Helping children with emotional & behaviour problems

Many children don’t want to, or cannot, talk about their problems. Play therapy is very effective for children aged 3 to 12. The child chooses from a range of activities in the play room. These include: drawing and painting, sand tray, clay, puppets, musical instruments, story-telling, role play. The Play Therapist focuses closely on the child, communicating using the media the child has chosen. Although of course, the child can talk about their problems, when they are ready, on average research shows only 8% of the session is spent in talking.

Between 73% and 84% receiving play therapy to Play Therapy UK’s standards show a positive change – the more severe the problems the higher the change. (Based on over 10,000 cases).

Because play therapy works through unconscious processes, it is important that practitioners are fully qualified and meet the highest standards of practice. Play Therapy is now regulated through the Professional Standards Authority’s Accredited Register programme. The PTUK Register of Play and Creative Arts Therapists warrants the quality and effectiveness of its Registrants. Using unregistered therapists can be dangerous.

Play therapy improves a child’s ability to learn and reduces the chance of adult mental health problems.

The polyester hollow-fibre filling of the Anti Allergy Duvets and Pillows contain material in which house dust mites cannot live, thus playing a major role in helping to relieve allergies caused by them. Alternatively, the Anti Allergy Duvet, Pillow and Mattress Protectors all provide an effective barrier between your child and the dust mites and their allergens.

Pure Living Collection also offers some pillows with slightly less filling and therefore perfect for smaller shoulders, whilst waterproof mattress protectors offer their mattresses protection against those all too common accidents and spills.

MXT Swimming School

Established since 1990, MXT Swim is a premier swimming school teaching babies from 6 months, children up to 14 years and adults. Our unique programme is designed to produce confident and capable swimmers in a safe and fun environment.

MXT provide a fast track programme with one-to-one teaching as well as group sessions.

Each child is treated as an individual and we progress them at their own pace according to their ability.

Water confidence is nurtured by ensuring that structured lessons are fun and playful while encouraging two-way communication between teacher and child. Swimmers will achieve the highest standard of strokes to equip themselves with the skills required to enjoy all water-based activities.

Intensive swimming courses are also available during all school breaks.
