Service description:
The British Association of Play Therapists is the first and foremost professional body for Play Therapists in the UK. We seek to promote our standards for Play Therapy practice and maintain a Voluntary Register of members who demonstrate that they have met our standards.

Play Therapy is a mode of therapy that helps children to explore their feelings, to express themselves and to make sense of their life experiences.

Who can benefit from Play Therapy?

-Children who have emotional or behavioural difficulties (e.g depression and/ or aggression) arising from their experiences.
-Children or young people who have been abused, neglected or traumatised
-Those who have experienced loss through bereavement, family breakdown or separation from culture or origin
-Children who are ill, disabled or who cope with carers or siblings with disabilities
-Those who have witnessed violence or the abuse of substances
Play Therapy is appropriate for young people of all ages, but is most often used for children aged between three and twelve emails.
