Children should be laughing
Children (Ages 3-12)
Younger people usually project their feelings through anger, bullying and tantrums.
My practice allows the child and teenager to unfold their stories through events, the sequence it is linked in across time. We also work according to a plot. In counselling young children, I engage in art therapy, play therapy and metaphorical interventions such as "The Tree of Life" and the "Three Houses". Art Therapy is also a great part of my work with a young child. A child externalises his/her feelings through their art.
"Narrative approaches to counselling invite clients to begin a journey of co-exploration in search of talents and abilities that are hidden or veiled by a life problem" (Monk, Winslade, Crocket, & Epston, 1997, pp. 3., Par. 3).
