Promoting Neurodiversity Affirming        Play Therapy

I am passionate about social and emotional development. My goal is to help children be the best that they can be through evidence-based practices that enhance children's emotional intelligence and their relationships.  I am an advocate for neurodiversity acceptance, everybody’s brains work in different ways. Children need to understand about who they are, how their emotions affect them and how the world works around them to be able to live a successful life. 

Through my play therapy sessions, I teach and work with each child to build on their Emotional Intelligence. They learn that emotions can impact their behaviour and affect others in a positive or negative way. Children then study their own emotional internal signs (interception), how to manage big angry emotions and the language they can use to communicate that they need help. 

My early intervention practices take a neurorelational approach focusing on relationship, cooperation, safety and co-regulation. Play is the language I use during intervention as it helps children to integrate the differentiated parts of the brain as a cohesive whole. Playful interactions support the building of the middle prefrontal cortex, which helps regulate the body, emotions, and foster sound decision making.

My aim here is to work collaboratively with you, your child and any other professionals involved in your child's life to develop a consistent plan into how we can improve the lives of your child and bring more happiness and wellbeing into your family.

I also provide parents and caregivers with strategies to support their children that are consistent with what is working at our play therapy sessions.  I understand how to navigate the NDIS system and can help you to prepare for your plan/review meeting if needed.

I am located in Canberra and offer sessions at home and in schools.

“Neurodiversity is a biological fact. It’s not a perspective, an approach, a belief, a political position, or a paradigm… the diversity of human brains and minds – the infinite variation in neurocognitive functioning within our species.”
