HANDLE uses the interplay amongst the mind, body and environment to help the brain gently change itself. By enhancing the neurological systems causing life or learning difficulties HANDLE gently make the changes needed to help an individual’s life go better and easier.
HANDLE is a fun, caring, and versatile medication free approach for all ages. HANDLE puts the individual at the heart of its focus. It works at your pace, adapting to your needs – both the individual and their family.
First a HANDLE Screening, taking 45-60 minutes. During it I gather observations to build a personal profile of any sensori-motor areas that may benefit from support and development. A personalised, fun therapy program of Activities is then devised and taught.
Activities vary and may involve particular massages, movement sequences or games. These take just 15-20 minutes daily and can be spread across the day or completed one after the other. Some activities need simple, inexpensive equipment. Most activities can be done anywhere.
Reviews then update the program every 4 weeks.
Most programs involve a minimum 6-month commitment as HANDLE focuses upon not stressing already stressed systems. We have chance to build up a positive relationship ensuring that you, or your child, are an individual and that your needs are always at the centre of everything we do.
Key Features of HANDLE
HANDLE respects the individual. By using Gentle Enhancement activities are stopped immediately in response to any subtle signs of stress. You will be taught how to recognise these Changes in State and how to respond appropriately and with care.
HANDLE requires commitment to ensure its gentle approach results in achieving and sustaining the desired benefits. It has life changing potential.
