A Festive Full Cup Christmas message from Rachel!

Warm greetings friends!

Just a quick note from me to wish you all a very merry Christmas. 

This year has been a busy and exciting year for me. I've been working from a number of schools as a practitioner of Therapeutic Play. In particular, I enjoyed transforming an Art classroom into an inviting Play Room space over at Jockey Club Sarah Roe School and further fine tuning my non-verbal play skills by working with non-English speaking children at a local government primary school. 

One of the most challenging and exciting events this year was the setting up of Full Cup Play Therapy website and service in October.   Previously I'd been working with schools and the children they referred to me. With Full Cup I've expanded the people I can serve allowing parents to access Play Therapy directly. This is especially useful for those who aren't fortunate enough to have an in-school Play Therapy service. Something I hope to work on further in 2015 ;)

It's a real privilege to be able to touch the lives of children, their families and community through Play Therapy. Seeing the children's courage and growth is so inspiring and rewarding.  This season one boy in particular gave me a great and timely reminder. The greatest problem solving comes from harnessing our inner creativity....presenting my homemade, space efficient, cost effective Hong Kong Christmas tree!

I feel so blessed to work with such valuable colleagues and proactive parents. I hope I can further serve you through my blog in 2015. Be sure to like us on Facebook where I'll be sharing all things play and parenting! Help me support you by firing any play or parenting related questions you have and I'll be sure to tackle them on my blog in the new year!

Sending you warm wishes for quality family time, peace, love and joy this Christmas!
