What is Creative Play Therapy?
It's a way of working with children who are experiencing emotional distress which can affect the way they develop, behave and function in everyday life.
Play Therapy is a process that helps a child communicate their thoughts, feelings and behaviour through play. Play Therapy is child-centred and non-directive – the child isn't put under pressure to talk about their difficulties but the therapist will help them explore some of the themes that come up in their play.
The relationship between the child and therapist will enable the child to process their feelings and through play. Children can learn to value themselves through play. They can become resourceful imagining other possibilities and other ways of being. it can help to process life events and can facilitate a child in act out and release pent up feelings of tension, frustration, insecurity, aggression, fear and/or confusion.
It's particularly useful for children aged 3ys to 8yrs and can help with a variety of emotional, social and physical difficulties.
The very best way to help a child to learn is to play with them.
