“Play is often talked about as if it were a break from serious learning. But, for children, play is serious learning. Play is really the work of childhood”~ FRED ROGERS
Dramatherapy uses the powerful combination of drama and psychotherapy to help individuals to explore, express and process psychological, social, emotional and behavioural difficulties.
Play Therapy is offered on an individual or small group basis for children between the ages of 3 and 12 years old. I work therapeutically from an integrative and holistic perspective which, integrates the therapeutic use of a wide range of creative arts media, which I call ‘the toolkit’.
Play is a child’s natural language and it is through their playful exploration that sense can begin to be made with regards to presenting difficulties.
According to current research* up to 83% of children receiving play therapy to Play Therapy UK’s (PTUK) standards reported positive change.
