Play therapy can be very effective for small groups of children who struggle with social skills or with experiences that make them feel isolated (eg: bereavement, loss, low self-esteem). There is an increased sense of safety in the peer group and the experience can be powerful in facilitating positive shifts. Group therapy referrals are closely managed by the therapist. They are charged, per child, at the same rate as individual therapy.
Bespoke training and interactive training can be provided for your staff, on child attachment, behaviour and supporting children’s mental health.
With a BA Hons in Music and as Trinity College of Music Junior alumni, I have taught the flute and performed across Essex and Suffolk for 25 years. As a solo flautist and orchestral player, performances include with the Ipswich Orchestral Society, Trianon Music Group, Holbrook Music Society, Ipswich Gilbert and Sullivan Society and at numerous other musical theatre venues across East Anglia.
Flute tutor at Braintree Music School for eight years and Lecturer of music courses to adult learners at West Suffolk College, past flute students of mine have gone on to complete music degrees and study the flute at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, London. Please drop me a note, should you wish to enquire.
As a primary teacher of 20 years, I offer primary tuition – providing fun and interactive learning experiences for children needing support with learning.
With class teaching experiences from Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) up to and including Year 6, I listen to children as they teach me what they understand, and then support them in addressing misconceptions and clarifying areas of confusion.
With a well-humoured and reflective approach, children’s knowledge, understanding and confidence grow.
