The Paradise Kids Way
Paradise Kids aims to help heal the heartache. This emphasis on ‘heart-work’ indicates that we take a ‘holistic’ approach to address all aspects of the child – body, mind and spirit. We believe that this offers valuable Life skills, and allows our children to move forward in life and face the future with healthy living that includes love, body awareness, understanding of feelings, happiness, confidence, and inner peace that can be maintained in times of change.
Paradise Kids deals with serious issues, yet the seven sessions of the Grief and Loss Support Program also include a lot of fun. Activities include art, story telling, breath work, stress reduction exercises, meditation, guided visualisations, movement, music and laughter. In an atmosphere of peer support, and with leadership from professional counsellors, each child is supported individually by a trained volunteer grief counsellor or “buddy”.
