Roslyn Hansen-Henze, BSW, MA Counseling

Registered Christian Counsellor, Certified Professional Counsellor

In T2W 2V5 - Nearby to Rocky View County.

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.

Val Kendall, Ph.D., M.A., Dip. Ed., C.C.C.

Registered Psychologist

In T2R 1E7 - Nearby to Rocky View County.

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.

In T2T 0A3 - Nearby to Rocky View County.

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.

In T3E 5R6 - Nearby to Rocky View County.

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....

Alexandra Vartosu, M.C. (Psych.)

Registered Prov. Psychologist

In T3G 5G8 - Nearby to Rocky View County.

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.

Mervin Van der Spuy, DTh-Counselling, BSc-Pharmacy

Psychopharmacologist

In T2H 2G4 - Nearby to Rocky View County.

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.

Jeannine Crofton, M. A. Counselling Psychology.

Registered Psychologist

In T2P 0B3 - Nearby to Rocky View County.

I can help your child with their transition to separation and divorce. I have worked with children as young as seven years old and with adult children who continue to struggle to make sense of the transitions in their families. Children at times become fearful and anxious as a result of school issues, family transitions or grief and loss. I understand developmental stages and how that capacity grows as they age.

Child Therapist

Bow Valley Counselling, BA, BSW, MSW, RSW

Clinical Social Worker

In T2N 3R7 - Nearby to Rocky View County.

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.

Nurse Specialist, Family Counsellor

In T2T 3S9 - Nearby to Rocky View County.

Children struggle with a variety of mental health concerns, including externalizing behaviours (tantrums, angry outbursts, aggression), anxiety, post-traumatic stress, and ADHD. Utilizing narrative, CBT and play therapy techniques, your children will gain insight into their own reactions and behaviours, and ways of communicating distress to caregivers. A significant parent and family therapy component empowers caregivers and families to help children live their best lives.

Child Therapist

Cheryl Placsko, MA, R.Psych

Registered Psychologist

In T3H 4H9 - Nearby to Rocky View County.

I work with children as young a five years of age and find that it is necessary to have parents' actively participate in therapy with their child. Children typically respond well to therapy when they understand that they are not the problem and they can see that their parents are learning and trying new skills and strategies too. Children are developmentally primed to learn new things with the right skills and strategies they make great progress.
