|About Yvonne Weeseman
My name is Yvonne Weeseman and I am the founder of Paradisekids child centre.
Based on my professional knowledge and experience I feel it is a privilege to support children and adults on their inner journey to healing and wholeness. I enjoy using my creativity and insight while working with people.
Each time I witness a child or adult releasing old resistance and recognizing their essence, my heart is filled with gratitude.
From the various methods I use as a therapist, I choose the one which best supports the child and parents.
I believe parents and children know which healing path suits them best. Inside us, everything is present and inside you will find the way to healing and freedom. I offer a safe space and professional support to make this inner journey possible.
