Children by their very innocence are intrinsic in sensing dangers in their environments they will often hold this intrinsic sense in their bodies.
It alerts them to imminent or ongoing dangers, wherein in certain circumstances parents, teachers, and carers find them turning to them for help to process these intrinsic senses they feel.
It is the adult’s role to help children process and understand these life experiences. It teaches children they have an inner emotional reference map that will guide them to make safe choices.
It will guide them in life’s encounters when dangers unexpectedly arise and help them to make the safe choice in these moments of dangers and risks.
Our approach recognizes adults have their own lived experience of their own childhood experiences of safety and dangers when tapped into will act as an inner reference map to help guide the children in your lives, not from a reactive place rather from a responsive place.
Our safe place for children’s training will start by helping adults to connect and reconnect with their own safe places. This is a key ingredient in helping our children is for adults to connect with their own inner reference map which holds the wisdom to help you guide children in finding their safe place.
Our training will help you enable
- children to experience they can create a safe place.
- children experience that this is a place inside where they can go at any time to keep themselves safe.
- children can, through their imagination or memory, recall a time or person where they have felt safe in the past.
- children learn to trust their own bodily feelings and sensations, allowing their hands to draw/symbolize this inner discovery.
These life skills we can pass on to our children so they can connect and create a safe space inside themselves. Children learn by staying close to their inner safe space they can concentrate and learn better ways to manage conflict.
