Why Play Therapy ?

Play Therapy uses play, a child's primary form of communication, to help the child access the therapy. By using play the child is able to project and play symbolically to process their traumas. Developmentally, children find it hard to verbalise their feelings or situations that are troubling them. 

 

In the play room, each child is treated as an individual without judgement from the therapist. Play Therapy allows the child to explore their experiences in a safe environment at their developmental level. 

 

Play Therapy helps to develop self-esteem, problem-solving, coping mechanisms, decision-making, healthier relationships and communication.
