Parent Guidance

When working therapeutically with very young children, elements of attachment therapy and other play-based techniques as well as parents participation in sessions are often used. Parents are empowered with knowledge and age-appropriate techniques to help children at home.

This may include the reinforcing of coping or self-regulating techniques which contributes to childrens healing or the root of emotional and behavioural problems, who struggle with big feelings, dysregulation, anger, anxiety or adjustment problems.

Parents are given guidance and understanding of the child’s behaviour and emotional wellbeing and current coping strategies. Focus is on the empowerment of the parent through tools and knowledge and support, which enable them to assist and facilitate the healing process of the child.
