Play Therapy Base offers 45-50 minute consult sessions to parents/carers who are seeking support with managing their child’s distress and emotional wellbeing. Therapists will support parents/carers to reflect on their child’s use of play materials to communicate their thoughts and feelings.
Parents/carers can use the consult sessions to explore interactions and responses to day to day parenting challenges, events or experiences. They are supported to reflect on the strengths in the relationships while given strategies using play and play materials to support relational connections and communication with their children.
School staff have used consults sessions to explore in a group or as individuals practice based approaches using play and play materials while taking time to think about specific children’s needs and experiences.
