My name is Nicki Malcolm, and I am a Play and Creative Arts Therapist based in Sidcup, Kent. Since 2004 I have worked in various environments with children including pre-school and primary school settings. During this time I have been working with children therapeutically since 2011.
Every one of us experiences difficulties in our life at some point. These could be past experiences or something that we are struggling with at this present moment. Sometimes we have persistent feelings about a person or situation and we are unable to understand why. Feelings of in balance and disconnection from within impact our feeling of wholeness. From my own personal experience of having Play and Creative Art Therapy, I know that change has to come from within. I will give you the safe and protected space to explore any issues to find inner peace in a non judgemental therapeutic relationship.
By projecting thoughts and experiences in creative play it allows the individual to understand themselves and their inner world. They can 'play out' traumas such attachment issues and more.
By having insight of self-healing and instinctively can do so through an adult's presence and acceptance.
I am a member of PTUK (Play Therapy UK) and I am on their register of Play Therapists accredited by the PSA (Professional Standards Authority) for health and social care. This is an independent body, accountable to Government.
I complete ongoing CPD (Continued Professional Development) as part of the requirements of PTUK and I have my own supervision. In addition I am also an accredited Play and Creative Arts Therapist (November 2019) and a Child and Parent/Carer Attachment Practitioner - Big Toes, Little Toes (2014).
