Therapeutic Play in a nutshell

Playing is a child’s natural medium of self-expression and is essential for development.
Some children need support in their emotional growth, others may have behavioral or mental health problems that prevent them from fulfilling their own potential.

Therapeutic Play offers children the opportunity to play out their feelings and emotions and demonstrate their thoughts and difficulties through an expressive and creative tool-kit.

The tool-kit includes:

  • Art
  • Music
  • Sand-Play
  • Drama
  • Puppets
  • Movement
  • Creative Visualization
  • Storytelling

A therapeutic SPECIAL TIME is created with the facilitation of the therapist; a safe, confidential, caring environment will be established. This allows the child to work on his or her issues toward a resolution, healing and growth.
