Family with ADD & Autistic Children
Under stress and other debilitating emotions, it’s normal to be in a constant state of “fight or flight” and we often forget our own path. Being a parent with a “unique” child requires more awareness -- not only about your path but also about your whole family’s path. My session, Conscious Awareness Coaching, helps you go deep within and reach out for your strength while helping your child have more self-esteem and be more harmonious with his/her surroundings. Intuitively and empathically, I can help the family move in the same direction because the path is illuminated for every member of the family.
Years ago, I also started working with unique children, who had been labeled by society and our western culture as autistic, ADD, ADHD …
Immediately, I recognized the importance of working with the entire family. In my book “Hearing a Different Voice” (2013), I describe these children connecting with me and telling me how their parents are affecting them. In fact, I noticed how much the parent’s change was related to their child’s change.
Throughout my session, I intuitively connect to the source of the problem/trauma, and I explain what I feel and what I “see”. At first, I prefer to work with the mother, not only because of the strong connection of mother-child, but also because the mother is the fulcrum of the family, and when the fulcrum is out of synch, nothing flows as it should. I help release the emotions related to any trauma, from childbirth to the current day. I also help increase your self-esteem and your child’s. I have noticed a profound change of behavior with the children who work with me in a short time. I help my clients integrate new habits until they become old habits, and reinforce the “positive future-self”, so the child starts to believe that he/she can “do more and better”. I always say to them, “You can be anything you want”.
It is essential to understand that ADD and autism is a “family matter”.You, the parents are part of the program, so you will experience the same things that your child does. Now, I work with the mother or the father, in order to reach the child. Your child could be in bed or in another location, and I would do a session in person or by Skype/phone only with you, parents.
Parents and children are connected emotionally, physically and mentally
Working with all the members of the family is very important, to believe in this work is important too (if only one of the parents wants to be part of the program, we can adjust it at the beginning, and when the child shows some improvement, the other parent can be more involved).
