Maira Kalpogiannaki


Member since


My name is Maira Kalpogiannaki and I am the founder of Play Therapy Foundation. I am an enthusiastic and dedicated professional counsellor and play therapist, interested in working to support the wellbeing of children and young people of any ability level.

I have worked therapeutically with children and adolescents on a part and a full time basis since 2010. I have experience with typically developing children as well as SEND and SEMH individuals from a wide variety of backgrounds.

I am passionate about sharing my psychotherapeutic skills and experiences to promote a brighter future for children and young people. I am committed to providing play therapy and counselling in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment in which children are free to express their feelings and emotions

I work with both the children and their families on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of promoting healthier, happier and safer lives.
