Children do not easily talk to adults about their troubles. We provide a setting that allows children to safely express disturbing thoughts and feelings through play and are helped to understand and deal with them. We assist kids to learn healthy ways to express their thoughts and feelings, cultivate interpersonal skills to use with family, friends, and authority figures, cope with stressful life events, and develop self acceptance and empathy for others.
The relationship between child and therapist is very important. Children must feel comfortable, safe and understood. The therapist needs to provide emotional support to assist child to resolve conflicts, understand feelings and problems and try new solutions to old problems.
