Preparing your child

for Play Therapy

Like anything new in life, preparation is the key to success. Preparing your child for Play Therapy will aid their success. Tell them about the things your saw in the Play Room when you did your intake, show them pictures of the room so they know what to expect. They need your reassurance.

Here are a few other tips to make sure you are ready

for each session your child attends:

* Be on time. Allow yourself time to travel as traffic can cause stress for both you and the child. 

* Make sure your child has had a drink, a snack and gone to the toilet. Food and drink is strictly prohibited in the Play Room.

* Be conscious of the fact that kids can be fearful of new experiences and sometimes they may not want to go even though they have enjoyed going previously.

* New Lambton has many great cafes and shops so feel free to go for a walk but please be mindful of the time make sure you are back to collect your child promptly after their session.
