"Everyone gets a brush of the blues. There are times in almost everyone's life when they feel the need to reach out and get some extra support. For many people this is professional counselling. I offer counselling support for adults and I also specialise in playful therapeutic interventions for children and their caregivers. Children communicate through play and a playful moment can happen anytime, anywhere. I believe actions can speak louder than words in the journey to a happier child and a happier family.
Even if that child is the one inside you."

Blue Brush Therapy is a family focused service. In our experience children find it challenging to attend a therapeutic session after school when they are tired as they need time to play or relax. To ensure our clients have as positive an experience as possible our standard operating hours are during school term times and hours.
