Play Therapy

I specialise in rendering supportive therapeutic services to young children with emotional and behavioural challenges. I use play-based therapy techniques to create a non-threatening and safe environment where in children can express feelings, learn coping mechanisms and work through trauma events, difficult life events and overwhelming emotions, including anxiety etc.

Play based counselling / play therapy helps children to:

  • Express a wide range of feelings
  • Express real life experiences
  • Express fears / thoughts / wishes
  • Assist with reality testing of limits
  • Develop a positive self-image
  • Develop self-understanding
  • Improve low self-esteem
  • Give them the opportunity to develop self-control
  • Work on problem solving and decision making skills
