Children’s Therapy

Play Therapy

The play therapy package is offered to children aged 5 and above who have suffered or are suffering trauma or loss. It is a non-directive, child centered approach whereby the child explores his or her feelings through play and begins to make sense of their experiences. The therapist will provide and set out a selection of toys that would be relevant to the child’s experiences. The child is then free to explore their surroundings in which ever form they choose. The therapist will then interpret the child’s expressive behavior by observing the play, recording that information and then make a final assessment on child’s emotional state. The sessions are fully supported by the therapist and are delivered in the school setting over a 12 week period.
This non-directive approach enables the therapist to assess and evaluate the child’s emotional state and their current environment through the significance of their actions. ‘That information is then used as a basis to refer the family/ child on to other agencies for further assessment. We have found that using some directive pieces within sessions can assist our work and if we feel this is necessary we will include carefully chosen tried and tested activities that the therapist believe will be useful for the child.
