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.

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.

Psychopharmacologist

In T2H 2G4 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

Medication for ADHD (Ritalin etc.) is not just controversial in the social media; it often is a big and difficult decision for the parents of young children. Some say it is totally overprescribed, while others shy away from getting their children the help they need because of media hype, mostly unfounded. Dr Mervin (Paraklesis Counselling) can come alongside you, and as psychopharmacologist assist you in making the best evidence-based decision for the mental and emotional wellbeing of your child. If it’s you that needs the ‘sedative’ and not the child, he will tell you – the best interest of the child will always be the focus.

Val Kendall, Ph.D., M.A., Dip. Ed., C.C.C.

Registered Psychologist

In T1S 1J5 - Nearby to Black Diamond.

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.

Early experiences influences a child's internal and external development. Early separation, medical treatments, difficult temperaments, family conflict, or traumas impact a child's mental, emotional, physical, and relational health. A child's brain has needs to meet and learns to cope through adaptive or maladaptive techniques. I help parents, families, and children of all ages meet their needs in healthy ways, develop or repair secure attachments, and promote regulation, coping, attention, social success and academic proficiency.
