Play Therapy is a form of psychotherapy and counselling that uses play in a non-directed method to allow the Child to lead therapy sessions. This process reveals and reflect the child’s behaviour back in such a way that the child can confront their own behaviour, giving the therapist a powerful diagnostic tool to determine the cause for any issues.
Play therapy allows children and people who are experiencing emotional or behavioural issues to open up their emotions in the safe space of the ‘playroom’, where they are allowed to face their thoughts and emotions nonverbally. It is cited as one of the most effective treatments for children suffering from trauma or PTSD; with a number of articles and papers written about its efficacy.
- Play allows children to learn how to develop a better sense of their abilities and gives them more confidence.
- Play allows children to develop creative problem solving abilities.
- Play allows children to learn about empathy and respect for feelings of others by giving them space to get in touch with their own thoughts and feelings.
