Play Therapy


Play therapy is a form of therapy that gives children an opportunity to express feelings, show their knowledge, and work through problems in a way that comes naturally to them. Their language skills don’t develop as quickly as their cognitive abilities, so play allows them to communicate things that they aren’t able to put into words. Even if they have good verbal skills for their age, play often feels like a more natural and comfortable medium of expression – essentially, it’s their first “language” and the easiest for them to use. Play therapy can be unstructured or structured; the technique that is used is usually decided after consultation with the child’s caregivers and the child.
