Child Centred Play Therapy

Empowering children to make sense of their experiences, relationships and emotional world through play.

Therapists create a safe and supportive environment for the child, entering their world through play and allowing the child to lead the way. Nurturing children to develop skills that will support then through life; such as self- awareness, building positive self-esteem, relationship building, developing resilience and problem-solving skills.

Play therapy tailored to the individual needs of each child and their family

Child centred play therapy can help your child with many specific needs and challenges including:

  • Anger management
  • Anxiety and self esteem
  • Hyperactivity
  • Self-harm and depression
  • Sleeping and eating difficulties
  • Sibling rivalry
  • Feeding and mealtime issues
  • Selective mutism

How play therapy supports your child

Play therapy is a unique evidence-based intervention that fits with the developmental needs of children, who unlike adults, are better able to express themselves and process their experiences through play than talking-based therapy.

  • Adjustment to change 
  • Divorce/ separation
  • Grief and loss
  • Abuse and neglect 
  • Learning difficulties
  • Attachment issues
  • Bullying and social difficulties
  • Chronic illness and hospitalisations
  • Trauma
  • ADD/ ADHD and Autism

Therapy where you want it, when you need it

Available as both a clinic-based and mobile therapy service, our play therapists will work with you and your child to determine the most suitable environment for effective therapy.
