Play Therapy

Play Therapy can help children to understand confusing feelings and upsetting events. Rather than having to explain what is troubling them, play therapy allows children to use play rather than talk to communicate their feelings.

Play Therapy is non-directive and our fully qualified play therapist will meet with the child on a weekly basis in our dedicated Play Therapy room here at St Margaret’s Therapy Centre in Glasgow. We will also consider providing Play Therapy within your school setting should this be appropriate.

Play Therapy can help children with the following issues:

  • Abuse
  • Trauma
  • Loss and separation
  • Disability
  • Autism
  • Challenging behaviour
  • Domestic violence
  • Parental drug and alcohol use

The outcomes of therapy will vary and can include:

  • Better understanding of emotions
  • Reduced anxiety
  • Raised self-esteem and confidence
  • Improved social skills and relationships with family, friends and others
  • Better progress in school and nursery.
