Why Play Therapy?

Play Therapy is a specific counselling approach in which games, toys and mediums such as clay, drawings and paint are used to help a child or adolescent to express their emotions, thoughts, wishes and needs. 

Helping to understand muddled feelings and upsetting events, children use play to communicate at their own level and at their own pace, without feeling interrogated or threatened. 

In tranquil and serene surroundings, Chameleon Play Therapy Centre is conveniently located in Jukskei Park, Johannesburg.


Offering a host of services from IQ & Aptitude testing and School Readiness Assessments to Trauma Counselling and Stress Management, Play and Art Therapy to name a few.

5 Signs That Your Child May Need Therapy

Does your child display any of the following symptoms?

  • uncontrolled activity
  • leave messes
  • throw tantrums
  • doesn't listen
  • won't follow instructions
It is especially hard being the parent of a troubled child. Parents often feel powerless and at a loss. Play Therapy can help your child to express themselves and work through these issues in a fun, safe and contained environment and under the expert guidance of a healthcare professional.


"Liewe Tannie BrendaOns drie seuns van die kinderhuis, wil dankie se dat tannie ons gereeld sien. Tannie is die rede dat dit met ons net beter en beter gaan elke keer as ons jou gesien het. Ons waardeer tannie en bid dat God jou sal seen, want dit is mense soos jy wat die lewe vir ons aangenaam maak." ~ 3 Anonymous patients
