What happens in Play Therapy?

Before a child begins play therapy sessions, a meeting needs to take place between myself and their parent(s) or caregiver. This is an opportunity to discuss their child’s needs, and gather any background information that may assist in understanding their problems. Consistency is important, so play therapy sessions will usually take place once a week, at the same time. They will need to be brought to their appointment by a parent / caregiver, and picked up at the end of the session. Sessions usually last one hour.

Sometimes it is helpful for a parent / caregiver to be a part of sessions. This will always be discussed and planned beforehand. Play therapy may be a short-term intervention or a process that extends over a longer period, according to a child’s needs.
