Theraplay® is a child and family therapy for enhancing and building attachment, self-esteem, trust in others and joyful engagement. It is based on the natural patterns of playful, healthy interaction between parent/carer and child and is personal, physical and fun.


We currently offer Theraplay® based approaches with children/young people alongside their parents/carers.  Group theraplay in schools and home settings can also be provided within educational settings.  Theraplay interactions focus upon four essential qualities found in parent-child relationships: Structure, Engagement, Nurture and Challenge.


Theraplay® has evidence-based status and has been found to promote positive outcomes

for children with a diversity of needs, including:

  • Adopted and Looked after children

  • Children with attachment disorder and insecure attachment style

  • Children who have experienced domestic violence and trauma

  • Children with language disorder
