What is Play Therapy
Play therapy provides the child with a safe space where they can explore their thoughts, feelings and life experiences. It combines the creative, non-verbal and innate aspects of play in children to work with them therapeutically. Using non-directive play techniques, the therapist engages with the child. Additionally, the therapist observes the child’s behaviour in various play scenarios. Play Therapy allows children to communicate their feelings and experiences in a way they understand. The therapeutic process is individualised and person-centred. That means it’s adjusted to the developmental stage of the child to foster self-growth.
