Introduction to Play Therapy

Clinical Training Program

Advanced Clinical Workshop


The training I received through the Centre for Play Therapy has been inspiring. I am now confident in my sessions with children to utilize a non-directive style of therapy that really speaks to the holistic nature of a child’s own intrinsic way of healing. The passion of the team and the structure of the content gave me all the energy and tools I required to begin my new journey as a play therapist.
