Children think by doing. They communicate with their behaviour and learn about the world through play. As a Play Therapist I am able to enter the child’s world to discover their thoughts, feelings and concerns and to help them grow or recover from difficult experiences. Children may act out their feelings with difficult or unusual behaviour or they may hide their feelings by becoming withdrawn. If you are concerned about your child and would like some help I will first discuss your concerns then spend some time watching the child play to find out about theirs. I can then support you with ways you can help your child and can offer Play Therapy sessions to support the child. Children can be very resilient and given a therapeutic space to explore usually know just what they need to do.
