Play Therapy Counselling for all ages

Play Therapy isn’t Just Play

Play Therapy is not the same as regular, everyday play. While the spontaneous play is a natural and essential part of the developmental process, Play Therapy is a systematic and therapeutic approach. In-play therapy, toys are like the child’s words and play is the child’s language (Landreth, 2002). Through play, therapists may help children learn more adaptive behaviors when there are emotional or social skills deficits (Pedro-Carroll & Reddy, 2005). The positive relationship that develops between therapist and child during play therapy sessions can provide a corrective emotional experience necessary for healing (Moustakas, 1997). Play therapy may also be used to promote cognitive development and provide insight about and resolution of inner conflicts or dysfunctional thinking in the child
