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.
