What is Filial Therapy?
Filial therapy was developed in the early 1960s by Drs Bernard and Louise Guerney. It is a therapy that combines play therapy with family therapy and parenting skills.
I will teach parents how to hold "special play time"sessions at my office, so that they can conduct the special play time sessions at home. It is designed for children from 3 to around 12 years old.
Why "special play time sessions"
Special playtime is a way of playing with your child that helps you to enter your child's world. Children learn, process feelings and heal through play. By playing with them in this "special" way you give your children the opportunity to develop new mental and social skills and to express themselves. And on top of that it is fun!
