Play Therapy in Newcastle
Play Therapy Newcastle
Play therapy is a highly effective and engaging therapeutic approach used in clinical psychology to help children to explore their emotions, thoughts, and feelings in a safe and supportive environment.
Through the use of various play materials and techniques, this form of therapy encourages individuals to express themselves, resolve conflicts, and develop essential life skills. It is particularly beneficial for addressing a wide range of emotional and behavioural challenges.
At Newcastle Psychologist & Counselling our specialist play therapists in Newcastle help children to explore their inner world, address various challenges, and build essential life skills, all through creative and interactive play.

Our team can also help support your child in developing strategies to deal with problems that might be due to conditions such as autism, ADHD and other conditions.
How Play Therapy Works
Our play therapists in Newcastle create a safe and non-judgmental space, where children can express themselves through play, as words can sometimes be limiting, especially for children.
During this time, the therapist observes and interacts with the child, often using play as a medium to gain insights into their inner world. Through play, children can explore their emotions, identify solutions to problems, and develop healthier coping mechanisms.
