How does Play Therapy work?

Play therapy employs creative strategies and interventions as a way to assess and understand the child's inner world. With the help of a therapist, children play out and express life themes, challenges, and identify preferred ways of being. This understanding is then used to work through difficulties.

Why choose Play Therapy?

Children often struggle to express their inner world in words alone,

which is why we observe behavioral changes when they face overwhelming challenges. Play therapy provides a non-threatening and developmentally appropriate approach for children to communicate their feelings and experiences.

Play therapy enhances self-expression, fosters problem-solving skills, improves self-esteem, and supports overall psychological well-being. It offers a safe space for exploration, expression, and positive change, helping children and their families thrive.
