About My Approach

Patterns in My Body

Clues to help us with our healing are hidden in our bodies. And our feelings are like signposts showing us the way.

I help your child to find where in their body they may hold anxiety, negative feelings or trauma. By helping them work intuitively through visualisation I then help them to acknowledge what their feelings are about and to let go of them. Feeling their feelings and being heard are the most important part of this process for your child. As a result they will feel patterns change in their body (eg they will notice they feel less tight in their chest or that they can beathe or digest more easily.) This will have a positive knock-on affect on their general sense of wellbeing, happiness and self esteem. 

What will my child need to do?

I will ask your child to sit in a comfortable chair where they will be well supported but they will not be lying down. I will talk briefly about how we can trust our intuition and then have a simple dialogue with your child (working as I described above.) I don’t use any hypnotherapy tricks or music. Our answers to healing are just below the surface of our conscious mind. We don’t need to go ‘deep’ or, as some people say ‘under’ to find them.

Feeling My Feelings and Finding My Voice

Healing is like planting a garden. We usually need to pull up a few weeds but we mustn’t forget to plant the flowers!

I help children to express their true selves. This is not a music, art, movement or play session. I help your child to find their voice- what they want to say at that exact moment. I use paint, backing tracks and musical instruments but these are simply ways of supporting your child on their journey of exploration. The inspiration will come from inside of them and be their own story.

When we let go of what is bothering us and find our voice to speak out who we are we feel better about ourselves and our lives. We find it easier to give ourselves what we need, to self regulate and to embrace all that is good around us.

Loving My Senses

Being more aware of your senses than some feels difficult sometimes but the blessings are SO much bigger than the challenges.

For very sensitive children I use a more gentle approach. I keep talking and instruction to a minimum. I understand that sound, movement, music and even colours and textures of paint and paper can feel overpowering to a very sensitive child. If we don’t feel like painting we might want to speak in a different way using colour, shape and texture. If we don’t feel like moving, we might like making shapes. If we don’t feel like music we might like to listen to a rhythm or a pigeon cooing or a sound we make with our body. We work with our own story and our own energy. Our inspiration is story, picture, sound, nature, food and colour. We learn how to embrace ourselves and the world in our special unique way.
