Play therapy is based on the belief that play is a child’s natural way of expressing themselves. Through play children can play out their thoughts, feelings and difficulties just as an adult may talk out their difficulties.
The therapeutic relationship between the play therapist and child provides opportunities for healing and development. The child is provided with a safe space where they can express themselves. Play therapy facilitates the development of emotional intelligence and resilience, while helping the child to make sense of their world.
All children can benefit from play therapy as it promotes self-confidence, communication, creativity and problem solving skills.
