Our Play Therapy Room
Meets international standard
Children are provided with 3 types of toys to help them deal with emotional, behavioural, social and concentration problems.
Play is the most natural way for children to communicate, and toys become their vocabulary (Axline, 1969; Landreth, 1991)
When to seek help?
When children encounter emotional problems or frustrations, they do not have enough vocabulary or insight like adults to directly express their troubles or concerns. Children often show different behavioural or social problems, such as being less obedient than usual, withdrawing, loss of appetite, physical discomfort, or nightmares. If parents notice any of the above, you need to seek help from a play therapist.
Child-Centered as principle
Acceptance, empathy, and safety are 3 growth-promoting elements for children.
Self-responsibility, self-esteem, and self-confidence are some examples of the goals of play therapy.
