Support with Play

My son is three and a half years old; he has SDCP and attends a mainstream nursery. Although he doesn't have an ASD diagnosis, he often gets fixated on certain activities -- like opening and closing doors, or watching lift doors, or going on the train-- and doesn't want to participate in any accessible activity I suggest. I'm really struggling to help move him on with his play and I was wondering if anyone has any tips OR if you've ever worked with a therapist who's helped your family with this type of thing. I'm not even sure where to start looking! Is there even such a thing as a play therapist? Thanks in advance-
