I have worked with young children for about 10 years. I work from a family approach where the parents are involved. I like to involve parents in order to ensure strategies and parenting techniques are transferred from the therapy room to the home . You as the parent know your child best. Some of the approaches are: Theraplay, Art Therapy (drawing), Behavioral Mode.

I love working with children and am passionate about helping them grow into bright and confident young adults. I use play therapy, art therapy and music to help children get comfortable and feel safe, which in itself, is often therapeutic. In addition, I give importance to working with the parents, and keeping them in the loop, as I believe that this relationship is extremely important for the healthy development of the child.

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.

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.

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.

When we talk about mental health, we often don't consider the mental health of young children in our lives. Little ones cope with a lot though, significant changes in growth, changes in daily life, struggles in school, relationship dynamics with parents, siblings, and peers, and more. Help your child to learn to regulate their emotions and gain the tools for life long mental health.

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.

With very young children, we feel that it is more important to spend our time working with parents- helping to build their capacity and strengthen their parenting skills rather than having a psychologist work directly with a very young child. We coach parents and teach them new behaviour management strategies that they can implement at home.

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.

Although it’s called “play therapy”, it’s actually a specialized therapeutic approach that combines play and creative activities to help individuals explore their thoughts, emotions, and experiences. While it’s especially helpful for children, adults who find expressing themselves more challenging or who prefer creative or symbolic forms of communication can also benefit from play therapy. Why engage in play therapy? Taking good care of ourselves includes paying attention to the state of our mental health. Play therapy provides an opportunity for creative exploration of our feelings, and can help us become more attuned to them finding underlying themes and growing.

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.

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.
