What is Play Therapy?

Play Therapy is a form of therapy that helps children to explore their feelings and express themselves. It can help children to make sense of what is happening in their lives, and communicate what it feels like to be them.

Children naturally use play to learn, communicate and explore their world. A play therapist can assist children to recover from difficult life experiences, by allowing them the freedom to express themselves in a safe and trusting environment.

Conventional talking therapies may be inappropriate for children who often struggle to put their feelings into words. Play therapy provides children with the opportunity to explore and understand these feelings.
