Certified Play Therapist
Mrs Sharon Gough is a PTUK Registered Certified Play Therapist who specialises in working with children aged 3 to 12, predominately, using non-directive play therapy. She believes that we all have the capacity for self-healing, if given the time, support and opportunity to do so. Using the child’s main form of communication, play, Sharon helps children to understand their own journey in life so far, accept themselves for who they are, and help them uncover their own resilience to cope with what is to come. Sharon draws upon creative methods such as art, drama, music, sand and clay to help children express themselves. With over 20 years’ experience working with children, having previously worked as a teacher, Sharon has an ability to engage with children at their own level whilst building the therapeutic relationship.
