Play Therapy is a growing specialist area within the mental health and early childhood sectors. It is an evidence-based profession, in which play is used as the medium to transform children's lives. Some challenges Play Therapy addresses are:

- Abuse

- Trauma

- Developmental disorders

- ASD related challenges

- Mental health issues

- Behavioural issues 

- Low self esteem 

- Peer relationships

- Social difficulties

 

Under the guidance of a qualified Play Therapist, it is within play—children’s natural form of communication, that the effectiveness of therapy occurs. Play allows children to express and process the unmanageable in manageable ways. It provides the emotional distance necessary for communication, learning and processing.
