“Enter into children’s play and you will find the place where their minds, hearts, and souls meet.” – Virginia Axline
Hello and welcome to Handsonplaytherapy!
As adults, we understand how difficult it can be to get on with the simplest of tasks when we are under stress or have something on our minds. But as adults, we recognise this and can seek support to talk through our problems. Children, however, don't have the same understanding of the world and their emotions. Talking therapies will not always work with children while Play Therapy provides the opportunity for them to work through their difficulties in a more age-appropriate and natural way.
Through Play Therapy, children are able to explore new positive coping strategies and build their resilience levels in a safe, therapeutic environment.
Please continue to look through the website to find out more about the services I offer and see how I can support a child you may be thinking of.
