Freedom Creative Arts Therapy

Sometimes talking is just not enough.

My name is Cara and I am a Child and Adolescent Therapist, specialising in Play & Creative Arts Therapy

If your child is struggling at home and/or school then why not get in touch with me. I have over 25 years experience working with children and young people and am qualified in Creative Arts Therapy to Masters Degree level. I have a particular interest in trauma & attachment issues

I have experience in working with a wide variety of children's needs which includes but is not exhaustive of the following:

  • Chaotic eating & Eating Disorders
  • Self Harm
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Anger management
  • Friendship issues
  • Trauma & Abuse
  • Social interaction difficulties
  • Autistic Spectrum Disorder
  • Fears & Phobias
  • Self esteem & confidence issues

I have a Private Practice in a village near to Hinckley, Leicestershire and I welcome referrals from individual clients, schools, Gp's, parents, Social Workers, Adoption support Fund & Looked After Children Teams, including virtual schools.

As part of my Masters Degree I did an exploratory study into "The non-verbal therapeutic process involved in the use of sandplay with Looked After Children, who have undergone a traumatic experience before the age of four". 

I have an enhanced DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check and have a Professional membership with BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) - MBACP Registered.
