Hannah Cotton

PTUK Certified Play Therapist and Trainee Clinical Supervisor.

I qualified as a Play Therapist in 2013.   Since then I have worked therapeutically in Primary and Secondary Schools across Essex and Suffolk with children and young people who experience social, emotional and behavioural problems.   Before that I worked in Primary Schools as a Behaviour Support Assistant and a Nurture Group Leader.

I am also a qualified Parent and Child Attachment Play Practitioner (PCAP) and a Baby Bonding Practitioner.   As such, I have a particular interest in and experience of Attachment focused work.   I very much believe in enriching Attachment relationships in families through gentle, nurturing and playful approaches.

Play Therapy is a creative and subtle approach to child counselling.   Through my non directive and nurturing approach I work with children and young people who

  • Have experienced a bereavement or separation
  • Suffer from anxiety or low self esteem
  • Have difficulties communicating
  • Find going to school difficult
  • Have nightmares or difficulty sleeping
  • Experience social, emotional or behavioural problems
  • Have experienced trauma or abuse
