In order to create an emotional supportive environment to ensure that children remain stable and succeed academically, one has to consider the whole person. Social and family interactions play a huge role in children’s lives and keeping a balance between them is key to favourable outcomes.
A healthy and balanced social life is also reflected in their school / academic work, as it increase resilience, builds confidence, decreases complaining or resistance to other’s requests, avoids unpleasant feelings towards self and others. Children can be taught how to channel their energy to work through their feelings and stresses and to independently find solution and strategies for their problems.
At BLC we provide a supportive, safe and confidential environment were children can share their feelings, feel heard and just ‘unleash’ their anxieties. We guide them to find the most suitable solutions and how to manage their internal conflicts before they escalate, particularly during the usually more troublesome teenage years. We listen to the child’s concern without passing judgement and provide them with bespoken strategies to overcome their insecurities
