TPC Therapy is directed by Shahana Knight who is a childhood trauma specialist and has a team of play therapists who support vulnerable children all over the UK.
We believe every child that has struggled with trauma or adverse childhood experiences should have access to therapy to help them move forward. Addressing issues around mental health and emotional wellbeing is essential for healthy development and should be a priority in childhood
Play therapy is designed to help children explore their feelings and experiences safety through play. Play offers a way for children to express themselves, organise feelings and understand them too. This is a child’s most natural form of self-expression and is a safe way of exploring difficult things. Often children do not have the language to explain what has happened, nor the self-awareness to understand how this has affected their behaviour and self-concept. Our therapists are specifically trained to help children to understand how their feelings and behaviours are linked and can help children heal from negative experiences through use of metaphor and imagination in the playroom.

The TPC Therapy Team
What happens when you ask little people BIG questions
We sat down with a five and six-year-old to hear their thoughts about childhood trauma and mental health in schools. As adults, it is sometimes easy to forget the insightfulness children can have and we had a great time asking these two little ones some big questions.
At TPC Therapy, one of our primary goals is helping children explore their feelings and emotions and finding their voice. We work closely with children, helping to support them through the tough stuff life might throw their way. Helping them to become more self-aware, emotionally intelligent and to develop empathy for others.
The Happiness Project
At TPC Therapy we have developed 10 essential Happiness Project PHSE lessons, which complement the requirements set out by the DFE in the Relationships, Sex and Health education statutory guidance for schools.
Sessions are delivered by our Play Therapists who use therapeutic language and strategies to support the children through some potentially emotive topics so that they feel safe and valued.
