For Professionals

Working with Professionals

At Helen Barrett Children’s Counselling and Play Therapy, we offer assessment and therapeutic intervention in the form of individual or sibling play therapy, parent child relationship therapy training (Filial Therapy) and parent support through psycho education and parent skill development. During therapy, we work closely with the child’s family and any key services involved in the child’s life to ensure continuity and consistency of care and support. Report writing and attendance to meetings are also offered.

We receive referrals from a broad range of sources including child care educators, kindergardens, primary schools, family services, family mediation, child protection, maternal and child health, paediatricians, general practitioners, speech pathologists, occupational therapists.

We offer professional development seminars and parent education presentations on the powerful healing benefits of child centered play therapy and  insights into child development and strategies for managing difficult behaviours in children at home and in the classroom.

For further information or to refer a child to our service, please fill in the contact form on the home page or contact Helen.
