I work with children from age 8 upwards on a number of issues including confidence, overcoming bullying, development, exam anxiety, generalised anxiety, fears and phobias and many other issues. Children respond well to this type of therapy. Many find it enjoyable and look forward to their sessions.
Sessions can be varied and often include providing them with simple techniques to use for themselves.
My studio is a friendly and relaxing environment and children love my Colour Mirrors bottles, which is a great way to get to know them and talk through issues without them feeling they are in ‘therapy’. All children are different, so it is a case of working out what is the best way to work with each individual child. Therapy can even be fun.
Development, Behavioural, Postural Issues
If your child is having issues with areas of their development there may well be good reason for this due to unintegrated or activated primitive and postural reflexes. This is an area unknown to many practitioners and therapists.
We are all born with Primitive and Postural reflexes. These reflexes are movement patterns providing mind : body integration and are usually naturally integrated through movement and stimulation. There are many reasons why our reflexes do not become integrated, which can affect our physical, emotional, behavioural, social and academic potential throughout life. Therefore, they play a crucial role in how we progress through life and when unintegrated may present many issues.
Some of the issues which have been highlighted due to unintegrated reflexes includes:
- Asperger’s Syndrome.
- Digestive issues
- Vision / reading / writing difficulties
- Social interaction difficulties
- Postural issues
- Behavioural issues
- Balance and Co-ordination
- Difficulty sitting/standing still
- Emotional issues, including anger
- Concentration issues
- Poor short term memory
- Low tolerance to stress
The above are a few of the issues which can be related to unintegrated reflexes. You may also recognise some of these issues in yourself and the good news is that it is never too late to integrate your reflexes – whether a child or adult.
