OUR VISION STATEMENT
We aim to provide an approachable and supportive point of contact for parents, carers and professionals from health care, social care and educational settings. Our website will offer: clarity around what Play Therapy is; the benefits of Play Therapy; when Play Therapy might not be appropriate for a child and the training and qualifications necessary to become a professionally recognised Play Therapist. In addition, our website will provide information and contact details for each of the associates: each associate is committed to responding to individual questions, concerns or general referral enquiries, on a no obligation basis - for free.
EDUCATION - COMMUNICATION - CONNECTION
