Toucan for Children was set up in March 2010 by Angie Beard and Janice Watkins to meet the needs of children who are experiencing emotional difficulties.
Toucan for Children provides a play therapy service for children and young people between the ages of 4 and 13 years who live in Gloucestershire and surrounding areas. Our team of therapists offer children a safe place to explore and work-through feelings and behaviours that are causing upset and difficulties in their lives.
Play therapy is to children, what counselling is to adults. Play is the language of children and whereas adults may be able to talk through their problems and feelings, play therapy offers children the opportunity to explore the feelings that are causing them upset and disruption.
