About Play Healing

Debi is a musician and therapist with over 20 years of experience working with children and young people in a professional role. As the mum of a tween and a teenager, she is passionate about sharing some of the knowledge she has gained about connecting deeply with children in a fast paced digital world.



Connecting you with your children

Connection Sessions based on Theraplay® Principles

Theraplay® is a relationship focused method that promotes healthy connection between parent and child where the practitioner works alongside the caregivers. Sessions involve respectful, emotionally attuned, interactive and physical play.

Theraplay® has been especially effective with:

•Children with ASD.

•Children with ADHD / impulsive / hyperactive.

•Children with Developmental Delays.

•Children struggling with loss and separation.


•Looked after children or adopted children.

MIM Assessments

An MIM Assessment is a structured technique for observing and assessing the relationship between two people unique to Theraplay® developed by Marianne Marschak. This is basis of the treatment planning process for Theraplay® Informed Connection Sessions.

Skype Calls/Family Coaching

With the demands of longer working hours on so many of us we have a limited amount of Skype slots availiable. Request a call and we’ll see if we can make this work for you.

Creative Connection Classes

Debi will be holding small group practical workshops with parents who want to form stronger attachments with their children. Contact Debi for more information.

Educational Workshops

Debi will be holding Workshops at some of the finest locations in Wiltshire and beyond. Subscribe to be the first to hear about upcoming events over the summer.

Public Speaking

Debi loves to engage her audience and draws from her teaching and creative background to inspire and empower parents from all walks of life to connect in a deeper and powerful way with their children. She’d love to hear from you if you have an event that you think would fit in with Play Healings ethos.
