Business profile

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. In my form of therapy I use talk, play and the child's abstract creation of what troubles them in various forms of art to understand the need of each individual child. I work in such a way that children see as fun. They experience it as play but are deeply engaged in their inner self as they reveal their feelings and problems. This also helps them to think creatively and use lateral thinking - and often use this skill in other aspects of their life. This now long established therapy especially suites children who have experienced trauma, abuse or neglect. It is also suited for children underperforming socially, culturally, physically and/or academically. A child might need help for their bereavement and loss, or to cope with separation or divorce of parents. The problems start to occur when the child has no way of expressing the inevitable deep feelings and emotions. I can assist to resolve them. How I can assist your child I help a child to increase self-esteem, improve wellbeing, and foster imagination and creativity. I help the child to gain or regain confidence and concentration. I help the child to improve communication and understanding. I assist the child to develop emotionally and socially. I also allow the children to make mistakes and to learn from them safely. I teach the child to implement strategies to cope with difficulties and situations that cannot be changed. All leads the child to a positive view of current and future life, and to establish new relationships and gain friends. I can assist your child and provide them with the support they need - not only to face life's challenges but also to develop inner resourcefulness, enabling them to grow happily and confidently. About Maarit Rivers I am a warm, compassionate and creative child psychologist/counsellor/therapist using long proven and academically accepted techniques that extend beyond culture and language. My practice is in the Northern Beaches of Sydney with calming views over tranquil Pittwater. I work exclusively with children from age four till twelve. About my experience I have an extensive therapeutic experience with children of varying cultural, religious, socio economic and racial backgrounds. These include Aboriginal and refugee children.
