The Power of Play

Play Therapy Counselling

We understand that living with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) can be a challenge. We know that ADHD can impact all areas of life, from work and school to personal relationships and self-esteem. That’s why we’re here to help. Our team of experienced therapists can provide the support and guidance you need to manage your symptoms and live a fulfilling life.

The Power of Play Therapy

Play is the language of children, it offers a unique pathway to connect with our inner child. Play therapy harnesses the natural inclination of individuals to play and express themselves creatively, enabling them to navigate through emotional challenges, trauma, and personal growth in a holistic and non-threatening manner.

Our approach is tailored to meet your specific needs. Your team of highly trained therapists utilize a variety of evidence-based play therapy techniques, combining elements of art, music, storytelling, sand tray, and other expressive modalities to create a therapeutic journey that feels safe, engaging, and empowering.

We believe in the power of personalized care. We recognize that every child is unique, with their own set of experiences, strengths, and challenges. Your therapist will work closely with you to develop a tailored treatment plan that addresses your specific needs and goals along with your child. Through play therapy techniques, your child will be empowered to navigate difficult emotions, build resilience, and discover new strategies for personal growth.

Confidentiality is of utmost importance to us. We provide a safe and non-judgmental space where you can express yourself freely, knowing that your privacy is respected, and you’ll work with the therapist to find the level of confidentiality between you and your child.
