Registered psychologist

In T4C 2B5 - Nearby to Didsbury.

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.

Registered Prov. Psychologist

In T3B 5K2 - Nearby to Didsbury.

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.

Registered Psychologist - ONLINE COUNSELLING

In T4B 1S1 - Nearby to Didsbury.

Keystone Child and Family Therapy offers specialized counseling in play therapy for children ages 2-18. Play therapy is a child-centered approach to counseling based on developmental principles, allowing a child to engage in the counselling process in their most natural form of communication: play. Play therapy is an effective form of therapy for a variety of issues including: behavioral issues, social-emotional issues, trauma, abuse, grief and loss, developmental concerns, autism, ADHD, transitional issues, divorce and separation, attachment concerns, adoption, etc. Parents are considered important partners in the process and so family therapy is also used in combination with play therapy.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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.

Social Confidence Life Coach

In T2L 1E6 - Nearby to Didsbury.

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.
