  • About

    By Dr Margaret Lowenfeld

    It was in 1938, that I managed to get on to a course of play therapy for children, run by Dr Margaret Lowenfeld and her willing helpers in Pembroke Villas W6. Dr. Lowenfeld’s medical work, mostly with young students from the public schools and Oxbridge, that came to her found some of her methods helped the under-developed child in their psyches; and set about dealing with young children suffering from behaviour difficulties. At that time any special individual set up, would not be recognised by educational and medical authorities, but like all pioneers with new ideas, what Dr Lowenfeld had to offer disturbed children was very rewarding. To make it pay, she took in interested people who could pay fees for a three-year course in Play Therapy, and when they passed, would be a le to work in the very young, and new child guidance clinics, or in their own premises.
