My work with older children and teenagers is usually arranged by parents who are concerned about their child, for varying reasons:
You may notice your child:
- struggling to manage life emotionally and in their relationships.
- not developing in line with their peers.
- having difficulty dealing with their sensory experience, being over/under sensitive, their movement organisation being out of kilter, being unco-ordinated or struggling with every day motor tasks.
The nature of a session can vary hugely, depending on the needs of the individual. Depending on the age of the child and how they are, sessions can be with or without the parent present.
Generally, in a session I work from where the child/young person is, using play, movement games and tasks. We work in a big clear studio, with a number of props that we can use. Through our play and work together, we find out what the themes and issues are. What is easy, or difficult? What are the stories that are being told, through the person’s movement, and sensory and emotional experience? The sessions operate on an emotional and physical level, and aim to resolve earlier life material that is coming to the surface, or to more fully establish any developmental foundations that were missed early on. As well as moving, drawing and art work might be included.
