integrative child therapy

Integrative child therapy is a playful form of psychotherapy. We believe that the child has the wisdom and possibilities to heal itself and that he/she just may need some insight and guidance to connect with it.


Integrative psychotherapy is a process of integrating parts of the personality. A personality may consist of unconscious and unresolved aspects of the self. And parts that are in survival mode (resistance).

The therapy is a process of healing. I, the therapist, guide this process, and also help bring emotional, cognitive, social, physiological and spiritual systems together within a person. The focus is not on the problem alone, but on your child as a whole and its environment.

The methods used during Integrative child therapy depend on the needs and possibilities of your child. The objective is that your child gains more understanding of him-/herself and becomes more confident of his/her ground. With this solid ground, your child learns to deal with his/her problems and will find a solution that suits him/her.  

Examples are: playtherapy, creative therapy, bodywork, family constellations, sherborne attachment play (sherborne samenspel).

Integrative child therapy is suitable for a wide range of problems. Some examples are:


aggressive behaviour,

sleeping problems,

social awkwardness and

problems caused by high sensitivity.

Throughout the therapy proces, parents are guided to place themselves in the position of their child in order to understand and support him/her better.

In order to improve the parent-child bond or the sense of security we can do Sherborne Interplay.
