About Adulting: What Is My Child Going Through?

 

Do you sometimes feel you no longer know how to parent your adulting child? Do you feel hurt that your child has grown disconnected from you?

Would you like to learn more about your child’s adulting world?

In this talk, EMCC Counsellor Sapna Mathews will explain what your adulting child is going through and what you can do to better connect with and support him/her.  There will also be a Q&A session after the talk for you to ask your questions about this topic.

This is an in-person event held at EMCC which is conveniently located at National Library Building at North Bridge Road/ Victoria Street near Bugis MRT and City Hall MRT.

Sapna Mathews, Counsellor, EMCC

Sapna believes that sometimes we get caught up in a dance – a dance of thinking, feeling and reacting. This could mean being stuck in how we handle relationships, how we cope with stress and anxiety or the meaning we give to certain situations or things. Becoming aware of our dance and what we need to do to change it, is where Sapna feels counselling plays a big part.

Sapna is also passionate about working with children using Play Therapy. Children may not have language skills that adults possess and hence may be unable to articulate their feelings. Play therapy helps create a safe space for the child to explore their emotions and deal with any unresolved trauma. Through play, children can learn new coping mechanisms and how to redirect inappropriate behaviours.

Apart from her dream of making the world a better place for children, she loves to cycle, cook and be amazed by her three children and two dogs.
