My Therapeutic Services
I am a child-centred practitioner who follows Axline's rules of non-directive play therapy to allow the child or teen to express themselves through play in a safe nurturing, accepting, unjudgmental environment.
I am a client-centred practitioner who allows the client to lead their own process in a safe, accepting, nurturing, unjudgmental space, using pertinent interventions based on play therapy, expressive arts, EMDR, CBT or DBT informed practices. My experience has been with adult trauma survivors and I enjoy seeing the hope being brought back into their lives after such suffering.
The power of play is crucial to reparation in families who have been suffering. This positive interaction through expressive arts or play, allows for bonding and the bolstering of secure attachment. Families begin to understand each other and meet each other's needs through positive empathic loving interactions. Chantal can facilitate sessions which allow for this understanding, connection and repair after rupture has caused disconnect in the family unit.
