What are your service's frequently asked questions and
Q:I have tried many things for my child how can Play
Therapy help?
A:Play Therapy is a way of helping children express their feelings and deal with their emotional problems using play as the main communication tool. To relieve the
needs children, young people and adults suffering
emotional and behavioural difficulties by promoting the
art and science of Play Therapy and promoting high
standards in the practice of Play Therapy for the public

Play is essential to every child's language, social,
emotional, physical, cognitive and creative development. It contributes towards concrete learning for all children and young people including individuals who find verbal communication challenging. Play Therapy is a process that allows the child to explore any issues past and present that are currently affecting a child's life. It is hoped that the child's own resources if accessed during Play Therapy will enable growth and change in the individual. During the process play is the primary medium and speech is secondary.

A: The service is dedicated to ensuring that any
individual is able to access the support they need
in spite of cost.

Q: How long will it take?
A: This varies and depends on the individual. Each
intervention is person-centered and moves at a pace
that feels right for each person.
