Nurse Specialist, Family Counsellor

In T2T 3S9 - Nearby to Airdrie.

Children struggle with a variety of mental health concerns, including externalizing behaviours (tantrums, angry outbursts, aggression), anxiety, post-traumatic stress, and ADHD. Utilizing narrative, CBT and play therapy techniques, your children will gain insight into their own reactions and behaviours, and ways of communicating distress to caregivers. A significant parent and family therapy component empowers caregivers and families to help children live their best lives.

Social Confidence Life Coach

In T2L 1E6 - Nearby to Airdrie.

Is your child bullied or isolated from others? Is your child reluctant to go to school, has trouble making friends, or seems withdrawn and lonely? Many children have trouble with self confidence, anxiety or social skills. Improving self esteem, emotional regulation, and social skills deficits in the younger years reduces difficulties later. We all want the best for our children, and as a parent myself I know how it can hurt to watch your child suffer and not know how to help. Find out how your child can be helped by in-person counselling, online coaching, or online educational programs.

Children are just little people. They hear what you hear, they see what you see and, though differently, they understand and their little hearts get broken too. When little hearts get broken they need a safe place where they can come and, right along side of mom, learn what it means for both of you to care for their heart. Come, and learn how our Christian counselling and play therapy can both heal your child's heart and empower you to continue that healing.

Alexandra Vartosu, M.C. (Psych.)

Registered Prov. Psychologist

In T3G 5G8 - Nearby to Airdrie.

In today's world, children encounter a great deal of stress, on multiple fronts: academic performance, high achievement standards, heavy scheduling, peer pressure, bombarded by media (TV, Internet, Messaging), as well as family tension. When they don't have adequate solutions to help them cope with their stress, they tend to act out, or give up, or get into unhealthy behaviours. In working with me, I can offer them a non-judgmental sympathetic ear, as well as strategies that can help them make wiser decisions, be aware of their strengths, deal effectively with stress, encourage hope and optimism, develop tangible skills to navigate their world, and take care of their mind and body.

In T2E 6P6 - Nearby to Airdrie.

Usually children are seen in the context of being seen with their main caregivers (usually parents). Helping the caregivers to be able to overcome areas they struggle with as a part of helping their children can be the most effective help for the children. As the caregivers overcome their struggles they can be in a better space to help their children. However, sometimes the help for the children needs to be provided at the same time as help is being given for the caregivers. Help for the children is then provided and the caregivers may observe how the help is given to be able to implement some of the techniques themselves.

Cheryl Placsko, MA, R.Psych

Registered Psychologist

In T3H 4H9 - Nearby to Airdrie.

I work with children as young a five years of age and find that it is necessary to have parents' actively participate in therapy with their child. Children typically respond well to therapy when they understand that they are not the problem and they can see that their parents are learning and trying new skills and strategies too. Children are developmentally primed to learn new things with the right skills and strategies they make great progress.

Children receiving therapy with Lurline will benefit from advanced training in a number of play and creative arts strategies, as well as parent-child attachment. Play methods are more naturally designed to assist children with processing their emotional difficulties. Children feel more comfortable dealing with their strong emotions using play and art. The expectation of working through difficult themes using traditional talk therapies that were never designed with children in mind is rarely successful. Parents who bring their children in are kept informed, given suggestions for how best to support their child, and often may be asked to become involved in therapy sessions to improve success.

Young children often have difficulty expressing their thoughts and feelings using language, especially if they have experienced trauma. Difficulties can result in disruptive behaviors. In my custom built play therapy rooms, children are able to explore the underlying issues that have resulted in these behaviors and together we can develop their skills to express themselves in more acceptable ways. Parenting young children can stressful. You may find yourself feeling guilty about yelling at your child and wondering what are the long-term impacts? I can guide you in understanding your child's behavior, build a stronger relationship, and to raise happy, successful children.

Occasionally a child's response to life's pressures may become severe, and the parents' attempts to help their child may be unsuccessful. Children who have experienced considerable change in their lives or who have survived traumatic events need to express and understand their feelings. Stress related to a major life transition such as parental divorce may be impairing a child’s ability to cope and function. Separation anxiety, life-threatening medical problems, and repeat encounters with bullying are common difficulties for young children entering therapy. Through the therapeutic use of play, children are given the opportunity to express their feelings naturally, and safely, thus enabling the....

In T2R 1E7 - Nearby to Airdrie.

Dr. Val usually has no problem engaging with children. She taught for many years before entering counselling, which was a natural for her, moving from physical education teacher to play therapist. She likes to draw on filial (means family member) play therapy and transfer her skills to the parent(s) so they can become the therapeutic partner for their children. Her reasoning is that she, herself will only be acquainted with each child for but a short time but that the parent will be there for life. Dr. Val is a fully qualified Play Therapist certified in Canada and the USA.
