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.

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.

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.

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.

Sasha Campbell, BA, MA Counselling Psychology

Registered Psychologist

In T6E 1Z1 - Nearby to Devon.

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.

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!

Children are experiencing serious mental health challenges early in life these days. Whether they have personality issues (low confidence/self esteem issues, need for control, perfectionism ideals) that make them more susceptible to stressful emotional moments or whether they are facing external life factors (school, family, friends, peer pressures, bullying issues) that result in a breakdown of their ability to function successfully, our children need just as much support as adults do. And it is only with the support and encouragement of the significant adults in their lives that our children can overcome these challenges and build the resiliency they need to grow into capable adults.

Research shows that Animal Assisted Therapy promotes attachment, empathy, self regulation, problem resolution & self-efficacy. Children need to feel secure for healthy development and to fulfill their potential as human beings; however, their are no guarantees this will happen. Children will often attach to an animal when people no longer feel safe. This positive relationship with the horse can be the bridge to a strong relationship with the therapist, caregivers and other adults in the child's world. Children are also naturally drawn to play- this is their "language" so to speak. It is also their way of healing. Horses are very social creatures and are by nature playful sentient beings.

Child Therapist

Janel Daugela, MC

Registered Provisional Psychologist

In T5N 3N8 - Nearby to Devon.

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.

In T5K 1C5 - Nearby to Devon.

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.

Through play and art therapy, I am often able to engage young children and explore their problematic thoughts and feelings. I take great pride in working with the individual strengths and weaknesses of children to help them better process difficult situations and change their behaviours. Supportive parenting strategies and psychoeducation are often vital to long-term success with children.

Although many practitioners work with young children it takes specialized training to be effective. In my view, it also takes a lot of love, care, and attention! A competent approach matched with genuine desire to help is what I offer. As a parent of grown children I understand the stress of parenting...and the desire to see our children thrive! Please feel free to ask for my help and I will provide you with the very best that I have.
