Counselling for Children

Life has unexpected challenges, and how we manage those difficult times can negatively impact a child’s emotional well-being. Registered Counsellor, Brenda Leemans, strives to provide assistance and support for affected families at Knights Wellness Centre. Her willingness to go the extra mile for her patients has made her a sought-after resource for assisting families through trying times.

I believe that kids are innately honest and never have hidden agendas. Kids express their emotions through playing and at times this assists them to say something they can’t verbalize or articulate properly. I assist them to move from a place where they’re acting out and getting negative feedback to a place where they are just being their true and amazing selves.

Child therapy is a type of therapy used to help children express their thoughts, feelings, and experiences through play. It involves the use of toys, games, and other play materials to create a safe and therapeutic environment for children to explore and work through their challenges. Child therapy is often used to address issues such as behavioural problems, emotional difficulties, and trauma in children. The therapist works with the child to develop a trusting relationship and uses play as a means of communication and healing.

Brain profiling using the NBI (Neethling Brain Instruments) is a tool for understanding how an individual's brain processes information and makes decisions. NBI is a type of psychological assessment that is based on the latest research in neuroscience and is designed to provide insight into an individual's thinking preferences, strengths, and areas for development. By understanding an individual's thinking preferences, the NBI can provide insights into their natural tendencies, strengths, and potential blind spots. 

Therapeutic children's books are books that are specifically designed to help children cope with emotional and psychological challenges. These books often have a story that children can relate to and can help them understand and express their feelings. They can be used in therapy sessions or as a tool for parents and caregivers to engage with children on difficult topics. Therapeutic children's books can cover a wide range of topics, including anxiety, grief, trauma, and self-esteem, and they can be a helpful resource for children who are struggling to cope with these issues.
