About Theraplay UK

Our fundamental aim is that Theraplay® UK will serve the needs of children and families through the provision of high-quality Theraplay® training and certification to suitable professionals.  Theraplay® UK was set up in July 2020, directed by Viv Norris and Fiona Peacock, and works in tandem with The Theraplay® Institute (TTI) in the US.  The development of the organisation is supported by a steering group that meets quarterly and working groups that meet regularly.  We book all UK trainings and manage the Supervisors-in-Training and Trainers-in-Training programmes. We match practicum students with local supervisors and will take over responsibility for the Dyadic and Group Practicums on 1 January 2024.
