Retained Primitive Reflexes are the keys to understanding childs learning and behaviour issues, and the treatment of these forms are a major part of The Child Centre Method ®.

Barry has trained with Dr Alweena Awan, the Founder and International Director of The Child Centre Method – Learning and Behaviour Improvement Program ® (CCM). CCM is the culmination of over 20 years of experience of working with children, as teacher, researcher and therapist.


When a Primitive Reflex has been integrated, the changes in child behaviour are always noticeable. You will have removed several layers of stress from your child. As a result your child will be:

  • Calmer and more stable

  • Happier

  • Less shy

  • Less aggressive

  • Improved coordination

  • Have improved spelling, writing and comprehension

  • Have better coordination

Primitive and Postural Reflexes are programmed automatic movements which develop in Utero for our survival.


An example, is the Moro reflex, which allows a newborn to take its first breath. Problems arise if the reflex is retained, as the body is held in ‘fight or flight’ mode. As a baby grows up, this primitive reflex is replaced by newly learned movements, in a process of integration.


However, when the process of integration is not complete, the reflex will have an adverse effect on a child’s emotional well-being as well as how the child learns and behaves.


Barry works with children and teens specialising, particularly with those experiencing anxiety, low motivation, anger, frustration, concentration issues and sleeping problems.












​​​​​​​A comprehensive assessment is carried out on the first consultation. This will give a clear picture of what is going on for each child from a physical literacy perspective. Very gentle kinesiology and craniosacral techniques are used to integrate each reflex. Most children find it a very relaxing experience and usually "feel lighter" or a little tired after the session. This is very natural as it is stress leaving the body and the nervous system begins to relax.


Each client will receive a specific daily home movement programme to further deepen each session.

Barry is on hand to act as a continuous support in assisting your child to feel CONFIDENT, RELAXED & HAPPIER from the inside out!

"I brought my son to Barry as he had been wetting the bed for the last 4 years. He's 10 now so it becoming more of an issue. Thankfully after a couple of sessions he no longer wets the bed and he's also calmer & relaxed in himself"
