As play is a child’s natural form of expression, therapy through play allows children to communicate at their own level without having to put their thoughts and feelings into words. Play allows the child to release needs, fears and wishes. It also helps them to address emotional and behavioral difficulties.
How can Play Therapy help my child?
- Play Therapy provides your child with emotional support, helping them understand their feelings.
- It gives them the space to make sense of life experiences by playing them out at their own pace.
- It can help your child to deal with conflict/angry feelings in more appropriate ways.
- It helps with coping skills and social skills.
