The Power Of Play Therapy

Exploring Emotions & Fostering Growth Through Play

At Chatter-Boxes, we know the power and strength that play therapy can give to children. By utilising play as a means of communication, children are empowered to build a range of skills and take charge of their therapeutic journey; allowing them a space to express, explore, and discover.

Play Tailored To Your Child

Our experienced play therapy team at Chatter-boxes is dedicated to creating a nurturing, safe, and supportive environment for children and their families.

We recognise that every child is different, requiring tailor-made sessions and therapeutic plans. Regular sessions give the child a chance to express their inner thoughts and feelings through a means of creativity and imaginative child-led play.

This includes imaginative play to act out fears and anxieties, sensory play as a soothing mechanism, or puppets to heal and problem-solve. Each child is different, so therapy will be tailored to their individual needs.

How Chatter-Boxes Can Help

Communicating Through the Language of Play

‘Birds Fly, Fish Swim, Children Play’ (Garry L. Landreth, 1991)

As parents, we know you want what is best for your children. Children learn to understand the world and their place in it through play. 

Working from a child-centered play therapy approach, play becomes the language in which the child can express their thoughts and difficulties and gain a sense of mastery and control in times when they may need it most.

Toys become symbolic and take on greater meaning, leading to good insight into the child’s struggles and can help guide them on a journey of self-discovery and growth.

The therapists at Chatterboxes have been amazing and life-changing for us."

Frequently Asked Questions

Have a question about play therapy or our individualised approach? We’ve answered some of the most commonly asked questions here.

Does my child need Play Therapy?

Deciding if your child needs Play Therapy depends on various factors. If you notice your little one having a bit of a tough time expressing emotions, navigating behaviours, making friends, or bouncing back from tough stuff, Play Therapy can be beneficial.

Play Therapy provides a safe outlet for children to express emotions, address challenges, enhance communication skills, build self-esteem, develop coping strategies, support social skills, and encourage emotional regulation. It utilises play as a therapeutic tool, allowing children to explore and navigate various aspects of their emotional and behavioural well-being in a natural and engaging way.

Every challenge and child is unique, which is why the duration of your child’s session will vary depending on their needs and goals. Following a comprehensive assessment, our therapists create a personalised treatment plan, where progress is regularly monitored.

A Play Therapy session at Chatter-Boxes is designed to be a safe and expressive space for your child. Sessions involve a variety of creative and play-based activities that allow children to explore and express their emotions. Our Play Therapists use age-appropriate techniques to address specific emotional and behavioural goals.
