Our therapy approaches
Learn to Play Therapy
Suitable for children from 18 months to 10 years of age. Learn to Play Therapy aims to increase a child’s ability to spontaneously engage in pretend play. This can help increase social skills, increase emotional understanding and regulation, increase a child’s language and problem-solving skills and lead to greater joy in play.
Child-Centred Play Therapy
Suitable for children from 3 to 12 years of age. Child-Centred Play Therapy is a non-directive approach, where the child leads the play and is able to explore a range of social, emotional and behavioural difficulties, in the context of a trusting therapeutic relationship with the therapist.
Integrative Play Therapy
Suitable for children from 3-12 years old. Integrative Play Therapy uses a mix of directive and non-directive interventions to develop a trusting therapeutic relationship and to work through social, emotional and behavioural difficulties.
Filial Therapy is a family-based play therapy whereby the therapist teaches the play therapy skills to the parents/caregivers and then supervises them in the use of these skills with their child. This can lead to stronger family relationships, consistency in parenting approaches and allow the child space to explore and communicate through their play.
