How long will play therapy last for?
This depends on your child as play therapy is led by their process. Ideally, a commitment to a minimum of 12 sessions is preferable to fully engage with the therapy.
How will I know it is working?
When we meet together we will think about some realistic targets and outcomes for the therapy. I will also carry out some assessments at the start and end of the therapy to help monitor for signs of change during the therapy. I am also happy to incorporate any assessment measures preferred by the placement.
You might see changes or shifts at home and other adults, such as teachers may also comment on changes they have observed.
We will meet together regularly to review their progress and at the end of the therapy to discuss the outcomes and to plan for any further support.
