Play Therapy For Anxiety
Play is the highest form of research
When the child is introduced to the play therapy room it is explained that he or she completely makes all of their own decisions. During this process I am fully present showing great respect and validation for all of the expressed feelings, desires, decisions and needs. This gives a child a great sense of control over their life and destiny, leading them to think, “I don’t have to be anxious that things are not going to turn out well. I have the power to make things go the way I want and need, to make things go right!” In this way, the anxiety is reduced instantly.
