I am a psychotherapist who has successfully treated children and adults for more than 25 years across a wide variety of clinical diagnoses including many special needs. My philosophy centres on the understanding that emotions, both conscious and unconscious, are often the drivers of all behaviours. If you facilitate the correct expression of emotion, you can bring about balance, self regulation and develop powerful insights that can change behaviour.
I believe that when "special needs" children are met with honour, respect and dignity, they can flourish and usually succeed in life far beyond expectations.
The challenge is reaching, communicating, and teaching a person who has special needs. The answer lies in providing a special environment where safety, creativity and acceptance are experienced in a deep and profound way. It is only then that progress can be made.
