Registered Christian Counsellor, Certified Professional Counsellor

In T2W 2V5 - Nearby to High River.

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.

In T2T 2Z2 - Nearby to High River.

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.

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 High River.

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 Is your child reluctant to go to school, has trouble making friends, or seems withdrawn and lonely?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.

In T2T 0A1 - Nearby to High River.

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.

Child Therapist

Carissa Muth, BSW, M.A. (Honours), RPsych

Registered Psychologist- Depression, Anxiety, and Trauma Counselling

In T2E 0S9 - Nearby to High River.

Children are a unique population in therapeutic treatment and require someone with the aptitude, personality, training and experience. I have experience in play therapy and will be gaining more training in June in order to gain even further knowledge about how to effectively treat children. Play is the language of children and as children play with the therapist they are able to express emotions that they don't yet have the ability to verbalize. They also can express any trauma they have experienced so that the therapist can add language to their pain and thereby process it. I rely on play therapy and attachment methods for the treatment of children.

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.

Tobias Mwandala, PhD, RSW

Registered Social Worker/Consultant

In T2P 3N3 - Nearby to High River.

Strength-based-approach and client-centered approach- are models I resonate with because of my personal belief that there is good in every human being regardless of social status, nationality and/or ethnicity. In my clinical practice, I listen and I’m warm and non-critical of my clients of all ages, children, youth and adults. I'm more conscientious and attentive to the way I ask questions. Children learn from adults, especially from parents. Thus, I teach parents healthy and effective parenting styles for children, preschoolers, teenagers and youth. Attending my counseling is beneficial--as I use real life examples in teaching parenting skills.

Psychopharmacologist

In T2H 2G4 - Nearby to High River.

Medication for ADHD (Ritalin etc.) is not just controversial in the social media; it often is a big and difficult decision for the parents of young children. Some say it is totally overprescribed, while others shy away from getting their children the help they need because of media hype, mostly unfounded. Dr Mervin (Paraklesis Counselling) can come alongside you, and as psychopharmacologist assist you in making the best evidence-based decision for the mental and emotional wellbeing of your child. If it’s you that needs the ‘sedative’ and not the child, he will tell you – the best interest of the child will always be the focus.

Clinical Social Worker

In T2N 3R7 - Nearby to High River.

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.

In T3E 5R6 - Nearby to High River.

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....
