Using a variety of play therapy techniques, your child's natural language of play will help us process their emotions in a safe environment. 
Initial appointments are for meeting with caregivers. Play therapy sessions can be done either online or in person.

Individual Counselling

All the clinicians at Headstart are trained in various expressive therapeutic techniques that can be combined with traditional talk therapy on an individual basis to achieve therapeutic progress outside of the play setting.
