Play Therapy provides an environment that is non-judgemental and supportive for a child. Children who are experiencing difficulties in their lives, whether emotional, physical, social or developmental, benefit from the Play Therapy experience. The trusting relationship that develops with the Therapist facilitates the expression of the child's feelings and difficulties within their play.
Following initial contact, usually by phone, with parent or guardian of the child I arrange a meeting with the adult/s to gather relevant background information and to answer any queries they may have. I then arrange a number of sessions with the child, following which a review with parent/s or carer/s takes place. At this review a decision may be taken for the child to continue attending Play Therapy for more sessions.
