Childhood is a precious time in each persons life; yet children often experience challenges that are hard to understand and even harder to resolve. My approach to working with children is collaborative and caring. I value the opportunity to work with children towards a happy and fulfilling future. I work with parents, foster parents, and caregivers to provide counselling that integrates all aspects of their child's life. I want each child I see to have the opportunity to flourish, and I work with all areas of the child's environment to ensure flourishing is made possible.

My focus for young children is to work with their parents to develop parenting strategies. For direct work with children or to build attachments between child and parent, I work closely with other therapists in my office that specialize in these areas. In many cases, co-ordinating specific work with the parents while addressing the child's individual issues can have a large impact on the overall health of the family.

Registered Psychologist

In T5K 1C5 - Nearby to Bon Accord.

I love working with children and am passionate about helping them grow into bright and confident young adults. I use play therapy, art therapy and music to help children get comfortable and feel safe, which in itself, is often therapeutic. In addition, I give importance to working with the parents, and keeping them in the loop, as I believe that this relationship is extremely important for the healthy development of the child.

As children we acquire non-nurturing elements in our formative years we can either be raised in nurturing environments or non-nurturing environments. Regardless of which environment we were raised in there are always flaws that get in the way of us being adaptive or feeling like we’re unconditionally supported and loved. There can be themes such as a caregiver being critical or controlling, never being home, or having addictions.

In T5K 1C5 - Nearby to Bon Accord.

In my work with young children I use Play Therapy, incorporated with the integrative approach, in order to prevent or resolve psychological, social and behavioral challenges. During Play Therapy, the children are provided with a safe and nurturing environment, where they are empowered to freely use their natural healing potential. This results in their optimal growth and development.

Nexus Psychology, R.Psych.

Registered Psychologist

In T8A 6H2 - Nearby to Bon Accord.

With very young children, we feel that it is more important to spend our time working with parents- helping to build their capacity and strengthen their parenting skills rather than having a psychologist work directly with a very young child. We coach parents and teach them new behaviour management strategies that they can implement at home.

Loving, good-enough parents are the natural vehicles through which children learn to engage the world. When children are said to "need help," it is generally the case that their adult caregivers need help, too. Psychotherapists who work with children do well to engage parent figures in the process. The impact of therapy upon children is strongly influenced by the parent-child system. That said, children commonly encounter personal issues which their parents are unprepared to help with or manage. Childhood depression is among the most under-diagnosed medical conditions. Children who learn to effectively engage in therapy enjoy lifelong benefits from this important experience.

Child Therapist

Sasha Campbell, BA, MA Counselling Psychology

Registered Psychologist

In T6E 1Z1 - Nearby to Bon Accord.

After working in Children's Mental Health for many years, I have developed numerous styles and techniques for coaching children and youth. I typically start with play therapy or art therapy to make each child feel more comfortable during their sessions. Collaborative Problem Solving is typically the model I teach each child, in order to minimize conflict at home. This approach focuses on goals for the entire family and teaches optimal parenting techniques.

Child Therapist

Janel Daugela, MC

Registered Provisional Psychologist

In T5N 3N8 - Nearby to Bon Accord.

Most of my experience working with young children has been related to trauma. I find that children are incredibly resilient, and although they may struggle with language there are many ways to provide healing. I use interventions that involve creativity, providing a variety of avenues for the child to express his or her experience. I also use an EMDR with both children and adult clients. EMDR is an integrative approach to healing that allows for treatment to be tailored to the specific needs of the individual, while address the physical, emotional, and mental needs of the client. This approach allows healing to take place on all levels of functioning.

Tamara Hanoski, Ph.D, R.Psych

Registered Psychologist

In T5T 6M1 - Nearby to Bon Accord.

I work with children from the age of 3 to 17. While adolescents are able to engage appropriately in more traditional "talk therapy," younger children do not have the skills to verbally share their feelings or experiences. Instead, they will often work through their issues in more symbolic ways, such as through play. Different types of play are used, such as sandtray play, dolls or puppets, books, art, storytelling, and therapeutic board games. While the child plays, I ask questions and probe for more information, in an attempt to assist the child to share feelings, resolve difficulties, gain a sense of mastery, and problem solve in a healthy manner.

In T5L 1H7 - Nearby to Bon Accord.

Parenting is hard and there is so much conflicting information available that it is often even more hard to figure out what the 'best' advice is or what is even trustworthy. I'm not in the business of giving advice, particularly because all children, and all families are unique. However, I have been working with children and families in a variety of settings for over 10 years. By working together to seek a greater understanding of what children's distress is about we can often figure out the most compassionate and helpful approach helping them better manage their experiences.

Children are clearly different from adults, their therapy needs to be as well. Children, especially young ones, are not developmentally able to express their feelings through conversation like adults can. Therapy that allows children to share their thoughts, struggles and experiences in ways they have already mastered are much more effective than those that rely on verbal communication skills. Playtherapy, Art therapy, Sandtray and Theraplay allow a child's imagination to communicate for them. These kinds of modalities help children communicate their inner world in familiar ways, process big feelings and cope with difficult situations and behaviours, definitely a plus for the kiddos!
