Art and Play Therapy can be used with people of all ages and can be particularly helpful for people who find talking therapy difficult. At Inner West Art and Play Therapy we believe that the problems people experience which lead them to look for a counsellor are the ‘tip of the iceberg’, and, like an iceberg, there is always more beneath the surface. We take the time to talk with you to understand your concerns and to develop a personalised treatment plan linked to identified goals. We combine talking therapy with expressive mediums in order to enhance the therapy experience and get the best outcomes for you and your child.
