Individual and Group Psychomotricity
The aim of psychomotricity, halfway between physical and mental, is to accompany the child towards a pleasant experience of their own body, in order to build a safe vessel for their own being. Through action, play and spontaneous movement, deep and archaic emotions are mobilised to facilitate the repair of situations experienced previously with anguish (separation, pain, fear, etc.).
With this treatment, children can elaborate, understand and represent their deepest experiences, thus strengthening an identity built on their own history. In this path we accompany the child from the pleasure of action to the pleasure of thought, facilitating the journey of mental and emotional maturation that they need.
This therapeutic approach is suggested for children who inhabit their body with a certain discomfort, interfering with their desire to relate to their environment in a way that is enriching for themselves and others: children who feel insecure or fragile, children who are closed in on themselves, children who are "governed" by their own impulsiveness, children who have experienced their body with displeasure or even pain (surgery, prematurity, prolonged illness or other medical complications), children who are extremely easily frustrated, children who have undergone serious loss (mourning, adoption)... psychomotor skills will be an open door to the acceptance of themselves, of their own desires and concerns, to be accept themselves as sole and responsible subjects within their true possibilities.
Psychomotor therapy can be developed both individually and in group, always according to clinical criteria that are evaluated on a case-by-case basis. An individual course is often necessary before entering group therapy. In the case of group therapy, between 3 to 5 children of a similar age and developmental stage meet weekly. This approach offers the possibility of enriching the therapeutic work from the similarities and differences that the children discover between them, as well as the relationships that are woven in the group.
