Play Therapy Northern Territory is the leading play therapy service within Darwin and surrounding areas. Play Therapy NT has been servicing Darwin since 2004, supporting children and families for over 14 years. PTNT operates from Parap. PTNT provides services to local and remote schools along with RDH and other NGO services. All Play Therapists are registered or working toward completing their full registration with APPTA (Australasia Pacific Play Therapy Association).
Josephine Martin is the Director of Play Therapy Northern Territory. She is an inspiring leader in the field, presenting Nationally and Internationally. She studied Psychology and Sociology at Latrobe University in Bendigo and has extensive experience in counselling and Play therapy background. At the beginning of her Play therapy journey she learnt from Interanational Play therapists in the UK and USA. In 2003 Josephine studied at the University Of Northern Texas (UNT), the leading training facility for Play Therapy in the United States for 3 weeks.
Josephine is also the face behind Play Therapy Day which is celebrated on 1st of July given the Territory's love of play.
The service provides children within the NT with the least intrusive form of therapy for children whereby they play out their trauma's rather than have to talk about them. We provide a specialist form of counselling for children to undertake with qualified registered therapists. Parents are supported through out the process with understanding, normalisation, strategies and skills to help them also help their children.
