Dear Families,

Please find a link below to a new therapeutic blog being run by two experienced play therapists.   Parents, teachers and professionals are encouraged to send Yasmeen and Tash emails with their questions or concerns and they will use their expertise to suggest strategies to help.

The aim is simply a space to explore issues/dilemmas that we may be experiencing with our young ones.

Many thanks,

Mrs Mullaney

 

Hello families,

Many of the families that I support have communicated to me that their children’s sleep behaviour has changed during Lockdown.  This is understandable however research shows that poor sleep negatively impacts behaviour and emotional regulation.  Therefore I wanted to direct families to the Great Ormond Street website where there are lots of top tips for establishing good sleep hygiene.

I hope this is helpful.

Take lots of care,

Mrs Mullaney

Hello families,

As children are returning to school, I would like to  direct families to look at some really useful resources on the NSPCC website. The have put together advice for parents and ways of preparing children for their return to school.

If you have additional concerns about your child’s return to school, please do let me know so that we can carefully plan their return together.

Kindest regards,

Mrs Mullaney
