Play Therapy

Children face many obstacles while growing up and at times they may experience feelings of stress, anxiety or grief; knowing how to deal with these emotions can be difficult for young children.

Who is Play Therapy for?

Play Therapy can help treat children with a number of emotional and psychological problems including, Abuse, Anxiety, Behavioural Problems, Bereavement, Phobias, Sleep Problems, Stress, and Trauma.

How Does Play Therapy Work?

Young children frequently express themselves through play, and often this manifests creatively through drawing, storytelling, music or movement. Therapists use play as an effective tool to bring about a better understanding of the child’s inner experiences and to help young children make sense of difficult emotions, feelings and behaviours. Therapists use Play not only to communicate; but to also support a treatment plan centred on growth and development.

I had a course of CBT Counselling with The Harley Psychology & Therapy Group (Richmond) and although it didn’t provide me with the quick fix miracle solution I was hoping for, it has made my problems feel more manageable.
