Clare Curtis - Accredited Play Therapist
Life can be challenging, it changes many times as families grow and develop. Children may find it very difficult to explain or understand how they are feeling or how these changes are affecting them. Clare is an accredited play therapist and aims to help children who are experiencing difficulties in managing their emotions and the effects of their behaviour so that they can become whole, complete, and peaceful people.
Clare uses creative arts and play techniques to address the issues that bring each child to play therapy while recognising and respecting the need of each child to find their own path. She also supports parents as they work to strengthen their relationship with their child/children.
Clare has over 30 years of experience supporting children and adults on their chosen paths. She holds an honours degree in Psychology from UCD and Post Graduate Diploma in Play Therapy from NUI Galway. Clare is a trained practitioner in therapy techniques, Parent-Child Attachment Play and Baby Bonding. She has additional qualifications in Training, Sports Psychology and Children’s Yoga. She is currently training as a Clinical Supervisor. Clare is an accredited member of Play Therapy Irl. and IPTCA, is fully Garda vetted and carries professional indemnity insurance.
