19 Jan Child therapy – do they need it?
As a mother of two children, I obviously have a special interest in child therapy. I love seeing how nutrition, healing and essences can change the lives of our youngsters. How often have we found ourselves as parents saying, “You don’t know how good you’ve got it” or “when I was your age”……
Yes, they have all the latest DVDs, mobile phones, fashions and beauty treatments but what else do they have? Academic and peer pressure, nutrient deficient foods, allergies, early puberty, global warming and an increase in family break-ups.
Is it any surprise that some of our children are struggling to cope?
Many of our children have the weight of the world on their shoulders. And some of them have even forgotten how to play!
Children are being given labels of ADD (attention deficit disorder) and ADHD (attention deficit and hyperactive disorder). Their frustrations and anger are being mistaken as disruptive and disobedient behaviour. Low self-esteem and self-worth are being mistaken for rudeness and disrespect!
Within my practice I have put together a unique combination for these Young People. Using a blend of Nutritional Therapy, Flower Essences and Natural Healing it is possible to bring back some BALANCE into their lives.
Flower Essence Therapy can help children to understand their feelings and cope with their modern day stresses and worries. Children are very receptive to essences and can benefit very quickly. As there are no side-effects they are safe for children of all ages.
My experience from working with children shows that many of them are very sensitive and are having difficulties coping in our fast-paced, material world. Essences help to ‘ground’ children and enable them to cope better with the transition from child to adult. It is surprising how many childhood ‘tummy aches’ and ‘headaches’ are caused by fears and worries!
The problems being experienced can also be due to poor diet and nutritional deficiencies.
Good nutrition is particularly important for our growing children. Our hectic lifestyles and over-reliance on highly refined foods has meant that the nutritional quality of kids diets has been declining for some time. Low levels of nutrients may ultimately lead to a variety of problems including:
. learning difficulties
. problems with behaviour
. poor concentration
. low energy
Natural Healing (also known as hands-on healing) is a lovely remedy for hyperactivity and behaviour problems. The therapist channels healing energy to the patient which has a calming and relaxing effect. This then allows the body to use its own natural defences to heal itself. This therapy brings about balance between body, mind and spirit.
