Play Therapy

Play therapy is a structured, theoretically based approach to therapy that builds on the normal communicative and learning processes of children. Play therapy is generally employed with children aged 3 through 11 and provides a way for them to express their experiences and feelings through a natural, self-guided process.

Play therapy works by offering children an unhurried experience in a neutral space where they can use play to explore their troubles and work towards self-healing. It allows the therapist to strategically use play to help the child express what is troubling them when they do not have the verbal language to express their thoughts and feelings. It is through this expression and the positive trusting relationship that develops between the therapist and child during play therapy sessions that allows them to work through and make sense of their difficult and sometimes painful experiences, thus providing a corrective emotional experience necessary for healing.

Play Therapy can be helpful for children who have had to deal with…

family breakdown, separation or divorce

issues of loss, such as illness or death of a loved one

serious accidents or disasters

anxiety or depression

being hospitalised

adopted or are in foster care

domestic violence

trauma including abuse (sexual, physical or emotional)

Being diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD)

Or if your child has behavioural problems, is acting out or being withdrawn, this form of therapy can also help.
