CHILD PLAY THERAPY

Play Therapy is a theoretically based structured approach which uses play, the child's natural means of expression, to assist them in coping with emotional stresses or difficult behaviours. By focusing on play rather than talk, this allows the child to make connections to their world, gain self-awareness and use play to explore different ways of being. Play therapy is suitable for children aged 3 years and older, and is particularly effective for Primary-aged children with or without special educational needs.


Adolescents can also benefit from play therapy approaches, but may choose drawing, sand trays, music and clay in preference to actual play.

Unlike other play, Play therapy is play with a therapeutic objective, with the therapist supporting the client directively and non-directively to address their needs.


We are happy to offer services to schools, social services and individuals.

CREATIVE ARTS THERAPY

Art and creative materials such as paints, clay and music enable clients to express themselves, relax, develop self-confidence and coping strategies.
