"We hurt because of relationships; therefore, we heal through relationships" is one of the countless beliefs that guide my practice. Through a person-centered approach I welcome you or your child into the therapy room where a safe space is held to feel and explore hurtful or traumatic experiences from your life. Everyone deserves to live a life that is not dictated or controlled by their past. I recognize that in order for this or occur, people need to be seen and heard and their experiences validated. This includes children, adolescents, their parents, and adults.

Play Therapy
Generally for children ages 3 to 11, play therapy is a form of counseling 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 York or for a York play therapist, 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 and play counselors.
