Who is Play Therapy For?
Play Therapy can be for anyone regardless of age, circumstances or needs. It is a creative and flexible form of therapy that offers different ways to experience yourself through the world of play. We offer an autism specialist service that provides unconditional acceptance and empathy towards each individual. Play Therapy can be particularly beneficial for children and adults who have experienced trauma or difficult early experiences.
What happens in a session and what are the Benefits?
Using a variety of modalities such as music, art, stories and puppetry; children and adults have an opportunity to express a full spectrum of emotions in a safe space. Through non-directive play and a positive relationship with their therapist, this can aid physical, emotional, and social development, including developments in self-esteem, social communication, sensory regulation and confidence.
