Helplink’s Play Therapy and Creative Therapy Services

Play Therapy with Helplink is for children aged 3 to 10 years old and our Creative Therapy  service is for young people aged 11 to 15 years old.

These forms of therapy allow children and young people the time and space to work out what may be troubling them and also to express their feelings through their most natural method of communication – PLAY.

In our Galway Play Therapy and Creative Therapy service appointments are 45 minutes long, they are non-directive and non-investigative in nature, whereby the child/young person leads the sessions and the therapist follows. The room holds the play/creative therapy ‘tool kit’ which includes sand, clay, puppets, role play, art materials, therapeutic stories, creative visualisations and music/movement. The aim is that when the child/young person feels comfortable they will begin to express the negative or difficult emotions through their actions, the therapist is able to track and observe what is happening and gently guide the child/young person when necessary.  The therapist provides the space which allows the child/young person to play/be creative as they need to with as few limits as possible but as many as necessary (for physical and emotional safety). All play/creative therapy sessions are confidential, details of the sessions shall only be disclosed in line with child protection procedures.

Who is this service for?: Any child over the age of 3 years can benefit from play therapy appointments as this type of therapy nurtures creative thinking, builds self-esteem, confidence, resilience and much more. Play therapy can be specifically used to support children with any emotional or behavioural difficulties, who have suffered bereavement/loss, suffering with anxiety or are having any family issues but to name a few referral reasons. Creative therapy is for older children aged 11 to 15 as above this service can assist these children across multiple areas. At this time appointments are only available in Galway City.

Our Play/Creative Therapist: Denise Gordon is graduate of NUI Galway and the Academy of Child and Play Psychotherapy. She holds a Postgraduate Certificate in Practice Based Play Therapy (NFQ:Level 9), as well as this Denise has completed her Degree in Arts with Children Studies (NUIG).  All of Denise’s work is guided by the Play Therapy International Framework and she is a member of Play Therapy Ireland. For more on Play Therapy Ireland, you can visit their Website at http://www.playtherapy.ie/. Furthermore, Denise is supervised, insured and Garda vetted.

Fee for appointment/s: If either parent is working the fee for one appointment is €65. It both parents (or if lone parent) are (is) unemployed one appointment is €45.

Adults: Counselling and Psychotherapy

Counselling can a provide safe supportive place to find new ways to address a crisis in work or a relationship. Psychotherapy works on long standing problems often rooted in difficult traumatic early life experiences which when spoken about in detail can enable you to make better choices in relationships and life in general.

Counselling, sometimes called “talk therapy,” is a conversation or a series of conversations between the counsellor and client.  Counselling usually focuses on a particular problem and in taking steps decided by the client to address this problem.  The problem is often discussed in the present tense without too much attention to past experiences. You do not have to be in crisis to benefit from counselling or psychotherapy – however, it can be a great support or resource at times of crisis or difficulty in our lives.

Psychotherapy, like counselling, is based on a healing relationship between the therapist and client. Psychotherapy takes place over a series of meetings between the therapist and client over a longer timespan  than counselling. It enables you to deal with deeper, more long-term issues that may have their roots in your past, (e.g. traumatic issues from childhood) which are affecting our present life.


Adolescents: Counselling

Adolescence is a complex developmental stage, starting around twelve years of age. It is distinct from childhood and yet is not adulthood. Adolescent therapy helps teenagers and their families to negotiate the difficulties that can sometimes emerge at this time.  These include challenges in relationships at home, school, moving to third level education, bullying, sexuality, eating disorders, withdrawal, depression, anxiety, aggression, suicidal thoughts, family changes and bereavement.  Counselling can help the adolescent understand and make sense of their feelings/behaviour and who they are and want to be. It can also be the place where they learn about relating with a safe and caring adult.

I provide confidential one to one counselling and psychotherapy. I offer teenagers a safe, non- judgemental space  to explore the issues and challenges that they are meeting their daily lives.

It is important that adolescents feel secure to talk in a confidential place.  As such parents will be asked to allow their child the freedom to attend their sessions on their own.

I am interest in working with this age group as I believe that many of the problems faced by adults later in life could be helped with counselling and psychotherapy earlier in life.


Children: Play Therapy

Play Therapy refers to a variety of techniques and methods used to help children  who are experiencing difficulties with their emotions or behaviour.  Playing, drawing, building, using sand and pretending, as well as talking, are important ways of sharing feelings and resolving problems for children and adolescents.

Play Therapy helps children understand confused feelings and upsetting events. Rather than having to explain what is troubling them, as adult therapy usually expects, children use play to communicate at their own level and at their own pace. Play Therapy helps children work through emotional, social and behavioural difficulties and helps address family problems. It uses the medium of play, rather than talk, to help the child learn to express themselves, explore and make sense of the world in which they live and resolve any difficult or painful experiences.

Play therapy may involve an individual child, a family, or multiple families or a group of children. In children and adolescents, playing, drawing, building, using sand and pretending, as well as talking, are important ways of sharing feelings and resolving problems.

We provide help for anyone who is having problems in their lives because they are drinking alcohol heavily or dependently. The treatment is done in your own home.This may also include an Alcohol Detox and this is done, again in your own home, by a registered, qualified nurse. Our treatment is called Integrated Treatment or Dual Diagnosis Care. Dual Diagnosis are the words you may hear when someone is talking about a person that has a mental health difficulty, like anxiety, stress or depression and along with that they also have an alcohol or drug problem. This means that the person is treated for their mental health condition along with their addiction or alcohol abuse problem. If both problems are diagnosed then both must be treated or neither will get better.

I offer both long and short term talking therapy, lasting between 6 weeks and ongoing as long as you feel comfortable and the therapy is beneficial to you. I also offer counseling for couples. Each session lasts for 50 minutes. We can discuss the likely duration for the therapy in your first session, but many clients prefer to leave it open rather than working to time limits. 
As a therapist trained in both Transpersonal and Integrative techniques, I tailor my approach largely to you as an individual as well as to the stage in the therapeutic process that you are at. In addition to therapeutic discussion on the issue you present, we may work with the creative imagination which can be very powerful, should you be open, ready and willing to do this kind of exercise. For example, we may use dreams, music, sand trays, visualisations, imagery and more in order to guide you to an exploration of your own inner knowing.
I work with issues such as (but not limited to) the following:
Abuse (emotional, sexual, physical, verbal)
Career / life direction
Eating disorders
Low self esteem
Personality Disorders i.e., Borderline personality
PTSD and trauma
Relationship difficulties
Spiritual direction
Sexual problems

I am experienced in working with clients from all over the world, including refugees, immigrants and asylum seekers, and speaking a variety of languages in the therapy.
