Play Therapy

Play Therapy is a non-directive method of therapy that helps children communicate their inner experiences through the use of not only toys and props but also art materials, musical instruments and the medium of sand. An essential component of this is the therapeutic relationship and a safe environment. Conventional talking therapies may not be appropriate for children and young people who struggle to describe complex feelings.

Play Therapy works on supporting children to develop confidence and positive self-esteem find healthier ways of communicating and can promote resilience and coping, in ways that are appropriate to their age and developmental stages.



Our Mile End studio is set up specifically to provide spaces where your child can feel supported and safe to work on challenges.

Studio based therapy provides a range of therapeutic rooms which can cater to sensory needs and various activities depending on a young person's motivation and body's needs.

Running Students


School visits are helpful in understanding a child's experience at school. They assist in working on environment specific influences of regulation and assist working on  participation and social and emotional goals within a school setting. We are able to collaborate with teachers and other allied health. It allows us to work closely with facilitators to ensure that they understand your child's specific needs in their education setting.
