Jesse Velik


Jesse graduated with a Master of Child Play Therapy from Deakin University, where he now also works as a Play Therapy faculty member. 


Play has always been at the centre of what Jesse enjoys doing. With a background in the arts and arts education, Jesse has taught drama in Australia and the UK, as well as holding qualifications in drama from both regions. He also uses his background in the arts to develop new and exciting approaches to Play Therapy, hoping to make it even more fun and accessible for children in need. These approaches include Filmmaking Therapy.


Jesse is a member of APPTA (Australasia Pacific Play Therapy Association), a staunch advocate of education around mental health, a lifelong Melbourne Demons supporter, and a very proud husband and father.
