Healing Play

After the success of this day course in 2016 and 2017, we are delighted to be running ‘Healing Play’ again in 2018.

The mental health of children and young people in our society is of growing concern.

What is it to offer support and early intervention for children who are expressing emotion and behaviour which cause concern to their parents, carers and teachers?

Healing Play is a one day interactive workshop event (10.00 am-4.00 pm) introducing the principles and practice of Play Therapy by exploring some of the resources used in non-directive play therapy. These will include the use of sand and small world characters, paint, creative materials, story and metaphor. The emphasis of the day will be on practical skills.

There are 20 spaces available to book on this course.

The day will be led by Sheffield based Jenny Lambourne, Director of Time and Space for Children (www.timeandspaceforchildren.co.uk). Jenny is a parent and grandparent with a lifelong commitment to working with children in church, school and community contexts. 10 years as the Children’s Advisor and trainer on the Aurora Children’s Ministry course within the Diocese of Sheffield, she is currently a Godly Play storyteller and Certified Play Therapist working with children with various emotional and behavioural issues. Jenny completed her MA researching into children’s spirituality within play therapy.


Saturday 22nd September 2018. The day will be based at Cliff College between 10.00 am-4.00 pm, with registration and coffee from 9.30 am.


The cost of £60.00, includes morning and afternoon refreshments, lunch, and all teaching materials. A non-returnable deposit of £15.00 secures your place. Balance to be paid on the day.
