Every child has the right to happy, carefree childhood. Adults may suspect they will grow out of their problems or forget bad experiences but that is far from the case. Adults must treat a child’s unhappiness very seriously where children are angry, withdrawn, experiencing trauma, abuse, loss, or has separated or divorced parents. Also child who is bullied, or is bullying, who has nightmares, is excluded from other children’s play, or constantly ill. All need a fully professional counsellor/psychologist that specialises in such work. Maarit strengthens a child’s inner resources - enabling them to cope even with situations that cannot be changed. She helps the child gain a positive view of their life and future, thus also improving child’s general well being. She works in such a way that the child sees it as fun. They may experience it as play, but are actually deeply engaged in their inner work.

Specialised therapy for children

Children under twelve are rarely able to use words to express trauma or deep inner emotions. This inability to convey their anguish may lead to myriad problems: aggression, violence and self-harm, depression, elective non-talking, nightmares, bedwetting, school refusal, lack of confidence, lack of friends, and susceptibility to bullying or being a bully. Whilst usually unable to vocalise inner problems, young children can and do express their problems in imagery and symbols.
