10am - 1pm Monday to Friday
Involves a child attending regular sessions with the play therapist. The play therapy tool kit is used with the child as they play out their feelings and process stressful or upsetting experiences.
Skills that are focused on within the group are: Friendships and relationships, play skills, language development, communicating 1:1 and working in groups, teamwork, and turn taking…
Children in group therapy benefit from the overall support of their peers, as well as learning they are not the only one feelings a particular way or going through a particular experience. Group members together learn new skills of self- regulation and/or self expression. Children attending group therapy are grouped off together by referral issue of concern and who are at similar stages of development.
A safe environment is created which allows the child to play with as few limits as possible, while keeping them safe. This allows healing to occur on many levels, while also giving children a sense of control in their process. Through the use of play therapy, children are better able to cope with difficult emotional situations. By being able to process their feelings and fears, they will develop increased confidence as they feel more in control of their lives. This will provide an overall improved emotional well-being of the child.
