My name is Sydella Gallick, I currently offer therapeutic interventions for children and their families privately and through Aurora Counselling.
I work systemically where needed and depending on the needs of the family.
I have over 20 years experience working as a mentor, peer educator, group facilitator, childcare assistant, residential work, drug and alcohol practitioner etc and although I am a Play Therapist I utilise these tools in my intervention.
I am a restorative yoga teacher, meditation teacher, reiki practitioner, among other things, which are some of the different aspects I can bring to the work that I do.
All qualifications, training and experience are listed on LinkedIN. See below for the link :)
What is Play Therapy?
In layman's terms children (and adults believe it or not) communicate through play. Our unconcious is drawn to colours, people, places and smells etc
When we are in a safe and consistent space we are able to feel at ease to allow all parts of the self just to be. When we can do this we can create what we want to be. The behaviours that helped us survive until today are not always the behaviours we need for tomorrow
Syd was amazing with my daughter and has made a huge impact on us as a family. She is so warm and welcoming and fun!
Inspirational - Creative - Unique - Sydella Gallick Art appeals to all of ones emotions. It is refreshingly different and very special.
This artist is one to watch!
Play therapy was something I was hesitant at the beginning, but not doing it sooner was the biggest mistake, the sessions are amazing and helped me work out so many issues I struggled with during my alevels, which traditional therapy didn’t do much to ease, it was an amazing stress reliever and gave me a safe place to talk, can’t thank her enough thanks Syd! 200% recommend!
Sydella is a Soulful Artist...full of ideas, dynamism, fun and Creativity!
I met syd in may this year after my daughter was seriously injusred in a bad road accident. I was hesitant at first about play therapy but after a few weeks all my doubts left me. Within a few weeks I could see my daughters confidence return and she was starting to become her old self again. It's been a difficult year for all of us but I can honestly say I don't where my daughter and I would be without Syds help. Not only has she helped my daughter but she also helped me understand her needs more and how I could be of help for her rehabilitation. A great mentor and a great therapist. Thanks for everything.
Highly talented and seriously passionate, Sydella has such massive talent and an amazing personality to back it up. Couldn't recommend highly enough.
