Sometimes children and young people (and their families) may need extra support if they are finding it difficult to deal with or understand their emotions and/or behavior. Counselling children and young people involves helping the child to develop a positive attitude to life, recognize their strengths and express themselves. It does not involve making decisions for the child, imposing beliefs on them or preaching. Counselling may be provided to children and young people on their own, or it may be provided to a child as part of a family (family counselling).

Social Confidence Life Coach

In V5H 3Z7 - Nearby to Anmore.

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 Is your child reluctant to go to school, has trouble making friends, or seems withdrawn and lonely?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

Therapy and counselling for young children is a unique and delicate process. I have experience and expertise in working with young children in a safe, relaxed and healing way. I believe that children are highly resilient and intuitive and therapy can be very effective and rewarding for them. As an adjunct to my approach, I offer intensive support to parents in gaining understanding and insight into their child's behaviors, even if they are highly difficult to manage. I also welcome any and all families with children who have mental health diagnoses as I have expertise in that area as well. Contact me for a free consultation to see if I am the right fit for you and your child.

Master Therapeutic Counsellor, Registered Professional Counsellor and Registered Supervising Focusing Therapist and Trainer

In V4N 1R9 - Nearby to Anmore.

In my approach to children, children's development, and parenting I use the best most helpful parts that come out of years of work in this area: attachment parenting concepts (Neufeld), 'focusing' for awareness and communication (Gendlin), Barbara Colorosso's common sense and firmness, developmental stage awareness, much experience and practical sense. I connect well with children of all ages and understand parenting from the inside out. There is often so much that can be done that will bring improvement and relief.

Underlying many children's behavioural "problems" lies an emotional need - for connection; perhaps to be seen, heard, comforted, or protected. My approach to counselling young children is by supporting parents and caregivers, so that they can feel more secure in their ability to support their children. As a registered "Circle of Security" parenting program facilitator (and Mum of 3 busy kids), I believe that recognizing our children's emotional needs doesn't have to be as hard as it seems. Together we can bring your own needs and triggers into awareness, and practice new ways of responding that can rebuild and strengthen your connection to your kids - no matter how old they are!

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.

In V3H 2B4 - Nearby to Anmore.

Counselling for children helps develop their emotional intelligence and resiliency. In a safe, comfortable and fun environment, children learn to express and process their life situation and experiences. Through the therapeutic use of playing, art activities, pretending and role playing, children feel accepted and liked for who they are. They are encouraged to believe in themselves and to feel good about who that person is. Children also learn appropriate ways of communicating and interacting in their world and how to foster and build healthy relationships with others.

Registered Clinical Counselor / Registered Social Worker

In V3J 1S7 - Nearby to Anmore.

I have worked with many young children over the last 30 years and have developed tools to help them to express themselves. I encourage children to work through issues in a manner that is supportive yet enquiring, all the while allowing the child to lead. Young children are able to reap the benefits of brain training with Neurofeedback (NFB) and work through issues with desensitizing hurts through EMDR. As well, when utilizing the skill of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), I offer many child friendly approaches such as games and drawing and have weighted blanks and animals to help comfort children with sensory integration / over stimulation challenges. My office is child friendly.

In V2Y 1R7 - Nearby to Anmore.

The process of becoming an adult begins in childhood. The foundation for one's values and beliefs is begun when one is young. It is also a time to grow from dependence to independence and inter-dependence. In Children's therapy, my aim is to assist children to understand reasons for structure and rules in the home. They are also encouraged and given the tools to make good decisions.

I work with teens from ages 13 and up. Having raised 4 children my self I am very comfortable and hopefully knowledgable working with teens. Teenage years can be a very turbulant time for both the theens and their families. Working with teens I have whitnessed the anxiety and stress they often feel around such areas as peer pressure, friendships gone wrong, feeling lonely, unsafe sex ect. These teens , despite having loving and caring parents often tell no one about how they feel. The great benifit in counselling is that they "get it out" in a non destructive way..often avoiding overwhelming feelings that can lead to very impulsive and distructive acts.

Children are resilient. They have an amazing way of adapting to change in the world around them. When a child has lost their ability to adapt or is no longer able to cope and manage their world, a multitude of behaviors can manifest. This can be scary and frustrating for the parent or caregiver and can be equally difficult for the child. We understand and appreciate the struggles that children face today and how challenging parenting can be. We will work together to uncover the underlying issues and recreate harmony for both the child and/or parent. In a warm and understanding environment we will use a variety of techniques, customized to your child'd individual needs.

While I do not generally work exclusively with young children directly, I work extensively with parents of young children. My goal is to educate, guide, coach, and support caregivers as they try to sort out the emotional and behavioural struggles of the ones they care for. Primarily psychoeducational in nature, my aim is to help cargivers understand the workings of the developing brain and how best to interact with it to give the child the best chance at optimal development.

In V3M 3P6 - Nearby to Anmore.

I love working with children, we have fun with toys, colouring, art work, and games to help the child. This is called play therapy and it is different than any other kind of therapy. Children usually act out their emotions rather than talk about them as adults do. I usually meet with the parent(s) at the first appointment and then either later at that appointment or at the next appointment, I meet with the child and the parent and eventually work into play therapy. Often the child's play mirrors the anxiety or stress that the child is dealing with.Play therapy helps children get better, feel more secure and confident to be able to grow up happy and healthy.

Children love the non directive art and play therapy techniques I use. Children come to enjoy their sessions with me as I work to establish a relationship with them built on trust and positivity. Children are not pushed to open up but rather reveal their thoughts and feelings when they are ready. Often it takes several sessions to build the trust necessary for openness to happen.

Counselling or therapy with young children creates a healthy relationship between the parents and the children, as well as a healthy connection with other relationships such as peers and teachers. This type of counselling and therapy empowers children, improves their self-esteem, their ability to do well in school and any activity they may undertake in their life. It also helps to make them more resilient in life, to trust themselves and therefore able to make healthy choices without fear.

I have worked with young children my whole career. I love working with young children as I very much believe in early intervention and prevention. The earlier a young child receives treatment the higher the success rate! I began my career working at The Children's Foundation which is a residential treatment centre for behavioural and emotional issues. I learned so much and I have been able to transport that experience and knowledge to my private practise. I have also had training as a play therapist which is a wonderful tool to have!

When working with children it is important to treat them with respect, communicate clearly with them, and listen very well. Often, we find that a child's behaviour is a reflection of what is going on in the family dynamic. We look at what the child is reflecting back to the family. Also, we work closely with parents to support them with family dynamics and provide parenting techniques that may work well for their specific child.

I have worked with young children for the majority of my career, specifically in a school setting. My primary goal in working with young children is establishing a safe, caring, trusting and fun environment in which children are able to comfortably be able to clearly articulate their emotions and feelings. Helping young children become aware of their behaviors, feelings and emotions are often key in guiding them further, and implement coping mechanisms to help them manage their presenting concern.

Children are so precious to me, and because I have two of my own...I know how precious they are to you too. I work together with my specially trained (psychiatric dog) named Target, when I work with children. Not only does Target help a child to feel at ease, but there is something incredibly special that happens when a child is cuddled up to a dog with whom he feels both warmth and softness. It doesn't hurt either that 'Target' is a great intensive for children wanting to return. (Which is often a concern) Also my relaxed style, experience with working as a Youth Leader, and Directing Children's productions, gives me an edge on making sessions fun, hip and creative.
