Welcome to Child Play Therapy

If your child is having difficulties whilst growing up, then Child Play Therapy could be the answer. It’s an effective way of resolving issues that your child may be experiencing.

Children communicate in many ways, with play being one of the most important forms of expression. Play Therapy is a structured approach that builds on the normal communication and learning processes of children. It works by giving them the freedom to express themselves using toys and activities in a playroom, meaning that they can communicate without having to answer any potentially difficult questions. The therapist provides a safe space where the child is free to play in the way they choose, the therapist then facilitates their play by tracking, reflecting feelings, and encouraging as a relationship is built up between them.
