Doug had been working with us here at the clinic in his support role as comfort and play therapy with children and young people. but has recently retired. We are currently on-boarding our new team member Cooper.
Needless to say Cooper will help adults and sometimes those with learning disabilities to communicate feelings through play. He will also work with us with some occasional outdoor therapy when the weather permits supporting outdoor exercise as part of the “big 4” things that improve health and well-being. Cooper will only work part time as he needs to fit in a busy schedule at home too!
If you would like to work with Cooper then send us a message and we will ask him to come back to you!
