What is StoryPlay®? 


StoryPlay® is a model of therapy that provides creative approaches for healing, problem solving, self-growth, and professional development. Expanding upon her model of Ericksonian Play Therapy, StoryPlay® has been in progress for over two decades by Dr. Joyce Mills. StoryPlay® uses the foundation of metaphors, storytelling, and play, along with the principles of Ericksonian hypnotherapy, and Indigenous teachings, from which all therapeutic approaches are designed and implemented.


Why use StoryPlay®?


Since Play is the language of children, and Creativity is the language of Play, The StoryPlay® model brings together the elements of story, creativity, and play to form a unique and proven method to effect positive change, healing, and problem solving. StoryPlay® draws on the natural inner resources, skills, and strengths of each individual, group, and organization to create therapeutic growth and change
