Retained Primitive Reflexes are the keys to understanding many child learning and behavior issues and the treatment of these forms a major part of The Child Centre Method ®.
Barry has trained with Dr Alweena Awan, the Founder and International Director of The Child Centre Method – Learning and Behavior Improvement Program ® (CCM). CCM is the culmination of over twenty years of experience of working with children, as teacher, researcher and therapist.
When a Primitive Reflex has been integrated the changes in child behavior are always noticeable. You will have removed several layers of stress from your child. As a result your child will be:
- Calmer and more stable
- Less Shy
- Less Aggressive
- Improved coordination
- Have improved spelling, writing and comprehension
- Have better coordination
Primitive and Postural Reflexes are programmed automatic movements which develop in Utero for our survival.
An example is the Moro reflex, which allows a newborn to take its first breath. Problems arise if the reflex is retained, as the body is held in ‘fight or flight’ mode. As a baby grows up, this primitive reflex is replaced by newly learned movements, in a process of integration.
However, when the process of integration is not complete, the reflex will have an adverse effect on a child’s emotional well-being as well as how the child learns and behaves.
Barry works with children & teens specializing particularly with those experiencing anxiety, low motivation, anger & frustration, concentration issues and sleeping problems.
A comprehensive assessment is carried out on the first consultation. This will give a clear picture of what is going on for each child from a physical literacy perspective. Very gentle kinesiology and craniosacral techniques are used to integrate each reflex. Most children find it a very relaxing experiencing and usually “feel lighter” or a little tired after the session. This is very natural as it is stress leaving the body and the nervous system beginning to relax.
Each client will receive a specific daily home movement program to further deepen each session.
Barry is on hand to act as a continuous support in assisting your child to feeling CONFIDENT, RELAXED & HAPPIER from the inside out!
Appointments are available in Dublin, Monaghan & Galway clinics.
