Create Hope (play therapy and therapeutic support for families)

Create Hope is a Christian charity working with families within the Berkshire area.  We offer play therapy, and therapeutic support to children, young people and families to support them with their emotional needs.

Create Hope’s aim is to reach out to people and enable them to find their voice through creativity.   It is about individuals; showing people they matter, that everyone matters.  The hope is to make a difference in someone's life; helping them see beyond their troubles.
