Counselling is a process in which a person works closely with a counsellor on issues that may be causing distress in their lives. Counselling provides an opportunity to talk about problems and feelings, in an environment which is safe and confidential.
Counselling can help with problems like:
• Major life events
• Physical illness
• Sexual, physical and emotional abuse.
Counselling helps a person to explore what is going on and to make sense of their confusion so they can reach their own decisions.
We work with couples and individuals to provide a safe environment where spouses and partners can express thoughts and feelings, that may be very difficult to express in the home or may lead to conflict and further difficulties at home, in a calm, measured and safe environment.
This can lead to spouses and partners gaining further understanding of themselves, their spouse and partner, and their situation, which can in turn lead to better communication, an improved relationship and better management of existing difficulties and those that may arise in the future.
“In Play Therapy, toys are like the child’s words and play is the child’s Language “(Landreth, 2002)
Play Therapy helps children understand confused feelings and upsetting events. Play Therapy assists children work through emotional, social and behavioural difficulties and also helps address family problems.
It uses the medium of play, rather than talking to help the child learn to express themselves, explore and make sense of the world in which they live in, resolve difficulties and achieve more mature levels of social and emotional development.
Play Therapy is suitable for 3- to 12-year-old, parents/carers will need to attend firstly for assessment and then the child will attend for their play sessions. Each session happens at the same time each week and regular attendance will be very important. Sessions will be 50/60 mins.
Play therapy will help with the following:
Adoption or Foster care
Disruption in attachment relationships
Persistent Anger, worry, sadness or fear which hinders the daily life of the child
Low Self Esteem
Bed wetting/soiling problems
