ABOUT US

Hi, my name is Lauren Snailham. I am a Clinical Psychologist working in private practice in Durban, Kwazulu Natal, South Africa.  I work with children, adolescence and adults with a variety of psychological difficulties.

My work includes: assessment, play therapy, psychotherapy and psycho-education.  As I work with children, I am always on the look out for creative techniques and activities that I can use in play therapy in the hope that I can help children cope with their life situations.  I have written and illustrated a number of story books which can be found on this website.   I have had lots of fun creating these stories, and using them in therapy with the children I have treated and I am glad to be able to share them with others who work with children.

I was invited to contribute my play therapy techniques to two books titled “Creative Family and Therapy Techniques” and “Assessment and Treatment Activities for Children, Adolescents and Families. Volume 3: Practitioners Share their Most effective Techniques” complied and editored by best-selling author and speaker, Liana Lowenstein.
