Theraplay is a ‘hands on’ model of family therapy. The parent/carer is involved directly in sessions with their child and their therapist. Each session is filled with a variety of short games and activities chosen to give the child experiences of structure, engagement, nurture and challenge.
During an assessment which takes place before the therapy sessions begin, the specific needs of your child will be identified.
The Theraplay informed sessions will then be specifically tailored according to the needs identified. This kind of therapeutic work is designed to revisit the positive experiences babies and young children ideally experience with their key carers, this intervention is therefore particularly appropriate for children who have missed out on some of those really important early relationship experiences and interactions.
