Sally is a registered Social Worker and Play Therapist. She qualified as a Social Worker in the UK in 2005 (Anglia Polytechnic University) and has been a practising Social Worker for over 16 years, predominately in the UK. Prior to moving to Australia she worked as a therapeutic social worker (school counselor) within primary schools, this lead to her interest in Play Therapy. Within this role Sally identified the benefits play/non directive therapeutic intervention had with children struggling with their emotions and behaviors. Sally believes children have an innate potential for growth, development and healing and as research tells us child-centered play therapy can effectively support the change process. Play Therapy is the perfect way for children to express their world and try out new ways of being, to tell their story and to feel supported.
Since emigrating in 2014 Sallycompleted advanced clinical training in Child Centered Play Therapy with Play Therapy Australia and has worked within both a Not for Profit organisation and a private practice. She is motivated by this evidence based, developmentally appropriate, systemic and humanistic approach to therapeutic work with children and families.
Sally is a Provisional Clinical member with the Australian Play Therapy Association (APTA), and an Accredited Mental Health Social Worker with the Australian Association of Social Work (AASW). She is able to accept Medicare referrals from GP's or direct referrals from parents/carers.
