The Listening Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy Centre provides help and support for children and their families in the Laois/Offaly areas.
The Listening Tree is a private centre, offering Creative Psychotherapy, Play Therapy, Parenting support, Supervision and workshops for professionals.
Sometimes children experience difficulties that may cause disruption to their lives. Play Therapy and Creative Psychotherapy provides children the opportunity explore their thoughts, feelings and problems. Creativity and Play are a child's natural way of communication and expression.
The therapeutic powers of play facilitate self-expression, emotion regulation, resiliency, self-esteem, stress management, developing healthy coping and healing from traumatic experiences.
In play, children can re-enact traumatic events and play out their inner feelings in symbolic form. This allows children processing and making sense of their experiences. The relationship with the therapist is central to the healing process. Play within the containment offered by the therapist helps the child work through their painful experiences, restore healthy functioning and continue optimal development.
You will find us at the Mountmellick Development Association Building,
