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.

In T2W 2V5 - Nearby to Turner Valley.

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.

Registered Psychologist

In T3H 4H9 - Nearby to Turner Valley.

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.

In T3E 5R6 - Nearby to Turner Valley.

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.

Child Therapist

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

Registered Psychologist

In T1S 1J5 - Nearby to Turner Valley.

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.
