Who can Play Therapy SA help?


Play Therapy can help in many ways for many kids.


For those who have been diagnosed with:

  • Autism

  • ADHD

  • AuDHD

  • Global development delay

  • Cerebral Palsy

  • Down Syndrome

  • Other diagnosis not listed here

      (If your child can play then give Play Therapy a go!)

Or those going through difficulties associated with:

  • Low self-esteem and self-confidence

  • School and social difficulties

  • Selective mutism

  • Trauma or attachment issues

  • Adoption and fostering

  • Divorce and separation

  • Anxiety and depression

  • Grief and loss

  • Angry and aggressive behaviours

  • Chronic illness

  • Bullying

  • Sexual or physical abuse

  • Gender variance

  • Sleep

A child’s natural mode of learning and expression is often play. While adults may use counselling to help them through difficulties, children can struggle with talk-based methods while their cognitive abilities and verbal skills are developing. Play Therapy recognises the healing potential in play.


Our main focus is CCPT but we are trained in other approaches of Play Therapy too. Theraplay, Autplay Therapy, Sandtray Therapy, and Child-Parent Relationship Therapy (CPRT) are some of our favourites! Check out our new addition - Art Therapy!
