Health and illness

Cristine helps children cope with a variety of chronic and terminal illnesses. Children who are chronically and terminally ill often have difficulties with their body integrity. Sometimes children have to undergo difficult treatments and procedures that can be aided by play therapy. A child psychologist usually equips children to change their perception of their illness and treatments and face medical procedures with positive feelings. A child is helped with expressing their emotions. Children are not expected to always have positive feelings, as it is the repression of emotions that contributes to discomfort and increased stress levels.  Cristine has a special interest in chronic illnesses such as asthma, diabetes and HIV.
