You may be feeling...
When you come to play therapy at the Windfall Centre, you and your therapist can play together and talk together.
It is your therapist’s job to try and help you sort out any worries. Usually we will have two sessions to see if you like it.
After you have had some sessions with your therapist, they will have a meeting with your parents, or carer, or social worker, to see how things are. This will help us make sure things are going okay or if we need to change anything.
Just so you know...
- When you come to play therapy your therapist will keep what you both talk about CONFIDENTIAL.
- This does not mean it is a secret because you can tell anyone you like about what you do.
- But your therapist will keep things private unless you say it is okay to tell someone else.
If you tell your therapist about something that makes her think someone may be hurting you, or that you have been hurt before then she will explain to you that she has to tell someone about this to make sure that you and any other children are kept safe and not hurt.
It is adults’ responsibility to make sure that children are not hurt and to keep them safe.
It is also your therapist’s job to keep you safe. If you ever feel unsafe in the playroom you can tell your therapist and she will make sure you are kept safe.
If you feel unsafe or uncomfortable because of something the therapist has said or done and you don’t want to tell her, you can tell someone else like your…
Mother or Father
They will then make sure things change.
They might talk to your therapist and discuss with them what you said, talk to another person in the Windfall Centre or talk to someone outside the Windfall Centre like a social worker.
