Welcome to my website!
My journey to becoming a Play Therapist started as a teenager when I read an article about Play Therapy as a new way of working with children. At the time there was no training available in Ireland. Fast forward a few years and I found myself qualified as a Social Worker and working in a therapeutic setting with children and families. In this work I noticed the children working on quite a deep level with the toys in the playroom and naturally I had a desire to learn more about and understand what they were communicating and support them with this.
Play Therapy has allowed me to understand just that and communicate with children on their level. It is very special to share a journey with a child from feeling overwhelmed by something to finding their own strengths and resources to resolve the situation. It has been a privilege for me to share this experience with many children in a child and family setting and more recently in my own private Play Therapy practice in Swords and Malahide.
