I have worked for over 30 years as a teacher and counsellor/counsellor trainer. In recent times however I have found myself gravitating towards working with children as a therapist. With the outbreak of covid-19, I found myself playing with more and more children as the pandemic advanced. Working as a play -therapist is a humbling experience ,It requires patience and flexibility. As I work with the children, who talk in their language of play, I give the children a safe space, autonomy and time to reflect and express themselves using toys as their words. My greatest joy comes when they express themselves and are heard and understood.
