At Play Therapy Melbourne, our child psychologists, social workers and counsellors therapeutically use play to help children resolve their psychological, emotional and behavioural problems.
Child Centered Play Therapy is an evidenced based approach to child counselling that honours children’s developmental level and helps them work through difficulties in their ‘language’ – play. Children use play to work through their thoughts and feelings to achieve optimal growth and psychological healing.
