Over The Rainbow Children's CentreSpecialising in play therapy & Adolescent & Child Psychotherapy
Welcome to Over the rainbow children’s centre. Based in Letterkenny, Co Donegal we specialise in play therapy and child and adolescent psychotherapy. The centre is owned and managed by Charlotte Lyne Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist and Play Therapist. Charlotte accepts referrals from parents, carers, GPs, social workers and teachers. At the heart of our service is the belief in the powerful healing that takes place in the therapeutic relationship that develops between the child and the therapist.
Our approach is grounded in humanist philosophy which views humans as having the ability within themselves to reach their highest potential given the right environment.
What is play therapy?
Child centred play therapy is a humanistic form of counselling and psychotherapy for children from 4 years and older. At the heart of Over the rainbow play therapy is the belief in the powerful healing that takes place in the therapeutic relationship that develops between the child and the therapist.
If you feel like your child or a child that you work with might benefit from play therapy please feel free to contact Charlotte for further information. Upon referral she will arrange a meeting with relevant adults in the child’s life to gather background information and conduct an initial assessment of the child to determine if play therapy is suitable.
Parents or caregivers who seek play therapy for their child often ask how they should explain play therapy to their child. The information given here will help give answers to questions children may ask about play therapy and is useful in helping children understand what play therapy is and how it can help.
