Play is healing !


Is “over thinking” or thoughts playing on your mind like an old record player?

Words, talk and sentences just go round and round in the brain and you feel you are going nowhere.  This may be what is meant when we say we are “over-thinking”  or ruminating, a feature of anxiety.  We also know that we tend to over use the left side of our brain which is geared to words and getting results and goal seeking.

When you feel stuck or like you are going round in circles, there are many ways you can change this through counselling – we express non-verbally, and you naturally do this all the time. .

Play  can be a great way to get past or underneath the words.   We might use sand tray and natural objects and figures and miniature models.  There are other “creative apporaches” in the counselling room too, which stimulate the other side of the brain!

Please let me know if you are attracted to using a creative approach.
