Play therapy is a proven method that allows children to discover how to express themselves through play. It is an effective way to help children with social, emotional and behavioural issues. Play is a child’s natural medium of expression and is essential for development. Through play, a child can relax, use their imagination and be in control. Play therapy uses this to help children deal with their emotions, release tensions and improve self esteem.
The therapist creates a safe, confidential and caring environment, allowing the child to be who they are, without judgement and with as few limitations as possible.
“Play therapy is a vital opportunity for children to “play out” those feelings- hatred, loneliness, anger, fear, failure or even feelings of inadequacy.” Virginia M., Axline, Play Therapy (1974)
