What to expect


At your first appointment we will discuss the problems you are worried about and how we can work together. Depending on the problem, you may be asked to attend the first appointment without your child. This will help us to talk freely about the problems you and your child may be facing.

During the initial appointment, we will also go through consent, privacy and admin information. Therapy usually involves a few assessment sessions, a feedback and a planning session before any regular therapy sessions if necessary.

Sessions with What About Play may involve:

  • Individual child and parent therapy sessions focusing on specific psychosocial, emotional or mental health concerns
  • Joint parent and child therapy sessions focusing on relationship struggles and strengths
  • Group therapy┬ásessions with other parents and children targeting specific psychosocial, emotional or mental health concerns
