As a Play Therapist, the successful candidate will provide non-directive Play Therapy and, where appropriate, direct work support for children and young people who have experienced a range of psychological difficulties and complex life experiences including attachment, abuse and trauma related difficulties. Your support will enable these children/young people to make sense of their experiences, express their feelings and move towards feeling more secure. It is important to IntraQuest that a holistic approach is taken so that all adults concerned in the care of children and young people receiving therapy have greater understanding around the needs of the individual and a greater ability to meet those needs. As such, you will also support parents, carers and professionals whilst the children and young people are receiving therapy.

The successful candidate will be primarily based in schools and working with primary aged children, however there may be times when they will be required to work with older children in other settings.

The successful candidate must be a qualified Play Therapist and be registered, or able to register, with BAPT and/or PTUK and hold experience of providing a Play Therapy service to a wide range of children and young people. An understanding of the effects of poor attachments and other traumatic life experiences is essential. A car with driving license is also essential.
