Child-led Play Therapy

During these sessions, your child will have the opportunity to talk about any feelings that are coming up for them and also be able to play their way through their “problems”. Often children find it easier to express what they are feeling through play which then gives them the ability to communicate how they are feeling and also what they need. Play and creating gives them the chance to feel safe enough to feel the big feelings, name them and move through them with love, acceptance and connection. The idea of "joining” into their world also allows them to feel safe enough in the world to communicate and connect with others, something that isn’t always easy for sensitive children who are in tune with the energies around them. Play is a beautiful way for them to feel safe enough in their environment, activate their parasympathetic nervous system to heal, taking them from a state of "fight or flight" to "stay and play".

 

Think of a time when you were so engaged with what you were doing and so happy that you forgot about time or anything else? This feeling is what allows our bodies to heal because our focus is no longer on what we don’t have or don’t want and instead is focused on what we do. In these sessions, your child may spend time dancing, singing, playing with toys, doing yoga, meditating, drawing/colouring/creating, reading, journaling or simply visualizing what they love to do. The focus is on letting the children lead and doing what makes them so happy that whatever is in need of healing happens, while allowing the child to learn and grow in a way that feels FUN!
