Our Play Therapist 


Hi, my name is Pippa and I am the Qualified Play Therapist with Creative Ways. I am a registered Play Therapist and Social Worker and I have worked with children, young people and families since 2000.  My background includes working with families accessing support from ‘Team Around the Child’, ‘Child in Need’, Child Protection and ‘Looked After Children’.  I have supported young people who use drugs and alcohol problematically, supported children and families who are impacted by parental drug and alcohol use, and domestic abuse including managing a team of Children and Young People Creative Support Workers, and I have supported children and adolescents through Play Therapy, Creative Therapies and Solution Focus Therapy in a variety of settings. As a qualified Play Therapist I am able to draw on my experiences to offer a pure child-centred approach to allowing children and young people to explore and make some sense of their internal and external worlds in a safe space.  I find this work incredibly rewarding and never cease to be amazed how resourceful children and young people are.
