Why choose Treasure chest Play Therapy

At treasure chest play therapy, we adopt holistic approach to our work and liaise with external agencies and families to support the overall wellbeing of the child.

we provide a creative and non-threatening environment for your child/ren to express themselves and make sense of their experiences.

At treasure chest play therapy value “the closing of a process” as much as “the beginning” of a process.

Play therapy is a form of therapy that helps children express and communicate their emotions through play. Play therapists utilize various types of play materials, toys, and activities to facilitate exploration and understanding of feelings, experiences, and behaviours in a safe and supportive environment.
