A Play Therapist is someone who is specially trained to help children who have some kind of difficulty or issue in their lives. The job of a play therapist is to help children who are hurting on the inside make their hurt a little less painful. Because we play to do this, a play therapist is able to help children to understand their feelings a bit better. Children’s problems can feel smaller when they understand themselves better and can cope with what life brings. It might take a little while, but in the end children will feel ready to be able to manage on their own.
