What is Play Therapy?
Play Therapy is using play as a means to help children in expressing and communicating their feelings. It helps the children to identify and bring the areas which causes emotional and/or behavioural issues to the surface, in order to deal with it and find healing.

How it works
You can make an appointment by either contacting us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or calling us. We will then email all the necessary forms to you with the information regarding Play Therapy and how it works as well as an account agreement. Once you have signed and sent back the account agreement, a date and time can be booked for an assessment.
After the assessment a report is written that explains the findings of the assessment. Thereafter a parent feedback session is booked in order to discuss the report in detail and parents also have the opportunity to ask questions and raise their concerns.
