For small people, the world is big and loud, adults are taller and have authority. Life can seem very confusing from a young person’s perspective. Kinesiology can help with fears and anxieties that arise around day-care or school, animals or places that prevent that little person from being happy.
Behaviours such as: nail-biting, hair pulling, self-harm behaviours, bedwetting, night terrors, separation anxiety and clinginess are all signs of the stress within because of how they are interpreting their experiences in the day.
Fear is a natural, self-protective mechanism in response to new situations, environments and people. However, if your child is prevented from developing healthy, confident ways of responding to their experiences, fear can become debilitating and self-perpetuating – turning into phobias.
