My name is Sarah Day.
I have worked with individual children and groups experiencing attachment difficulties, trauma,anxiety and social and emotional behaviour difficulties.
As an experienced primary teacher, and mum to three children, I have supported children with autism, ADHD and additional learning needs. I use an integrative therapeutic model. This means it incorporates a variety of child development theories, psychoeducation and neuroscience. These elements provide the theoretical framework for the work I do with the children and their parents/carers.
I am committed to enabling the child or young person to explore and express their difficult feelings and to help them achieve a more positive view of themselves. I have a dedicated therapeutic playroom in Bishop's Stortford.
I trained with Play Therapy UK and I am a Certified Play and Creative Arts Therapist and SandStory Therapist. I am a Registered member of BACP working to their ethical standards and clinical governance. I hold a current DBS check and am fully insured. My commitment to continuous professional development ensures my skills and knowledge are kept current.
All my clinical work is fully supervised by a qualified and experienced Clinical Supervisor on a regular basis.
