Play Therapy

Play. Learn. Heal.

Forever Colours Children’s Hospice knows that play is the way in which children lean and develop, it is where they can make sense of the world around them, it helps children to express themselves, explore their thoughts and feelings, and make sense of their life experiences.

Play is a natural activity of learning, exploration and communication for children. The team at Forever Colours recognises the importance of play and how vital it is to our children, but understand it can be something that gets de-prioritised for our families in their busy days.

Our play sessions aim to equip children with adaptive behaviours and better coping mechanisms for everyday life, and  promote resilience and confidence within each child. Not only does this type of therapy address emotional, social and practical needs it also supports the child’s development – helping to shape key emotional, cognitive and physical processes.

The team has over 20 years experience working with children and offer children a safe and comfortable space in which the children can be themselves and express their feelings freely. The play sessions have been highly effective in supporting  children to ‘play out’ what they may find difficult to put into words, which in turn helps support the whole family and their communication.
