Play Therapy

Play Therapy 


We have a qualified Play Therapist working in school once a week. Play Therapy is all about building a therapeutic relationship using ‘play and creative arts’ to help the pupil to communicate and process difficult feelings and emotions. The aim of play therapy being to decrease any behavioural and emotional difficulties that interfere significantly with a child's normal functioning, Less obvious goals include improved verbal expression, ability for self-observation, improved impulse control, more adaptive ways of coping with anxiety and frustration, and improved capacity to trust and to relate to others.
