Play therapy is based on the belief that play is a child’s natural way of expressing themselves. Children may not be able to put their thoughts and feelings into words. Through play children can play out their thoughts, feelings and difficulties just as an adult may talk out their difficulties.
The therapeutic relationship between the play therapist and child provides opportunities for healing and development. The child is provided with a safe space where they can express themselves. Play therapy facilitates the development of emotional intelligence and resilience, while helping the child to make sense of their world.
All children can benefit from play therapy as it promotes self-confidence, communication, creativity and problem-solving skills.
Why children come to play therapy:
· Behavioural issues
· Communication difficulties
· Delayed development
· Attachment issues
· Relationship difficulties
· Parental separation/divorce
· Bereavement or loss
· Low self-esteem
· Poor play skills
· Illness and/or Hospitalisations
· Fostering or Adoption

ABI Ireland believe in the power of neuro-rehabilitation, and the difference that can be made by empowering and supporting those living with a brain injury. Community neuro-rehabilitation aims to enable people to adjust to life in the community, following a period of rehabilitation in hospital, as skills may need to be re-learned. ABI Ireland support people with an ABI and their families through the biopsychosocial model of services, which recognises that biological, psychological, and social factors and their complex interaction must all be considered to ensure successful rehabilitation. At the heart of our everyday work is the individual rehabilitation plan (IRP). The IRP is developed with the person who has suffered a brain injury and is tailored to meet their needs. It enables the person to make decision that effect all aspects of their life and to identify and reach personal goals that are meaningful to them, helping drive their rehabilitation forward. The IRP is the key element of ensuring a person-centred approach. The mission of ABI Ireland is to enable people with neuro-rehabilitation needs to lead meaningful lives in the community by providing personalised quality rehabilitation and support. ABI Ireland recognised that every person is different, so every brain injury is different and in need of an individual rehabilitation plan. The IRP is developed through several ABI Ireland services and supports, and these include, Neuro-rehabilitation teams, case management, assisted living residential services, transitional living services, day resources/clubhouse facilities, family support services, clinical support including psychology services, awareness information and education and cares training.
