”We cannot thank Yasmin enough for the difference she has made to aC Hewerdine (Lancashire Primary School)
pupil in our school in helping him overcome trauma that he experienced
early in his life. The whole process was really positive. We were
particularly impressed with the communication between school, Yasmin and
the pupil's Dad and the obvious nurturing and skilled approach that she
took with the pupil himself. She really has changed his life and enabled
us at school to now meet his needs going forward. Thank you so much

I’ve ever attended. Implementing change within 24 hours of attending a
workshop has proven effective with my parenting and even with me as an
individual, as a wife, a friend, a daughter, sister and even as a
daughter in law. When we shift perspectives and make those changes from
within. The outcome within just a few days is phenomenal and it’s a huge
thanks to your workshop that I was able to implement what I’ve learnt
from your vast knowledge.
I’m glad to say that my daughter and I are not angry at each other. We
are setting boundaries and limits. I have to admit...even I was the
problem not only my daughter.
”The workshop was well presented with relevant information relating to
early child care.
I found it to be very useful in helping me learn how to connect better
with my toddler. As parents I find we sometimes don’t really
“understand” our children and expect too much from them (and from
The workshop helped explain how to deal with children, not only
psychologically but more importantly emotionally. That there is an
underlying reason behind their behavior, a need being unmet, instead of
thinking that my child is “naughty”. Also, it’s not only about the
child. Our unmet needs, unresolved issues have an effect on our children
too, and boundaries are important for both parents and children. The
workshop helped explain that as parents we can set a peaceful and
positive tone in our homes, with respectful boundaries that help us and
our children. Applying the tips has helped my relationship with my son,
allowing a more positive connection between us, but also with boundaries

was explained well and in an interactive and non-judgmental way, which I
think is very important.

”'Therapy has helped my daughter as she is not negative or down-hearted anymore. She is much happier and optimistic.'Parent - S.J. Blackburn
”'Following the loss of his Granddad, my son, J (who is on the Autistic Spectrum), really struggled to cope. He was lagging behind in his school work, a little bit bad tempered at home and was often woken up at night by terrible and frightening dreams, he was also suffering socially as his behaviour exacerbated difficulties already present in many ASD children. J’s school suggested that he attend therapy sessions to help manage his grief. I was incredibly grateful for the help, although I didn’t really know just how much play therapy would be able to do for him at that time.Parent - F, Penwortham.
After a few weeks, it was clear that he was working through his emotions and undergoing the therapeutic process. Sadly, the school decided to cut funding for the therapy halfway through, but I’d seen such an improvement in the well being of my son that I spoke to Yasmin and arranged private sessions so that he was able to continue his therapy to the end. Yasmin is friendly and professional and my son really responded to her warmth and knowledge, she has helped him to manage his anger and his grief in a very kind and beautiful way that has established a strong and healthy foundation that I am certain will benefit J for the rest of his life.
Thanks to Yasmin, the process of developing better mental health and social behaviour through play and creative arts has been very gentle and organic for J. He has become more confident and insightful and he rarely has terrible dreams now, but when he does he is able to become calm and reassured again very quickly. Yasmin also helped me to show J how to embrace more constructive ways of thinking through activities. This and her wonderful sessions (and a heart-warming book she shared), has been a defining element in not only the development of my son’s ability to process grief and improve his relationships with friends, but it has also enriched understanding between myself and my son, and I really can’t be more grateful for that and I couldn’t recommend anybody more highly.
If you are looking for a way to help your child negotiate through difficult emotions or any tough experiences, I highly recommend play therapy and also (if not most particularly!) Yasmin herself. Her lovely nature and expertise will really help your child come to terms with any problems and help build those all important foundations required for a happy, healthy life.'
”'Yasmin is a wonderful play therapist. She is reliable, honest and very professional. She has the best interest of the children at heart at all times. Yasmin truly believes in the power of play therapy and works very hard to ensure the children receive quality therapy sessions. I would recommend Yasmin as a play therapist whole heartily.'Shanana Knight, TPC-Therapy Ltd.

”Play and Creative Arts therapy is a valuable therapeutic medium which has helped children to overcome various issues and difficulties. To name a few of these are bereavement, trauma, social, emotional and behavioural difficulties. Many of these issues affected the children in terms of their learning, behaviour and their home life. Yasmin is a dedicated Play Therapist whom with her calm and logical therapeutic methods has made a significant difference to the children. She is confident and very approachable especially when leasing with parents. I have no hesitation in recommending Blossoms Play Therapy.Mrs Khan, St Oswalds Primary School in Knuzden, Blackburn, Lancashire.

I would recommend this therapy to others. It can bring a lot of confidence in the child. I feel what we wanted has been achieved from the therapy.
”Play Therapy has been beneficial especially for my grandson, especially when the child has been through an ordeal. It has definitely helped him to feel better. Play Therapy helps to see what happens in a child's mind as children do not always speak about it.Grandparent - Mr H. Blackburn
