Play Therapy


Most children lack the vocabulary and abstract reasoning to verbalise and make sense of the emotional difficulties they are going through; and for some, childhood can be a harrowing experience, fraught with bullies, rejection from peers, teasing, and sometimes in conjunction with conflict at home.

Because they are ill-equipped to express themselves in words, in therapy they are provided with a sand-tray and toys where play becomes their language of expression.

Moreover, a series of projective techniques are employed through which the child can give “voice” to his or her problematical experiences. Typically, parents and teachers are involved in the process, as this facilitates a more effective resolution of the presenting problem.
