Often children cannot find words to describe their distress. Creative therapy provides a way of expression, which is non-verbal, and can prove to be a powerful therapeutic tool. Play is the natural, instinctive means through which all children learn, communicate and explore their worlds and gain a sense of identity. Play therapy enables children to express their feelings, thoughts and beliefs surrounding difficult life experiences. Children often feel powerless to put changes in for themselves and therapy allows them to express their concerns in a safe contained way. Children want to be understood by their parents and caregivers and through carefully working with the child to help remove worries, a united dialogue can be had within the family.
