  • The Play Specialist Service (TPSS) is run by myself, Vicki Ivie, and was formed in January 2017. 

  •  I have been a qualified and registered Community Health Play Specialist since 2008 and a Family Systemic Practitioner since 2015.

  • I begin my sessions by  establishing a trusting relationship with the child, young person (YP) and family.   

  • The outcome is usually a positive one. Anxiety levels are reduced, coping strategies put in place, new skills learnt  which allow those to feel  empowered  and able to move forward.  

  • I  offer pre and post bereavement work,  and support for families struggling with change, and uncertainty. ​

  • I work collaboratively with other professionals from all agencies including those in the health, educational, social sector and charities.  

  • ​My sessions are face to face and can be held from my own therapy room in Sutton, Greater London,  from a therapy room in London (not far from Great Porltand Street), schools, places of worship and family home (this does incur an extra charge for travel). I can and do offer online sessions using Skype, Zoom or Teams.  

  • Training sessions / workshops are carried out in the firms workplace. 

  • I run parent workshops, professional training programs and supervision sessions.
