In addition to the required training received at the University of KwaZulu Natal, I have attended a number of external training courses dealing with a variety of issues relating to therapy with children. I draw from a number of techniques and methods (including expressive techniques) in order to adapt to the unique individual needs of the child.
Some examples of difficulties faced by children/teens:
Anger outbursts/Temper tantrums
Difficulty making friends
Witnessing domestic violence
Diabetes/other chronic childhood illnesses
Loss of a parent/loved one
Adjustment Difficulties e.g. birth of a sibling/moving to a new school
Issues around identity & not fitting in
