We have psychologists and counsellors who offer play, and art therapy to assist your child. Therapy can help your child who may be struggling at school, with friendships, adjusting to change, divorce and other difficulties. Art and Play therapy can be especially helpful with autistic, young children, and children and adolescents who struggle with articulating their feelings. Play and art therapy offer a non-verbal mode of expression. Through these treatment modalities children can learn new ways of problem solving, healthier ways of expressing themselves, develop empathy and respect for others.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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!

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
