Who We Are

Association of Play Therapy Nigeria is a professional organisation of play therapy practitioners, psychologists, counsellors and other mental health professionals who use play therapy as a therapeutic intervention for children and young people.


We understand that play is the natural language of children – their means of self-expression. Our goal is to empower therapists to communicate effectively with children through play, creating a safe and nurturing space for them to navigate challenging situations.​Using play as a therapeutic medium, we aim to support children in developing crucial emotional and psychological skills, helping them thrive and overcome adversity.
