What is Play Therapy?

Play therapy gives children a safe place to explore and unpack their feelings and thoughts using play as their form of communication.

By engaging in play, children can work through difficult emotions and experiences, learn new skills and explore new concepts.

Who can benefit from Play Therapy?

Using a balance of directive and non-directive approaches tailored for each individual child, the therapist can support children with many different goals ranging from learning how to play, improving social and emotional skills, building self-confidence and self-esteem, improving social competence and working through difficult emotions and experiences.

How can Play Therapy help?

Emotional Expression:

Provides a safe and non-threatening environment for children to express their emotions, such as anger, sadness, fear, or frustration. Exploring feelings leads to a better understanding and managing their emotions.

Communication Skills:

Improve communication skills, allowing them to express themselves verbally and non-verbally. Encourages the development of vocabulary and the ability to convey thoughts and emotions.

Problem-Solving & Coping Skills:

Play activities teach children problem-solving, decision-making, and coping strategies. Practicing these skills in a controlled setting can translate to real-life situations.

Trauma & Stress:

Beneficial for children who have experienced trauma or high stress levels. It allows them to process and make sense of their experiences and develop resilience and coping mechanisms to deal with their emotional distress.

Behavioural Issues:

Effective in addressing and reducing behavioural problems such as aggression, defiance, and withdrawal.

By exploring and understanding the root causes of these behaviours through play, we can work with children to develop appropriate and constructive ways of interacting with the world.
