If a child begins to change in personality, or begins to have outbursts of emotions, or goes within themselves, withdrawing from activities or friends, this can be a sign that something is bothering them in their life. Children communicate through actions, so introducing play therapy can help children feel less troubled with muddled feelings they have inside.
With adults we talk in therapy and bring about change, but children cannot always tell you how they feel, or what is making them feel this way. All they are aware of is the distressed emotions that bubble inside, making them angry, tearful, anxious, quiet, and many other different emotions that they cannot control.
Play therapy allows children to express themselves freely in a natural way without being interrogated, making sense and untangling what they feel inside. They will have the emotional support of the therapist, which will bring about confidence to with stand their anxieties, bringing change.
