Hi, I’m Orlaith Dignam, a qualified Play Therapist here at Crann.
If there’s anything I know to be true, it’s that parents and carers like you have a lot on your plate. Engaging, effective and able to lighten some of your load – our play therapy is designed to help children process their emotions through the act of play.
Play Therapy is a mode of therapy that helps children understand painful experiences and upsetting feelings. As play is a child’s natural form of expression, it can allow them to communicate at their own level without having to put it into words. Play allows the child to release needs, fears and wishes. It also helps them to address emotional and behavioural difficulties.
Play Therapy is a suitable intervention for children aged between two and half and sixteen years.

I’ll work with your child over several sessions. At the end of those sessions, you and I will have a progress meeting.
