At a time where anxiety, worry, depression and psychological distress is at its peak, the skilled therapists at Be Centre have provided a safe and secure environment where children can be heard, healed, and can create the building blocks to become self-aware, emotionally regulated, and resilient. Proudly, we would like to highlight the key deliverables we were able to achieve in 2021:

  • 1844 Play Therapy sessions
  • 56 Tele-play therapy sessions
  • 145 children attended Play Therapy
  • 33 Art Club sessions
  • 8 holiday community workshops with 49 participants
  • 49% of Play Therapy sessions provided on a scholarship basis
  • 39 families benefited from Parent Child Attachment Play
  • 12 Festival of Play (bushfire impact workshops) with 164 participants.

Play therapy is crucial for intervention. It allows children to receive the support they need to become mentally healthy and happy going into adolescence and adulthood. Leaving trauma unattended can lead to a range of issues, mental health complexities and potential psychological disorders. Play therapy is a proven approach to healing trauma.

Be Centre is funded entirely through generous donors, fundraising activities, and grants.
