How can ThruPlay Therapy help you or your child



Hi, I am Chantal Piercy,

a Registered Counselling Therapist-Candidate (RCT-C23-059) with NSCCT and Therapeutic Play Practitioner. I am a person-centred practitioner who uses core conditions of acceptance, unjudgmental empathy, and unconditional positive regard within the therapeutic relationship. I can build rapport quickly with children and adults, allowing for therapeutic goals to be met and positive change to occur. I can provide a safe space for individuals to express themselves fully and work through past trauma, in a supportive, caring environment.

I work through the ethics of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA) CCPA-2020-Code-of-Ethics-E-Book-EN.pdf (
