What is Play Therapy?

Play is the natural language of children. Play therapy provides a way for children, from the age 3 to 18, to express their emotions, experiences and feelings through a natural, guided process.

We use play to communicate with children and resolve psychosocial challenges by using a variety of techniques and play media such as doll´s houses, play dough, books, therapeutic board games, sandtrays, art and writing.

The objects and patterns of play can be used to understand the underlying rationale for children behaviour. According to the psychodynamic view, people (especially children) engage in play therapy in order to work through their interior difficulties and anxieties.
