Every child is unique and is full of potential. Sometimes they need help discovering this for themselves. At Newcastle Play Therapy, we specialise in allowing children to use play as their preferred method of communication. Through both Child Centred and Directed Play Therapy, research has proven that children can learn to play out their feelings, problem solve and improve their social skills. 

We aim to help children process their thoughts and feelings through play.
