Have you noticed your child behaving distracted, zoning out, or acting up? They may be having difficulties adjusting to school, or are distracted with learning from home. Sometimes, it can feel overwhelming to understand your child’s needs, or what might be going on in their lives. Getting support for your child as a parent can feel difficult and challenging. For some issues or topics, your child can feel comfortable working with a professional who can help build safety and a space to express their thoughts and emotions. I have experience working with children between the ages 10 to 18, and can help your child feel safe and heard. Feel free to reach out for a free consult, and to learn more

I help young children using cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), a research-based approach in which I am certified. Just as I help older children and adults change their thinking and behaviours to address their issues, I help young children do the same by teaching CBT skills in a child-friendly manner. Parents help me to help their children.

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.

Young people, like adults, experience stress. It can come from a variety of sources including doing well in school, making and sustaining friendships, or managing perceived expectations from their parents, teachers, or coaches. Some stress can be positive in that it provides the energy to tackle a big test, presentation, or sports event. Too much stress, however, can create unnecessary hardship and challenge. Adults can sometimes be unaware when their children or teens are experiencing overwhelming feelings of stress. Tuning into emotional or behavioral cues is important in identifying potential problems and working with your young person to provide guidance and support to successfully work throu....

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 kevin@kevinflemingphd.com or 877-606-6161.

Registered Psychologist

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.

Having young children and problems surrounding children can both result from distress in relationships and precipitate distress. Support in addressing these issues can have a signifiacant positive impact on overall relationship functioning. The fact that relationships are one of our primary coping mechanisms multiplies the potential distress when these are present as it impacts the very mechanisms we use to cope.

Is your teen struggling? Are they having trouble thriving in school, at home, or in their relationships? Do they need someone outside the family they can talk to? I’m Tim, and I help young people navigate the complex world of being a teenager. With me, young people can expect therapy grounded in respect, encouragement, humor, as well as evidence-based techniques. Whether it be anxiety, relationships, anger, or family issues, I work with teens to find out the root causes of their mental health challenges, provide a trusting and empathic ear, and find solutions that work for them and their family. ***Please note - I only work with kids ages 13 and up.

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.

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.

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....

The Healing Space, 1407 10St. SW,, Calgary, Alberta T2R 1E7 | 403 278 7305

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.

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.

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.
