Shrink Mama was developed in 2017 with the objective of providing resources for clients which can be used outside of psychotherapy.
Reabetsoe Buys is a registered and experienced Counselling Psychologist who is also a parent to an adventurous little boy. Through her experience of working with children using play therapy, and offering parental guidance, she decided to create material aimed at assisting parents in supporting their children in the home environment. The aim, of course, is not to replace psychotherapy but to rather compliment the process.
“Taking it back to the basics” refers to the idea that the process of assisting our children in developing various skills need not be too complicated. There are simple and straightforward techniques which parents can implement in their interactions with their own children, which can assist them in exploring their emotions and cope more effectively with them.
