What is Play Therapy?

A developmentally appropriate, evidence-based method of counselling younger clients.

 

Children can play out, literally and/or metaphorically, their inner and real life experiences in a way that builds insight and capacity.

 

Play therapy allows children to express, regulate, communicate, practice and master new skills as well as their emotional responses.
