What is Play Therapy?

Play therapy is a proven and widely used therapeutic approach to help children aged 3 to 11 freely express difficult thoughts and emotions through play. It’s a very effective way for children to deal with difficult feeling or memories—or ones they may not even know the words to express.
In a safe, comfortable playroom, with few imposed limits or rules, the therapist can observe the child, and help him or her explore
feelings through a natural, self-guided, self-healing process. Not only is this a safe way for children to process their experiences, play can also help kids to develop confidence and mastery in themselves.

How Play Therapy can Help Your Child Manage their Emotions

Play Therapy

Play therapy can help children through a variety of experiences, including anxiety, depression, grief, difficulties at school and problems with peers. It’s also a way to address a variety of family issues, such as divorce, separation, loss of a caregiver, chronic illness, and even abuse or neglect.

A considerable body of research has shown play therapy to be  effective for children experiencing a variety of social, emotional, behavioral and learning difficulties. Play helps children improve their emotional expression, develop coping strategies and increasing their empathy and respect for the thoughts and feelings of others. And as they become more able to understand complicated life situations though play therapy, children learn new interpersonal skills that can be used with peers or family members.
