Play and Art Therapy
Evolving Minds: A Safe Space to Explore Emotions

At Evolving Minds therapeutic play serves as a structured and purposeful intervention, distinct from typical recreational play activities. Its primary goal is to provide children and adolescents with a safe and supportive environment to explore and express their emotions. Unlike traditional counselling, therapeutic play allows individuals to communicate and regulate their feelings through various forms of play, which can be less intimidating and more accessible for young clients.

The clinicians at Evolving Minds understand the importance of tailoring interventions to meet the unique needs of each client. Our approach takes into account the developmental stage and individual preferences of the child or adolescent.

 

Through engaging in play and creative activities such as art, storytelling, and role-playing, clients at Evolving Minds are encouraged to express themselves, build emotional resilience, and develop essential coping skills.

Therapeutic play also serves as a platform for learning and growth. It provides opportunities to acquire new skills, enhance self-awareness, and improve communication. It can effectively address a wide range of concerns, including anxiety, depression, grief, family conflict, school difficulties, bullying, and social skill deficits.

At Evolving Minds, we integrate theraplay-informed practices, which is an attachment based therapy that emphasises the importance of building strong, nurturing relationships. We aim to create a therapeutic environment where children and adolescents feel understood, valued, and empowered to explore and overcome challenges.
