Play therapy helps children understand and process their feelings and past experiences
Creative Rumpus works in a non-directive and child-lead way, allowing each child to use the safe space in their own way, at their own pace.
Art materials, musical instruments, puppets, dressing up items and many toys are available so that a child can explore and express their thoughts and feelings.
Creative Rumpus provides a warm, safe and secure environment.
Observations and reflections are shared with the child - thus providing support and encouragement enabling each child to gain an awareness of their emotions and sense of self. Creative Rumpus aims to support and encourage every child to learn more about themselves and offer containment for their intense emotional needs and their concerns.
If children are given this opportunity to explore their emotions or memories they can develop a stronger understanding of self, and a better understanding of their world around them. Play therapy empowers children to cope with problems in their lives and increase their self esteem.
