    About Here For You

    Hear For You specialises in working with Children aged 3-16 years who have trouble eating or sleeping; have low self esteem; have emotional or behavioural difficulties; have experienced loss, family breakdown, or bereavement; have witnessed violence, parental conflict, or substance misuse; have experienced neglect, abuse or trauma; are ill, disabled or cope with carers or siblings with disabilities.

    Play Therapy helps children explore troubling, painful feelings. All children can communicate through play and activities using toys; musical instruments; art materials; and sand. Within the session the child can revisit traumatic or difficult life experiences in order to make sense of the past and cope better with the future.

    It can be difficult for children to cope with painful feelings and experiences. This may be expressed in a variety of ways, such as behavioural problems or withdrawal. Play Therapy can provide a child with time to express themselves in a safe and contained way. It can promote resilience and steady emotions to enable a child to cope with the future.


    Renate and Jacqui are both qualified with Post Graduate Diplomas in Non Directive Play Therapy from the University of York and have trained in Filial Therapy. Both hold an Advanced Award in Social Work.
