Play for therapeutic professionals

Why Clear Sky are the experts for Therapeutic Professionals

We are experts in child-led therapeutic play. We have been working since 2009 to provide support to therapeutic professionals all over the UK working to support children’s mental health and emotional wellbeing.

We provide an attachment-based skills approach through our suite of CPD accredited training programmes and support a global network of practitioners through our online learning institute The Institute for Play and Attachment, providing vitual CPD, research, resources and self-care.

We also publish a searchable Directory of Attachment Play specialists, enabling our colleagues to promote their services within their own community.
