Compassionate, safe and professional counselling services
Play therapy is a form of therapy that utilizes play as a means of communicating and resolving emotional and behavioural difficulties.
For children, play is one of the primary methods of learning, development and communicating feelings, thoughts and concerns. It is, therefore, a natural medium for children to communicate, work through issues and explore alternative ways of coping and resolving their problems while developing an understanding of the impact of their behavior.
- Verbal therapy is limited with children; play therapy allows children to express and work through issues using their natural “language”.
- Play provides a safe and familiar environment for children in counselling.
- Play provides the counsellor with an uncensored look into the child’s inner world and experience.
- Children often move between art and play therapy naturally in a Child Therapy session. Children will often ‘play-out’ their issues similar to the way adults talk-out their feelings.
