About this Therapy Placement Opportunity
We have an excellent trainee Play & Creative Arts Therapist working with us called Helen Morse. Helen is a qualified child counsellor who is undertaking a Postgraduate Certificate in Therapeutic Play Skills to further develop her skills in working therapeutically with children.
As part of her Certificate training, Helen is looking for a 100 hour work placement working on Wednesdays in a primary school in Oxfordshire, ideally within 20 miles of Oxford, supporting up to 4 children with Play & Creative Arts Therapy.
A series of Play and Creative Arts Therapy sessions with one child usually costs between £60 and £85 per session. The therapy cost for Helen would be £17 per session. This is a rare opportunity to access this specialist service at minimal cost.
After working as an Early Years Practitioner and in primary education, Helen trained as a counsellor and has for the last 6 years counselled young people in schools and community organisations. Helen also trained as a child counsellor with Place2Be, spending 3 years as part of a Place2Be primary school project, counselling children using play and creative arts. Helen is passionate about the power of play to help children process difficult feelings and experiences, enabling them to enjoy their lives and relationships, access their learning and fulfil their potential.
Helen is a student with a significant amount of experience and she is supported by the Clear Sky team with regular supervision sessions. If you wish to go ahead with hosting Helen during her placement she could begin work with children in January 2021.
