About Us

“The relationship between the child and the therapist is the vehicle for dynamic growth and healing. The power of play itself helps produce the change."

- Baratton and Ray, (2022, p370)

Our Mission and Objectives

Our mission is to honour the whole child and provide an inclusive and dynamic Play Therapy service that enables children to reach their fullest potential and fosters love and hope for the child and their families.

Our objectives are to:

  • Provide a safe environment where each child feels accepted, supported and encouraged to express themself;
  • Strive to prevent and heal emotional and psychologican difficulties using the therapeutic powers of play;
  • Use an integrative therapeutic approach that supports the cultural background, needs and strengths of each child;
  • Bring the values of Play Therapy to children and their families.

When and where the heart and the soul of the therapist meets the child’s healing happens! The relationship between the child and the therapist as the vehicle for dynamic growth and healing. The power of play itself helps produce the change. The power of the therapeutic medium and the process itself helps lead the growth (Virginia Axline, Drewes & Schaefer, Baratton & Ray, 2022, p370, Eileen and Judi 2021, p4).
