We are a trauma informed and trauma reactive practice. We understand the neuroscience and evidence behind adverse childhood events and their long term impact on children and families. We use a Theraplay and Circle of Security informed approach which are evidence based interventions to foster secure attachment between parent and child. All our therapist's have an understanding of these approaches, which is vital for children who have experienced trauma to heal.

Behaviour therapy

Playsense provides assessment and intervention for behaviour, emotional and social skills. We have worked for many years in the behaviour field and combine the strengths of many approaches with a long history of practical experience. 

We understand that children need more than simple behaviour approaches, so we work closely with families to understand the strengths and barriers they face. We understand that ​all behaviour is communication and teaching children appropriate ways of expressing emotion, regulating arousal, and calming themselves has a huge impact on their lives as well as their family's.

We look at relationships, connection, self esteem and environment to ensure that our therapy has a long lasting impact rather than being a short term solution. We help parents to validate all their children emotions whilst setting boundaries in a kind and respectful way. As well as managing behaviour we focus on helping families to experience joyful play with their children.
