Shine Through Play

Welcome to Shine Through Play

Play Therapy helps to improve the emotional well being of a child, helping to reduce their emotional and psychological problems.

Find that Safe Place to Explore Issues

I will give you a safe and protected space to explore any issues to find inner peace in a non-judgemental therapeutic relationship. Many children and even adults don’t want to talk or cannot talk about their feelings and what might be going on for them, this is why Play Therapy is effective for both adults and children.

Play therapy

Children displaying any symptoms of attachment issues, past trauma, controlling behaviour or ADHD behaviours can be assisted with the use of play therapy.


With reflection and acceptance, it can provide helpful skills to learn how to break the cycle of OCD patterns and self-harm. Move through past traumas through using different mediums.

Emotional Expression

Experiencing low self-esteem, a noticeable change in behaviour will often lead to concern for a person’s and child’s welfare.

Play Enactment

A divorce, separation or bereavement within a family can often affect not only a child’s emotions but it can also have an emotional impact on adults thoughts and feelings.

Regaining Control

Creative therapy can also benefit people suffering from anxiety, eating disorders or addictions. Giving them tools and techniques to gain resilience and be able to cope in difficult situations.


By processing inner turmoil leading to unwanted behaviours a child’s, adolescent or adult’s self-esteem can improve and they can gain more confidence and inner peace.

Play Therapy can have a huge impact on one's self-esteem and sense of well being. Their attitude towards learning and ability to work effectively as part of the class and school community has improved. Play Therapy is an incredible way for children to work through any issues or problems they are having at home or anxieties about school, in a safe nurturing environment. all children that struggle in areas should have the opportunity as it can have a positive impact on their whole outlook an success in life.
Year 6 Teacher

When my year 6 daughter experienced bullying she lost her self esteem, her confidence and was anxious.   We wanted to get her help before she went to secondary school and to get her back to her usual happy self.  We were recommended play therapy and Christine’s service.  Our daughter got so much out of the sessions and Christine explained everything wonderfully.  She made our daughter and us feel comfortable and was so engaging.  From session 1 we could see that the therapy was going to make a big difference and we finally got our happy confident daughter back.  She has now started secondary and is doing very well and her change of mindset which has come from the play therapy and Christine’s wonderful support has enabled this.  We highly recommend Christine and play therapy.  Thanks Christine.
