Treatments and Diagnosis

Play Therapy

Play therapy is a method of therapy using the ‘language’ of a child, namely PLAY. This is a non-threatening way for the child to deal with deep issues and inappropriate behaviour. In therapy the child can experiment with new, more appropriate ways of dealing with problems.

Attachment based therapy and interaction analysis

Attachment-based family therapy encourages a cooperative relationship between parents and children. It is a non-threatening way of helping family members trust each other more and repairing relationships. An interactional analysis usually conducted at the start of attachment based therapy. An interactional analysis is a wonderful tool to discover the communication, power balance and dynamics between the child and parent. An interactional analysis is the process through which the parent-child interaction is observed and evaluated according to a theoretical framework.

Trauma Therapy

Trauma, whether it is a specific event, prolonged trauma or perceived trauma, is part of our lives. The therapists are equipped to support families in dealing with trauma. We believe in helping children and parents to become resilient in dealing with trauma as we cannot prevent it from happening. Somatic work, as well as utilizing music and instruments as therapeutic tools, are used in trauma therapy. Trauma therapy is provided by all the therapists depending on the age of the child.

Play based therapy can be helpful for:

-Dealing with loss and trauma
-Dealing with separation / divorce
-Social skills development
-Dealing with big feelings
-Highly sensitive children
-Sibling rivalry

Inanda Bosman & Associates has helped us so much during the years to raise a well adjusted little boy. We have been seeing the therapists on and off for the last 4 years. My son has someone that he can confide in. He can tell them his fears and worries and he knows that they are there for him. He trusts them with everything. I can see the difference it makes in his demeanour every time we went for a session. Then they also help us as parents to understand him better. How to handle certain situations and what route to follow in the future. I have in the past, and will with certainty in the future recommend Inanda Bosman & Associates to anyone in need.
