What is Play therapy? Play therapy is where I help a child make sense of difficult life experiences through the activity of play.
Do you have concerns regarding yourself or a family member? Has your child's school expressed concern regarding his or her behavior? Has there been a family separation, divorce, abuse history or other reason for you or your child to be feeling anxious or depressed? My goal as a therapist is to help a client address thought processes, feelings and behavior, understand inner conflicts, and find new ways to cope with, and alleviate distress. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor and have worked for many years in both school and community mental health settings utilizing various forms of therapy.

Psychotherapy can be a powerful tool of transformation, and an opportunity to gain a better handle on the sources of suffering in one's life. This process can take many forms, whether it's finding new ways of thinking and responding in the moment, gaining freedom from past influences, deepening self-understanding and self-acceptance, or finding creative and concrete solutions. I honor the depth and complexity of every client's unique personality, and put great care into listening deeply, asking the right questions, and creating a relaxed therapeutic atmosphere characterized by honesty, open-mindedness, and non-judgmental curiosity.

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 Bristol or for a Bristol 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.
