Play Therapy - Anne Brennan

Play Therapy is a method of therapy that helps children understand painful experiences and upsetting feelings. Through play, children can communicate at their own level without having to put it into words. Play allows the child to express needs, fears and wishes. It also helps them to address emotional and behavioural difficulties.
