Children's Therapy Services
Rainbow Muse offers therapy for all ages but we are particularly passionate about working with children. Rainbow Muse Therapy for Kids is for 3 - 12 year-olds (sometimes with their parent or caregiver).
Navigating the world when you're little and still making sense of things can be stressful enough and children sometimes require additional support, care and attention. Issues might include:
Feelings of anxiety
Difficulty paying attention or ADD/ADHD
Autism, neurodiversity and seeing the world a little differently from other children
Troubles with Sensory Processing
Bullying behaviour or being the victim of a bully
Emotions feel big because they don't know how to express them
Rainbow Muse encourages play and curiosity, creating a safe and nurturing space for children to explore, be heard, work through what may be troubling them and learn healthier coping strategies. Art therapy and play therapy are effective forms of psychotherapy/counselling for a wide range of childhood emotional, behavioural, social and psychological difficulties.
Rainbow Muse Kids Therapy can help children:
Increase empathy and connection
Learn how to express emotions in different ways
Reduce feelings of anxiety
Make sense of their inner world
Develop more positive self-talk
Exercise self-control and reduce impulsivity
Improve fine motor skills
Learn better coping strategies
Increase capacity to make appropriate choices and decisions
Rainbow Muse also offers yoga for kids! Yoga increases confidence, builds concentration and strengthens growing bodies. For children with behavioural issues, it can also improve impulse control and provide an outlet to manage their behaviour. Kids gain better body awareness, breath awareness and ability to integrate calm into their lives. The additional physical benefits include improved coordination and balance, and use of a wide range of muscles, encouraging motor development. For more information visit Cosmic Kids Yoga
The social, emotional and cognitive benefits of yoga include:
Increased attention span and improved concentration
Increased oxygen circulation to body and brain during practice
Improved ability to deal with daily anxiety and stress by incorporating relaxation and breathing techniques
Improved relationships and social awareness through group and partner work
Encouraging healthy sleep patterns through relaxing the body and lengthening the breath
Helping align body and mind, giving kids a great introduction to mindfulness.
Kids Yoga can be done with your child as part of their therapy package or classes can be held for schools, organisations and community groups. Please note: class sizes will vary depending on the children's needs. To discuss, contact me.
