We offer support through interactive play for any family who is worried about their child’s emotional wellbeing or behaviour. We also offer support to schools and community organisations who want to use Theraplay to support children and families. We are based in the West Midlands.
We are here to help you build the best possible relationship with your child and help your child believe in themselves.
There are many reasons why you might want help:
Maybe you and your children have experienced a significant life change, because of illness, divorce or bereavement.
Maybe you want some help to support your child if they have additional needs, such as autism or ADHD.
Maybe you are trying to establish a new relationship with a child as an adoptive parent, special guardian, foster carer or step parent.
Charlotte is an experienced social worker and will work with you and your child to focus on their developmental needs, understanding how this effects them and their behaviour.
Julie is an experienced teacher and senior leader who will work with schools and community organisations to help ensure children’s social and emotional development is supported.
We are attachment focused so, whatever the reason you need support, we will help you foster your relationship with your child and importantly enjoy time together.
We use Theraplay® and DDP techniques to help children and their parents or caregivers to communicate and connect in a playful and fun way.
Theraplay is ideal for any child experiencing separation anxiety, dealing with divorce or loss in the family, or settling into a new family arrangement. It can also be really helpful to children with autism or ADHD where social relationships and communication are challenging.
DDP helps fostering and adoptive families explore deepening their connection.
Schools and other organisations can access training courses and packages of support based on childhood brain development and attachment theories.
There will be a focus on practical strategies to use in the classroom to help regulate children.
Other training around fostering, adoption and SGOs is also available.
