Hargan Psychology

Hargan Psychology provides child-centred play therapy whilst supporting parents and carers.

What is play therapy?

Child-Centred Play Therapy (CCPT) is a structured, theory-based approach.

Children often aren’t developmentally ready to verbally communicate their thoughts and feelings, particularly in relation to difficult situations. That’s where play therapy can help.

Our trained team of psychologists, use play therapy to help children express themselves and to gain insights about what may be troubling them. Examples of child therapy activities include:

  • Drawing, arts, and crafts.
  • Playing with lego and building blocks.
  • Board games.
  • Card games.

Why play therapy?

    • Behavioural challenges
