A lot of time, our first instinct is to seek support when we may feel we are drowning in our current struggles. The first step is always the hardest, in where we fear we will not be understood. My belief is that because each one of us is unique, our struggles and thus our journey in healing will be too. I aim to be an anchor in these turbulent times and be a beacon of unfiltered, unconditional and non-judgemental space in exploring our internal processes. In collaboration, we can address motivational, acceptance, behavioural, cognitive, social, biological and cultural aspects that can work in tandem in maintaining our struggles.

Children and youth often experience strong emotions (anxiety, sadness, anger, fear) that are the roots of their behavioral challenges, self- and emotion disregulation, and other adjustment issues. These issues negatively impact their quality of life. Through play and art therapy, I facilitate and witness the unfolding of children's lived experiences. I help them to explore and express their thoughts, emotions and memories that may not be easily expressed using words. Through interacting with their personal symbols in the play or their art, children gain self-acceptance which is the bridge to healing the inner pain and trauma.

I use play and art to facilitate my counselling approach with children. I focus on teaching children coping skills to manage intense emotions. Many children struggle to allow space for both positive and negative emotions. Some people find it difficult to feel any positive emotion such as joy or excitement and others find it difficult to sit with negative emotion such as anxiety or sadness. The reality is, it’s healthiest to be able to feel a broad range of emotions, including the positive and negative.

Play Therapy Counsellors
Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counselling that relies on play to help therapists communicate with children and understand their mental health. Because children develop cognitive skills before language skills, play is an effective way to understand a child. The therapist may observe a child playing with toys--such as playhouses and dolls--to understand the child's behavior and identify issues.

If you're looking for play therapy in M4R or for a M4R play therapy counsellor, these professionals provide play therapy, play therapy children, child play therapy, play therapy for children, sandplay therapy, family play therapy and group play therapy. They include play therapists, play psychologists, play psychotherapists in M4R, and play counsellors.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in M4R are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in M4R you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in M4R and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in M4R or family therapy in M4R.
