Play therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses play to help children deal with emotional and mental health issues. By using play as the medium, children are able to explore their feelings and share them with the therapist that they might not be able to share with parents or care givers.
Play therapy is non-invasive and provides a way for children to express their experiences and feelings through a natural, self-guided, self-healing process. Play therapy is widely recognised as an effective therapy that works at a child’s own pace and helps to improve children’s mental health and well-being.
