Play Therapy

Play therapy is a therapeutic intervention specifically designed for children who may find it challenging to communicate their thoughts and emotions verbally. Through the language of play, children can express themselves, explore their feelings, and make sense of their experiences. Here at Bridges Therapy Centre in Hendon and Canary Wharf, our experienced therapists create a safe and supportive environment where children can engage in various play activities tailored to their unique needs.

How Does Play Therapy Work?

Play therapy operates on the principle that play is a natural medium for children to communicate. Our skilled therapists use a range of techniques, including art, games, and imaginative play, to help children express and process their emotions. By engaging in these activities, children can work through their issues, develop coping mechanisms, and build resilience.

Which Issues Can Play Therapy Help With?

Play therapy is beneficial for children facing a variety of challenges, including early childhood anxiety, trauma, behavioural issues, separation anxiety, and social difficulties. It is particularly effective for children aged 3 to 12 years old, as they may not have the verbal skills to articulate their feelings as adults do. Play therapy provides a safe space for them to communicate and work through their emotions in a developmentally appropriate way.
