Visiting a coach can be of great benefit to a child, as it allows him or her to learn to cope with whatever is going on in his or her life. My role as a child coach is to give children between the ages of 4 and 12 the support they need when struggling with a problem.
During the coaching sessions, I teach your child new skills through play, allowing the child to discover their own strengths and positive attributes. I do this through taking a solution-oriented approach: instead of dwelling on the problem itself, I work with the child on what he or she wants to learn.
Bringing up children is not always the easiest of tasks. As a parent, you want things to go well for your child and you do all you can to make sure that your child leads a happy life. It can therefore be distressing to see your child struggling or when you feel that you struggle in your role as a parent.
Parent coaching leads you to new insights, allowing for positive change and support
As a counsellor, my strength lies in approaching the challenges in life in a positive and solution focussed way. Helping to develop skills to cope with what is going on, this works for both children and adults.
"Our daughter has gone from an insecure girl to a positive girl. We noticed her being happier and developing more confidence. In particular by transforming more negative thoughts into positive thoughts and seeing the things that she is good at."
"Lenneke has helped our daughter enormously. We have experienced her as very involved and positive. She takes the time to provide feedback after every session and makes sure to involve us as parents. We can therefore heartily recommend Kinderpraktijk Mimosa!"
"Our son has had very angry moods for a long time and we have been unable to guide him through this. Thanks to Lenneke, these moods are gone. He is still angry, but now handles this in a good way and no longer in a way that impacts on the whole family. Thank you Lenneke! We really like the way you have supported us."
"We have experienced Lenneke as someone with a lot of knowledge and expertise. She does not judge and is empathetic. Lenneke also really tries to look at what suits us as parents and as a family."
