Play Therapy

Play is the universal language of communication and self-expression. Play is used to assist the client to transform and change the issues that causes problems. Play can be sensory, perceptual, symbolic or a combination of these. A firm belief that a child has the ability to solve their own problems and devise creative solutions is a cornerstone of play therapy. Play therapy utilizes very specific activities such as games, imagining, fantasy, exploration, mystery, problem-solving, symbolism, story-telling, role-play, puppets, toys, art, drama and metaphors to address difficulties.
