The Rainbow Tree Wales

Project Aim

 

To provide mental health support for children aged 3 - 11 years and the adults who live or work with them. 

 

What does the project entail

 

The Rainbow Tree Wales is able to provide 1:1 Play Therapy and Filial Therapy to children in South Wales, as well as training for staff in schools and social care settings.

 

Play Therapists are trained to enable children to play through their worries and help to make sense of their world, sometimes using focused activities within the play therapy session.

 

As an experienced education professional I am also able to combine play therapy with support for schools, parents, carers and other professionals working with the child and family to ensure maximum benefits are achieved. 

 

What is required from the school?

A room that can be set up as a play room, which is available at the same time each week. 

How do the pupils directly benefit?

 

Children who recieve play therapy are generally more able to engage in the classroom and there is a reduction in behaviour difficulties. 

 

Training for staff can enable greater understanding of some of the emotional difficulties which children can experience and learn skills which can support children to manage better within the classroom.
