Registered Psychologist

In T1S 1J5 - Nearby to High River.

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.

Many times, child therapists overdo the family system in their quest to seek effective solutions for emotional, learning or behavioral concerns with young children.

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.

In T1S 1B3 - Nearby to High River.

My work with children ages 12-18 has been extensive. I have experience working at the Calgary Board of Education, a child psychology center in Calgary and at a residential treatment facility with complex youth. I work collaboratively with youth to develop a strong therapeutic alliance which helps with goal development in order to help improve their relationships, to understand and maintain good mental health and to manage life responsibilities. The child is my client but I understand that they operate in a larger system of support. I often use solution-focused therapy and motivational interviewing with this population.

Children often tell their feelings through their actions. Counselling can help children learn to sort through their emotions and begin to express them in healthier ways. In therapy they can learn coping strategies that they can use for a lifetime. When working with young children, their guardians are an active part of their therapy and may develop new strategies to help support their child through difficulties and increase their child's confidence in being able to handle life's joys and struggles in healthier ways.
