When working with children the methodology of a talking therapy is often too difficult. The questioning, exploring and considering is not appropriate for children when they often don’t know how they feel, or have not learned how to express their thoughts and feelings. This can be especially true when it comes to children and traumatic events.
This type of therapy is combined with other integrative approaches to provide a holistic approach for children so the focus can be on healing.
I am fully qualified child counsellor and qualified practitioner in child EMDR and child hypnotherapy, with younger children I often work the parents, attachment figure in the room and support the parents to parent therapeutically during their child's process.
