Training, qualifications & experience

Therapy in Praxis is dedicated to helping children improve self-awareness, self-confidence and self-esteem through the medium of play that involves a rich and purposefully directed range of sensory experiences. Our strategy at Therapy in Praxis is to combine individualised treatment sessions, home programming and therapeutic groups to build children’s skills and help them better adapt to life’s day-to-day challenges. We provide a safe and friendly environment for learning and practicing new skills. And we stay on top of emerging evidence, incorporating the latest successful therapies into our practice.

Our approach includes not only the therapy-related activities themselves, but also integration of new and improved skills into everyday activities. We teach parents and caregivers to support the young person and provide them with a clear understanding of its benefits, as well as how it fits into the total picture of the child’s therapy.

Therapy in Praxis recognises just how important it is for a young person to experience success and for the well-being of the family and support system to be able to see measurable changes in every area of the young person’s life. We have found this comprehensive approach leads to lasting results, not only in a therapeutic setting but also in the young person’s school, home and community.
