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 and innate aspects of play in children to work with them therapeutically. Using play techniques, the therapist engages with the child and observes their behaviour in various play scenarios. Using play techniques allows children to communicate their feelings and experiences from a way they understand. The therapeutic process is individualised and adjusted to the developmental stage of the child to foster self-growth.
