Many times, child therapists overdo the family system in their quest to seek effective solutions for emotional, learning or behavioral concerns with young children. And many times doctors overpathologize issues that shouldn’t be medicated necessarily. This leaves parents wondering what is the best route for their child? Introducing brainwave optimization technology. A fast, effective, natural, and less expensive way to allow your child's brain to make the optimizing changes it desires to make---on its own! Without any external force, opinion, medication, diagnostic, etc. Contact email@example.com or 877-606-6161.

Working with children first needs to build trust. Spontaneous art is encouraged. No psychotherapy takes place, but it will be replaced by play in-between the art. Questions in a curious manner will be asked about images in the art but in a narrative form [story form] in order to discover and uncover crucial keys to the existing problem. Different kinds of art materials would be provided especially to find an art medium that will suit that particular child is important. Work towards having some kind of family support and understanding for the benefit of the child.

Counselling can be intimidating for children because of fear that something is wrong with them. My approach is to build trust quickly so that the child feels safe with me. Role playing can be very helpful to use with children as is art therapy to help them communicate what is really going on for them. When using art therapy I find it is a nice distraction in a situation where they might not feel comfortable to communicate how they feel, art is a great vehicle to use for ones expression. Children are very resilient and I find that sessions with children and their guardian(s) prove to be highly successful within a relatively short period of time.

Children need to feel that they are an important part of the family. A better understanding of your child and his/her unique desire to possess a specific “place” in the family will help to unravel how his/her beliefs about who he/she is may be affecting their reality and subsequent behaviours. Children may not possess the tools required to problem-solve effectively thus will turn to acting out. Providing a child with effective problem-solving techniques, self-esteem, trust and a sense of being understood is important for inner development.

Therapy and counselling for young children is a unique and delicate process. I have experience and expertise in working with young children in a safe, relaxed and healing way. I believe that children are highly resilient and intuitive and therapy can be very effective and rewarding for them. As an adjunct to my approach, I offer intensive support to parents in gaining understanding and insight into their child's behaviors, even if they are highly difficult to manage. I also welcome any and all families with children who have mental health diagnoses as I have expertise in that area as well. Contact me for a free consultation to see if I am the right fit for you and your child.
