This is an interview about play and playfulness. It gives a flavour of my take on play, why play is so vital, why it sometimes does not develop, links between stress, trauma and lack of play, how we can help facilitate play, in therapy and in life, and the ways in which contemporary society and its pressures as well as the pandemic, have affected opportunities for play and creativity that children and adults so badly need
