feelings through the medium of play. For a child, the toys become their words, and Play Therapists help children explore their feelings and process their experiences through play.
Jade currently offers a mobile service to provide therapy to children at schools, other organisations, and occasionally in their homes.
Jade can work with children aged between three and eleven years of age, and occasionally adolescents. Play Therapy can help children suffering from a range of psychological difficulties and challenging life experiences, including (but not limited to):
|Anxiety||Low Self Esteem and Confidence|
|Autistic Spectrum Disorders||Domestic Violence|
|Learning Difficulties or illness||Trauma|
|Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder||Fostering and Adoption|
|Oppositional Defiant disorder||Abuse|
|Eating Disorders||Sleeping Difficulties|
|Communication difficulties||Exclusion from school|
Jade will accept Play Therapy referrals from Schools, Parents and Carers, Children’s Services, Educational Psychologists, Children’s Charities, Fostering and Adoption Services, GP’s, and other organisations
Play therapy can only take place once the person holding parental responsibility for the child has signed a Play Therapy Consent Form. Jade will provide this form to the family after a referral to Play Therapy has been made.
