The development and emotional growth of the child and his or her family and individual is at the basis of our ethos.
Therapy is mainly administered by either a Clinical, Counselling or Educational Psychologist. The main focus of therapy is on the emotional well-being of the individual and successful adaptation to his or her environment. This can entail medication prescribed by a Psychiatrist who works very closely with the Psychologist in
a holistic approach towards the client/patient’s mental well-being.
Trauma is specifically an event that overwhelms the central nervous system, altering the way we process and recall memories. Trauma is not the story of something that happened back then, it is the current imprint of that pain, horror and fear living inside people. There is also a difference between single incident trauma and the impact of relationship trauma over a period of time.
Often, talk therapy alone is not effective enough to treat trauma…
In Paarl Practice children’s therapy is seen as a specialist field administered by Psychologists who specializes in the treatment of children with emotional and behavioural problems and who struggles to adapt to their environment.
A variety of treatment methods are used always creating a safe and protected space for the child as client.
