Child therapy

Play therapy is most commonly used to assist child clients, however would be carefully individualized to the needs and level of emotional maturity of the child.

Children aged 2-12 years can attend play therapy. We also have a psychologist who does parent-infant sessions for caregivers and babies (aged 0-2 years).

 

To ensure this, at least one initial session is spent with the caregivers to obtain an in-depth understanding of the child’s history and the presenting problem.

As children often do not have the means to verbally express their thoughts and feelings, play therapy has been found as an effective tool to help them do so. This is also then used to help the child process difficult experiences or traumas and learn more effective coping skills.

 

It is essential that there are also regular sessions with the child's caregivers to assist them in understanding their child's functioning and finding ways to support their child optimally.
