Hi, I’m Kim Scott and I’m Park View School’s therapist.

I use a form of touch therapy and light finger pressure that is specifically tailored for those with additional needs including emotional issues, anger, autism, ADHD, anxiety and stress.  These gentle sessions can help us to manage emotions and disorders, relax and also reduce physical pain and discomfort. By stimulating the 4 primary chemicals of the brain, it activates the part of the nervous system that helps us to relax, deactivating the part that gets us ready for the fight or flight response.  Emotional stress and frustration are then lifted and mood can be boosted. These safe and nurturing sessions delivered on a long-term basis will help a young person rest and cope better.
