Play Therapy

Play therapy is a form of psychotherapy used with children, typically between the ages of 3 and 12, that helps them express their feelings, thoughts, and experiences through play.

The goal of play therapy is to help children develop healthy coping skills, improve their communication, and increase their self-esteem. During play therapy sessions, children are encouraged to use toys, games, and art materials to explore their emotions and work through difficult situations.

Play therapists are trained mental health professionals who use a variety of techniques, such as sand play, puppetry, and role-playing, to create a safe and supportive environment for the child. The therapist observes and interacts with the child during the play therapy sessions, providing guidance and support as needed.

Play therapy can be used to address a variety of emotional and behavioural issues, including anxiety, depression, trauma, grief, and social difficulties. It is often used in conjunction with other forms of therapy, such as family therapy or cognitive-behavioural therapy, to provide a comprehensive treatment approach for the child.
