It takes commitment to change lives

Theraplay

Foundry College is able to offer Theraplay sessions with our qualified practitioners Sandra Ostridge and Amy Ince.

What is Theraplay?

Family work/Theraplay ® consisting of a Behaviour Specialist trained to deliver family sessions using Level 1 & 2 Theraplay Techniques.

Theraplay is a structured play therapy for children and their parents. Its goal is to enhance attachment, self-esteem, trust in others and joyful engagement. The sessions are fun, physical, personal and interactive and replicate the natural, healthy interaction between parents and young children.

Children can be referred for a wide variety of problems including withdrawn or depressed behaviour, overactive – aggressive behaviour, temper tantrums, phobias, and difficulty socialising and making friends. Children are also referred for various behaviour and interpersonal problems resulting from learning disabilities, developmental delays, and pervasive developmental disorders or Autism Spectrum Conditions. Because of its focus on attachment and relationship development this intervention is used successfully with foster and adoptive families as well as with those children experiencing attachment difficulties.

If you would like to further information on Theraplay and how it can be accessed, please contact sandra.ostridge@foundry.wokingham.sch.uk or amy.ince@foundry.wokingham.sch.uk
