Play and Creative Arts Therapy is a non-directive approach to provide children as well as Young teenagers with a non-judgmental, confidential, therapeutic space in which to explore their often-unconscious feelings and emotions.
Time to blossom play and Creative Arts therapy is an opportunity for children to have their own space to discover and deal with their feelings and emotions and learn more about themselves. It is a place to realise that as trees changing is part of life, that they also have the potential to change. With this realisation Play Therapy will give them the opportunity to build an inner strength and resilience to cope with life’s challenges as well as to enable them to have an open mind and a hope to reach for who they can and want to be.
I like to develop a trusting relationship with your child as they use the varied resources in the room which help them face some things that are going on in their life as well as gain a different perspective and develop more inner strength and resilience to cope.
Play and Creative Arts therapy can help them to become calmer, less angry and aggressive or less withdrawn and more able to express and talk about their feelings and become more confident in who they are and therefore also develop better ways of relating to others.
