Play therapy is a child centred, theoretically informed specialised approach to children's therapy. Children can often experience difficulties adjusting to life circumstances however, children do not possess the cognitive ability to put into words what they are thinking or how they are feeling, often showing us that things are muddled for them through their behaviours. Play therapy enables children to express, regulate, communicate, practice and master new skills and figure out muddled feelings and thoughts in a safe way. Mindra our play therapist will provide your child with a safe, consistent, predictable and warm environment where they can feel free to explore, express and figure out and resolve their muddled feelings.

Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) is an intervention protocol developed specifically for dealing with traumatic events. The main objective of CISM is to provide crisis intervention during or after a critical incident in order to minimise stress and normalise reactions to the traumatic event.
CISM is both a psychological and educational group process designed to:
The purpose of psychological debriefing is to review the impressions and reactions of individuals following a traumatic event. Individuals will be invited to share their feelings and the impact of the traumatic event on them. This will be followed by a psychoeducational session in which their stress reactions will be normalised. They are given practical advice in relation to the reaction they are likely to experience and how best to care for themselves.
Those involved may have individual needs in coping with the present traumatic event or where other past experiences have been evoked. Face-to-face counselling sessions will be offered to individuals in need of more further support.
Employers have a Duty of Care under the Health & Safety Act 1989 to provide appropriate support to those who have experienced a critical incident.
