Who can benefit from Play Therapy?

Play Therapy is an effective intervention for children with a variety of presenting problems, including:
Children who have been abused, neglected or traumatised
Children who have experienced loss through bereavement, family breakdown or separation from their culture of origin
Children who are ill, disabled or who cope with a family member with disabilities or illness
Children who have witnessed violence or the abuse of alcohol or drugs
Children who have behavioural or emotional difficulties as a result of their experiences.

Play therapy can offer children a space in which the feelings these experiences generate can be expressed and contained.
It is appropriate for children of all ages, but is most often used for children aged between 2 ½ and 12 years.
I generally work with individual children, but also have experience of working with siblings and joint work involving parents / caregivers.
