Is your child under or over responsive/reactive to sensory input (sounds, smells, tastes, other people)?
Is your child struggling with reading and writing?
Do they struggle with physical activities such as riding a bike, swimming or climbing?
Does your child find it difficult to regulate their emotions, process information and interact with others appropriately?
Would you like to see positive changes in your child?
“ I was not sure we would ever see the day when he rode a bike, so we are feeling a lot of appreciation for this RMT method.” JF
Rhythmic Movement Training (RMT) is a simple yet effective therapeutic programme from Sweden. It is firmly grounded in years of scientific research about brain and child development.
Based on the role of a babies’ natural developmental movements (for example crawling), it teaches parents to engage their child in gentle movements that they may have missed out on. These movements are crucial for laying down the foundations of neural network pathways in the brain.
RMT also looks at infant reflexes such as the moro (startle), sucking and rooting, head righting and tonic neck reflexes which if not integrated are believed to contribute to learning challenges, writing problems, focussing and comprehension challenges, co-ordination difficulties, behavioural challenges, anxiety, emotional imbalances and overwhelm.
“The changes in B in just a month were remarkable. His cross crawling lying on his back was rhythmic and co-ordinated and he was able to do it unaided for which he was very proud. His eye contact improved- he made eye contact with me and interacted with me. He’s much stronger in his body, more upright, more engaged, more mature.” Chris
After completing a questionnaire we have a chat about your concerns regarding your child over the phone for 10 -20 minutes (in the evening if preferred).
The first session with you and your child would take 30-40 minutes and can be done via zoom or skype
Subsequent 30-40 minute follow ups are every 4-6 weeks. We speak just before the next appointment on the phone to discuss progress.
I provide a few rhythmic movements to be done at home every day. The beauty is that initially the movements take less than a minute.
Fees; £80 for the initial consultation and £60 for subsequent sessions including a catch up over the phone to discuss progress just before the session.
“I think C is doing much better. His confidence has increased dramatically and his writing has improved a lot. His tantrums are becoming less of an issue and he has started to rationalise things at times, rather than go mad straight away.” Zoe
"I was impressed by the way the Adoption Support course "Building Resilience"was structured and so easy to navigate. Gill is an excellent presenter. There was a wide range of relevant, experienced based content, delivered in an enthusiastic, caring, considered way. I enjoyed the activities and found them to be a great way of recapping on what I had learnt and adapting the strategies to suit my situation. I have learned many new ideas and found myself questioning my own feelings and behaviours"
