Lianca Fourie is a registered counsellor registered with the HPCSA with a speciality Masters degree in Play Therapy (MA Psych). Sessions aims at giving emotional support to children between the ages of 3 & 18 years through the use of play therapy techniques.
The aim of the sessions is to create a safe space for a child where emotions can safely be expressed. Children do not have the cognitive ability to verbally communicate their feelings and therefore, different play activities help the child to express their feelings on their own level of understanding. During the sessions the therapist will aim at understanding the world of the child as seen through the child’s perspective.
The strengthening of the child’s self is very important throughout the counseling process. The counselor can not change the circumstances of the child, but will aim to strengthen the child in order to be stronger in handling that same circumstances.
