Play therapy is a play-based process that supports children in expressing their thoughts and emotions.
While adults have the capability to talk about issues they are facing, children are unable to understand and express themselves in a similar way. Instead, children use play to demonstrate and work through their emotional experiences and struggles.
Through the use of play therapy, children are able to recreate difficult emotional experiences, shifting their understanding of past and present events. As the process continues, children gain a sense of confidence and comfort, resulting in greater enjoyment of activities and relationships in their lives.
