Play therapy is a form of therapy where a trained therapist will help a child to overcome some kind of challenge. Everything about playing is dictated by the child, this helps them to relax and to open up to the therapist. this creates a comfortable environment for them to express their feelings and to grow into healthier behaviors. As the treatment progresses, the therapist will determine how directive they will be in the child’s play. The idea is to create a safe and supportive environment for the child to feel comfortable enough in to open up.
Get your happy kid back.
Kids don’t always have a great home growing up or even in their first few years. That could be due to outside circumstances or something else that caused disruption in their life. Whatever happened, they might be defensive or aggressive or moody. Play therapy can help them process their feelings in a safe environment. Through this process, it helps kids to be kids again. Every kid is different, but play therapy has been proven to make a tremendous impact on children.
