What is play therapy?
Play therapy is non-verbal counselling and intervention, for young children, adolescents and adults. Play therapy involves play, sand play, music and arts and crafts to create a safe environment. By using play as a form of communication children/young adults are comfortably able to confront their social, behavioural and emotional problems.
