Welcome to Kernow Play Therapy

Young children are not sufficiently developed to express themselves fully through speech, they communicate most effectively through play (where they can act out their experiences and feelings).

Play Therapy is a specialized form of counselling designed for children, where the toys act as the child’s words and the child does not feel threatened or interrogated.
