Nicki’s experience started when she worked in a Play School and as a Teaching Assistant in a primary school setting. Whilst working, engaging and observing children in their play and other interventions she became interested in children’s emotional wellbeing, their attachment styles and neuroscience, causing them to disengage emotionally or socially at times. This presented as behavioural changes and emotional disengagement. This is when she began training as a therapist in 2012.
Play and Creative Arts therapy allows the pupil to project their inner thoughts and feelings onto a medium of play and creativity, whilst providing them a safe space while processing their internal world at a deeper level. Projection is a way of safely disconnecting them from their unconscious process coupled with the therapeutic relationship, trust and in time bridging the gap to allow their process to become conscious.
