About this Therapy Placement Opportunity
We currently have an excellent trainee Play & Creative Arts Therapist working with us called Laura De Matteo. Laura has completed her Certificate in Play Therapy and has started her diploma training.
As part of her diploma, Laura is looking for a 100 hour work placement working on Mondays in a school 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 £50 and £80 per session. The therapy cost for Laura would be £17 per session. This is a rare opportunity to access this specialist service at minimal cost.
Laura is also an occupational therapist who has worked for CAMHS services in the NHS for the past 8 years. Laura’s current role within learning disability CAMHS is supporting children with a range of difficulties in the context of autism, sensory issues and behavioural difficulties. Laura is passionate about early intervention and helping children reach their potential.
Laura is a student with a huge amount of experience and she is supported by the Clear Sky team with regular supervision sessions. If you wish to go ahead with hosting Laura during her placement she could begin work with children after the Easter holidays.
If you would like to discuss this placement opportunity further please email Jess Haynes at [email protected]. Laura and Jess are also very happy to come and meet you at your school to answer any questions you may have.
