Play therapy is child led and is a counselling method that involves being with the child and interacting on their terms.
Kids often can’t easily put into words their complex thoughts and feelings but play is an easy means of communication through which they can act out events in their lives and explore their feelings and solutions.
I have a range of hand-picked toys that encourage children to express themselves and their feelings. Children will choose what they’d like to play with and how they would like to use the toys. As a therapist I will listen with empathy and understanding, while setting appropriate limits when needed.
I’ve completed certification in Synergetic Play Therapy and am passionate about this technique’s application when working with children.
More than a simple technique, it’s a way of being and interacting that brings your awareness of your being into synergy with your thoughts and feelings.
