How long does Play Therapy take?


Some children will respond to a short term intervention (for example, up to 12 sessions). However, when problems have persisted for a long time or are complicated, a longer-term intervention may be required. In these circumstances some Play Therapists have worked with children for two years or more. Sessions are usually once a week. Consistency on a regular day and at the same time and place is very important for developing a trusting relationship. Unplanned and missed sessions may disrupt the progress.
