Play Therapy for Children

Identify Your Children's Needs, Give Them Tools to Build Confidence, and Help Them Communicate and Grow

Children Don’t Always Have the Right Tools to Communicate Distress…

Play Therapy is a process that helps children understand and cope with emotional stress or trauma in their lives. This method, through play, gives them the ability to communicate their experience on a level that is age appropriate and with language and items that they relate to best. With a therapist’s guidance, a child can play out hidden feelings and fears, identify them and begin to cope. At South Charlott Family Counseling, PLLC our goal is to expose this process for the parent and equip your child with the skills to verbalize their thoughts, feelings, fears, and needs: To claim their voice!

Benefits of Play Therapy:

  • Identification and articulation of the child’s current needs.
  • Recognition of meaning child has internalized from an event.
  • Emotional language to support child with better communication: Emotional Intelligence
  • Peace of mind for the parent who is bewildered with not understanding their child’s negative behaviors.
  • Elimination of destructive emotions and behaviors
  • Development and practice of healthy problem solving, decision-making, and coping skills.
  • Self-confidence, happiness and a return to age-appropriate behaviors and attitudes.
