Welcome to Bear in Mind
A child’s Mental Health is fragile, and can easily be broken. Play Therapy can help a child to voice their emotions.
Play Therapy utilizes play, a child’s natural medium of expression, to help them express their feelings with less difficulty through toys instead of words. It is a therapeutic method of psychotherapy for children aged 3 and up.
Play Therapy uses an assortment of play and creative arts techniques to work through some chronic, mild and moderate psychological and emotional conditions and issues in children that are causing behavioural problems and/or are preventing children from realising their full potential or from fitting in,
As a Play Therapist, I support and facilitate a child and provide a safe environment for them to express their experiences and feelings through a natural, self-guided, self-healing process.
Play helps a child develop a sense of control over their innate abilities resulting to a sense of worth and ability. During play, children are driven to meet the essential need of exploring and understanding their environment.
Many children need mental and emotional support during their formative years, to resolve, work through and process issues which they may come across at home, in school or in the outside world.
At Bear in Mind, we create a warm friendly space for them to “play out” their feelings and emotions and the space to work through their problems. When children attend play therapy they experience something quite different. They have a 45 minute session of undivided attention, they may not speak during the session but they uses the toys as their words.
We offer a safe environment and create a trusting non-judgemental relationship between therapist and child. Allowing the child the freedom to express themselves.
Within our purpose build space, we use a variety of resources, including art, clay, storying telling, puppets, music, sand trays and much more.
We have created a wonderful safe space in “the playroom” which is fully equipped with all the resources needed and close to hand, creating a safe, non-judgemental space, where the child is comfortable enough to allow themselves to say and do what they want and still feel accepted.
Children attend play therapy for many reasons, sometimes they will attend for only a short period of 12 weeks while others may attend for longer periods sometimes even years.
