Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist
What is The Be Room?
The goal of The Be Room is to empower children, young people and parents to feel and be their best selves.
What We Offer?
Play therapy is to children is what talk therapy is to adults. It is a developmentally appropriate and highly effective method of helping children aged 3 upwards deal with difficult experiences in their lives.
A mix of creative techniques, playfulness and talking therapy provides adolescents with the opportunity to explore their feelings, enhance their self-awareness and sense of self.
An online or face-to-face supportive space for you to reflect on the concerns and connections you are currently experiencing on your parenting journey.
Hi I'm Denise
I am an accredited Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist and Play Therapist, former Primary School Teacher, Mammy to two of my greatest teachers’ ever – Hannah and Teddy . I am currently living in the wonderful Kerry, Ireland with my lovely husband, children and our dog Pip.
I Love to Help Teachers and Parents Feel Empowered.
Keeping it Simple
Non-complicated, easy to digest information on the developing brain on a child and adolescent.
Keeping it Real
Regulation strategies, self-care reminders, know-how on emotions and behaviours that are normal versus concerning.
Keeping it Fun
Play and playfulness are fundamental in parenting and teaching. Learn why and how and get ideas to implement to home and at school.
Simple things can make all the difference
When We Know Better, We Do Better
I aim to share a variety of information and inspiration on all things play, the brain and emotional wellness. Knowledge that I wish I had known as a young teacher and that I am so glad to know as a parent.
