Child Therapist & Parent Coaching, specialized in Play Therapy & Parenting Support
Meet Maha Ghazale
Hello, My name is Maha Ghazale, I am a trained and certified Play Therapist based in Beirut, Lebanon. I provide Play therapy to children who are struggling with their emotions and are experiencing a difficult time. Play therapy enables and empowers children to communicate and express feelings, modify behavior, and enhance their problem-solving skills. Parental support programs are also offered to help the family come together in ways that promote growth and healing. Click on services to learn more.
What is Play Therapy?
Play Therapy is a powerful tool for addressing cognitive, behavioural and emotional challenges. Trained and certified Play Therapists use play to assess and understand the child’s world. Therapists use play to help clients better understand their experiences and develop more effective strategies for managing their worlds. Studies suggest Play Therapy as a practical mental health approach, regardless of age, gender or nature of the Problem, and works best when a parent, caretaker or family member is actively involved in the treatment process.
(12 months – 23 months)
Play Therapy Toolkit
In the play therapy room, the Play Therapists use a set of therapeutic play equipment for children to work with. The toolkit is the child’s way to communicate, express and understand their feelings and thought processes. Each toy has a purpose chosen to offer children many opportunities for self-expression and creativity – allowing them to explore and make sense of their world. Children need distance and protection from troublesome thoughts or feelings and use play scenarios and toys less consciously and symbolically (Axline, 1969).
The Play therapy toolkit includes the followings:

An amazing inside out lady, your generosity and kind heart left a deep mark in the future of many kids who read your , full of hope, story The Little Helpers. It is sooo rare to find someone who writes, publishes and distribute a story to help the kids deal with the unfortunate side effects of the heartbreaking 4th August Lebanon explosion.
Mrs Maha, you have given so much more than a book to the kids who rented books from my page, you have given a feeling of hope and security.
May all your days and steps be blessed. I’m forever grateful and thankful and honored I crossed roads with you.
Maha’s thorough and simple approach to explaining child behavior and mentality has changed the way I interact with my child and really helped me understand him better. My child was at ease around her and was comforted by her warm and welcoming approach. Thanks to Maha’s therapy sessions, my child flourished and I was always to rely on Maha’s support whenever I needed it.
Maha is a very determined and honest therapist who goes above and beyond to change people lives and works towards to the best interests of the children. Maha has offered a lot in her community with the recent explosion in Lebanon and she is changing the scene in child therapy in her country. I always love working with Maha and explore new areas and approaches in child therapy and parenting. As a therapist too, I highly recommend Maha and the work she does in Lebanon because she is an inspiration for all of us.
I got to know Maha when we studied Play Therapy together. She is very kind, determined, and humble and has a passion to see children’s lives changed through play therapy. She is always finding ways to learn more and grow as a professional and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for support with their child. I know that Maha will do all that she can to help and support not only the child but also the family.
