What is Play based Therapy?

Sometimes it is difficult to put our feelings into words even as grown-ups. For children it is even harder. Children communicate their feelings through play. Child centred play based therapy helps children understand muddled feelings and upsetting events.

The Association of Play Therapy defines Play therapy as “systematic use of a theoretical model to establish inter-personal process where the therapist use the therapeutic power of play to help clients prevent or resolve psycho-social difficulties and achieve optimal growth and development” (BAPT,2002).
