What is Therapy Like for Children?
Children don’t often share their emotions as an adult would in the therapy setting. Our therapists are trained to interact with your child in a way that meets their unique emotional needs.
Play therapy is used as a tool to help children express and work through their struggles. Play therapy creates a safe and empathetic atmosphere where children can express themselves, try new things, understand their emotions, and build self-esteem. Play therapy gives children an opportunity to explore and open up.
Depending on the child’s preferences, a variety of games, toys, sand, and art supplies are used in order to help the child to express their emotional concerns.
These concerns may include:
- Anxiety (including phobias, selective mutism, bedtime worry, and school anxiety)
- Parental divorce
- Behavioral struggles
- School issues
HeartLife therapists have the experience to bring hope and relief to the heart of the child by utilizing a Christian foundation and perspective.
