Play Therapy and Creative Counselling 

 

erplaytherapy and Creative Counselling encourages imagination and creativity, increases confidence and concentration abilities. Through play, children make sense of their emotions and can communicate how they feel.    Play therapy can often be used as an alternative to “talking therapies” and is used with children as play is the main language they use to express themselves. As the child or young person increases their vocabulary, creative counselling can be helpful.  Both, Play Therapy and Creative Counselling, help children and young people to communicate their feelings and experiences in a non-judgmental, accepting and respectful atmosphere.
 

Play therapy and Creative Counselling can be an effective intervention
for many childhood difficulties including:
  • Anxiety

  • ADD/ADHD

  • Aggressive behaviour

  • Dyslexia/Dyspraxia

  • Bereavement

  • ASD

  • Bullying

  • Parental separation

  • Soiling or wetting

  • Separation anxiety

  • Difficult life transitions

  • Parental depression

  • Illness/hospitalisation of child or loved one

  • Learning disabilities

  • Trauma

  • Attachment issues

 

Play therapy can be used with children from age three upwards. There is no upper age limit.

Creative counselling with a sensitively attuned therapist is also very effective with young people who feel uncomfortable when asked to talk.

Play Therapy and Creative Counselling helps children in a variety of ways to:        

  • Receive  emotional support as they learn to understand more about their own
    feelings and thoughts . 

  • Gain confidence to express their emotions more effectively and accurately.

  • Learn to trust their own feelings and trust in themselves to share their inner world.   

  • Grow in self esteem as they learn to manage and cope with difficult emotions.

Play Therapy and Creative Counselling

It is natural for parents and carers to feel upset or worried when their child or young person  has a problem that causes their child or young person to be sad, disruptive, rebellious, unable to cope or inattentive.

When a child or young person feels confused by feelings they will often feel unable to find the words to say what is troubling them. Rather than having to explain what is upsetting or unsettling them, as Adult Therapy expects, children and young people use play and creative media to communicate at their own level and at their own pace.
