Elishia has a warm, collaborative approach to therapy. She has experience in providing play-based therapy to preschool and primary school-aged children using both non-directive (child-led) and directive (therapist-led) approaches, which are appropriate to the client’s age, support needs and presentation. Elishia is particularly drawn to the practice of child-centred play therapy, in which she has recently completed her clinical training program.
Separate to her work with Play Therapy Melbourne, Elishia provides individual therapy to both child and adult clients with a mix of presentations in a private clinic setting.
In her therapeutic practice with both children and adults Elishia is drawn to humanistic approaches, and draws on attachment theory, interpersonal neurobiology and polyvagal theory to support her clients.
