can benefit from Play Therapy?
Play Therapy is an
effective intervention for children with a variety of presenting problems,
who have been abused, neglected or traumatised
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.
