Children's Program

Children's SenseWell - What is it?

 

The Children's SenseWell Early Intervention Program is a unique program offered to assist children (aged 5 to 9 years) that have been identified as highly sensitive and anxious and have demonstrated particular difficulty managing their intense emotions, negative thoughts and may have begun to develop some challenging or difficult behaviours that are of significant concern to parents, friends, teachers, or others. Sensitive children benefit from assistance as early as possible to manage their sensitive emotions so that they don't become overwhelmed and experience an interrupted education or strained relationships with others. This program aims to increase children's confidence that they can help themselves to cope.
