Group Play Therapy
Group Play Therapy can be arranged within schools. Small groups of children with similar difficulties grow together through semi structured activities all within safe and warm environment provided by the therapist. The therapist is trained to give sensitive and effective support to children and allow for group dynamics to organically evolve leading to further healing opportunities.
Groups are organised according to their common experiences or current issues. Individuals are also sensitively selected on other background factors such as age, gender and severity of difficulties.
A course of group Play Therapy is typically 6 weekly sessions that last 40 minutes and up (depending on the children's ages & needs).
Popular Play Therapy group focuses are:
- Coping with bereavement
- Dealing with divorce
- Managing anxiety
- Improving peer relationships
- Soothing post traumatic stress
- Witnessing domestic violence and abuse.
- Adjusting after relocation
- Accepting a new sibling in the family
School counsellors can arrange on site therapeutic groups to benefit their students. Please enquire for availability.
Parents can register an interest in one of these groups and we will keep you informed about availability.
