Our Play Therapy training is always well received, and recent participant feedback included the following comments:

“Informative, interactive, imaginative and powerful!”
“I found the presentation and practical a good balance. Content was directly applicable and accessible. Very relaxed, pleasant atmosphere.”
“Encouraged me to think about ways to include play / sensory and be comfortable with ‘being with’ clients.”
“I would definitely recommend to a friend.  It brings out the child play in you, it’s a great feeling!”
