Play therapy is a type of counselling that allows children to transcend traditional language barriers to be able to communicate through toys and actions. It is most effective with children aged 2-10 years old.
Play is the natural language of children and toys can be their words. Through toys, art materials and other objects in the playroom, children can express their thoughts and feelings, explore relationships, and share their experiences. The play therapist may join in play direction or request the child via direct play to address specific issues.
