Allowing Children to Express their  Inner world through play therapy 

Play is a child's natural medium of expression. Play therapy offers children a chance to "play - out" their feelings and difficulties in a natural and familiar manner. The therapeutic play offers children mastery over their emotions and this is where we begin to see shifts in a child's behaviour. We are not here to "fix" any problems but to make the child more visible to him / her self and in doing so  the child will feel heard and seen. Growth is optimal in play when a feeling of permissiveness is present in a trusted, safe relationship.
