Play and Art in Therapy
PLEASE NOT I AM NOT CURRENTLY WORKING WITH CHILDREN UNDER 13 DUE TO COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS
Younger children naturally make sense of their world using play and the arts, as such this can be an excellent form of communication for working with younger children. Sometimes children do not have the vocabulary to talk about how they are feeling or what is happening for them or they may not understand or be able to verbalise their feelings. Using the metaphor within the arts and play can help me to communicate effectively with your child in a way that they can understand. Using art and play therapeutically can also help to build self esteem and tackle social situations younger children may find difficult.
