Play is an essential part of human growth. Through play we learn, experiment, resolve inner conflicts, and cultivate relationships. Child centered play therapy is a non-directive form of treatment that helps children better process their experiences and develop more effective strategies for managing their worlds. Just as adults use language, children use play to express their thoughts and feelings.
Play therapy is suitable for children between the ages of 3 and 12 years old.
