In my humble opinion ‘Kids are so resilient’ is a phrase that I hear far too often!  And yes, whilst that may be true it doesn’t mean that they are free of stress and emotions or that they adjust seamlessly to every situation thrown at them!  And honestly, the mental health cliff edge that the pandemic threw at us affected our little humans just as much as us grown up humans!  So perhaps you find yourself as a parent not sure where to turn or what to do when your little human is struggling!  And therapy for kids with the Inspired Project may be an option you would like to explore?

Moriah-Jane has a natural and beautiful way with children that allows them to feel relaxed and heard in world where they may feel lost and out of control.  Kids walk out with a grin on their face, their shoulders a little tense and an excitement for the next session.

Therapy for kids with the Inspired Project How it Works

Moriah-Jane offers a variety of therapy options depending on your child’s age, needs and goals.  Some of therapy techniques she uses are stated below a brief description of each.

Music Therapy

Music Therapy is the clinical and evidence-based use of music interventions to accomplish individualised goals.  Moreover, it uses music therapeutically to address physical, psychological, cognitive, behavioural and/or social functioning. Because music therapy is a powerful and non-threatening medium, unique outcomes are possible. With young children, music therapy provides a unique variety of music experiences in an intentional and developmentally appropriate manner to effect changes in a child’s behaviour and facilitate the development of his/her communication, social/emotional, sensory-motor, and/or cognitive skills.

Play Therapy

Play therapy for kids is a form of psychotherapy and can be effective in helping children through emotional and mental issues. Children often use play to express themselves and navigate the world, and play therapy takes advantage of this. Also, play therapy is primarily used with children. However, it can also be used with adults. Furthermore, it is typically used with children who are aged between 3 and 12.

Play therapy is particularly beneficial for people who struggle with communicating and expressing themselves in a positive and healthy manner.  Namely these could include children with behavioral disorders or learning disabilities.

There has been some research into the effectiveness of play therapy on children with the following conditions:

  1. Autism 
  2. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  3. Depression
  4. Anxiety disorders
  5. Post-traumatic stress disorder 
  6. Physical and emotional trauma 
  7. Sexual abuse
  8. Physical or emotional abuse
Creative Therapy

Creative therapy uses art forms — such as dance, drawing, or music — to help treat certain conditions. Trained therapists can administer creative therapy to help people experiencing various mental, emotional, and physical issues. Worth noting, creative therapy does not require a person to have any sort of artistic ability.
