About Clare

It is my privilege to support the work that Out of the Woods do, in helping them to gain funding to subsidise their therapies for families in need in Cornwall and to develop other areas of their business in order to sustain this.

I worked as a Behaviour Support Worker in West and Mid Cornwall. I then trained as a teacher and have taught Early Years and Primary as well as KS3 severe learning difficulties. Having taken a break to raise my own small family, I am currently enjoying a community focussed role in my local library. These experiences mean that I am keenly aware of the local levels of need.

Having studied with PTUK myself, I understand the theories, processes and benefits of play therapy, but at the time (many years ago!) I could not see a way through to providing therapy for the families who couldn’t afford it; to break cycles of trauma and improve their own and their children’s life opportunities. Therefore I am in awe of the strength of vision that Carol and Kerra share and want to do everything I can to support them.

"I cannot begin to explain the difference that play therapy made to my son. He was dealing with some major anxiety but now after his play therapy sessions with Carol he is a changed child, so happy and confident. I cannot thank Out of the Woods enough for the change that they made to our son's life and our whole family unit. I would recommend this to anyone".


I received great support from Out Of The Woods when our family needed it the most. Thank you.
