Welcome To Love This Therapy: Play Therapy

Play Therapy In Surrey, BC

As you navigate the complex world of counselling, it’s crucial to remember that children have their own unique ways of understanding and exploring their feelings. One approach that speaks their language is Play Therapy. We’re here to introduce you to this gentle, yet powerful method in an easy-to-understand manner.

What Is Play Therapy?

Play Therapy is a form of counselling that uses play to help children aged 3-12 to express what is troubling them when they do not have the verbal language to express their thoughts and feelings. In Play Therapy, toys are like the child’s words and play is the child’s language. In our clinic we work with children ages 5+.

How Does It Work?

In a safe, confidential, and caring environment, play therapists use a variety of play and creative arts techniques to alleviate chronic, mild, and moderate psychological and emotional conditions in children.

The therapist may help the child to explore life events that may have an effect on their current circumstances, in a manner and pace that the child can comfortably handle. This can lead to emotional regulation, a sense of safety and understanding, healthier decision-making, enhanced self-esteem, and better family relationships.
