Jennifer Jantzen, MSW, RSW, RTC, BCN, RCC

Registered Clinical Counselor / Registered Social Worker

In V5G 1V8 - Nearby to Bowen Island.

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.

Registered Clinical Counselor

In V5Z 1H1 - Nearby to Bowen Island.

With young children I use a combination of art, imagination, play, and talk therapy to help them express their feelings and discover creative solutions to their problems. They will learn new coping strategies to deal with changes and situations over which they have little control. I also guide parents to learn new ways of supporting and relating to their children that encourage their sense of security, growth, and well-being.

Registered Psychologist

In V6H 3K2 - Nearby to Bowen Island.

In my practice, I work with preschoolers, school-age children, teens, and young adults. I conduct psychoeducational and neuropsychological assessments for learning disabilities, giftedness, ADD and ADHD, organization problems, memory difficulties, developmental delays, FASD, head injuries, and other challenges. I also provide Cogmed training for attention and working memory difficulties. Cogmed can help children with ADD, ADHD, learning disabilities, and executive functioning problems. Cogmed can help your child to improve their short-term memory, stay on task, and concentrate in school. If you’re concerned about your child’s learning, I look forward to hearing from you.

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.

Registered Clinical Counsellor

In V5H 4H2 - Nearby to Bowen Island.

I have over twenty years of experience in working with children. I understand that children process information at different rates and often in different ways than adults. My Counselling approach is gentle, warm and age and stage appropriate. I help young children and elementary-aged children to manage their emotions, build friendships, organize their school life, improve their academics, cope with anxiety, understand death, grief and loss, as well as deal with family dynamics e.g., separation/ divorce. I use play, art, narrative and cognitive behavioural therapy as some of my therapeutic tools. I really enjoy working with my young clients and seeing how happy they become!

In V5H 4H2 - Nearby to Bowen Island.

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.

Heidi Sheehan, M.A., R.C.C.
Child Therapist

Heidi Sheehan, M.A., R.C.C.

Registered Clinical Counsellor

In V0N 1V1 - Nearby to Bowen Island.

Heidi has provided child therapy for many years and has a counselling room on the Sunshine Coast, B.C. equipped to work with young children. Lacking the language skills of adults, young children use non-verbal forms of communication. Through expressive therapy, children can heal from their distress without having to talk about it in an adult way. When working with children, Heidi finds it beneficial to also offer sessions to the parents, as they often feel overwhelmed or distressed, themselves, by the emotions of their children. Parents benefit from compassionate support in addition to acquiring practical tools they can adopt at home to supplement the healing of their children.

In V7L 3V8 - Nearby to Bowen Island.

Children need to feel that they are an important part of the family. A better understanding of your child and his/her unique desire to possess a specific “place” in the family will help to unravel how his/her beliefs about who he/she is may be affecting their reality and subsequent behaviours. Children may not possess the tools required to problem-solve effectively thus will turn to acting out. Providing a child with effective problem-solving techniques, self-esteem, trust and a sense of being understood is important for inner development.

In V5Z 1C5 - Nearby to Bowen Island.

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, like adults, can be affected by anxiety, stress, pressure and self-esteem issues. It can be very challenging for children to balance a busy lifestyle of sports, school, friends, and personal growth. It can also be very challenging for parents to watch and support their child as they struggle. We use child play therapy as a great tool to support young children in expressing their inner thoughts and feelings, while also creating tools and strategies for how they can cope with things better. We will also work with the parents, as needed to better understand their child and learn tools on how to support them.

At Bach Counselling, we are not set up with the necessary play area and tools required to work with young children. We do however, work with parents dealing with challenging social and emotional issues at home and/or at school. Parents come to Bach Counselling for parent coaching and guidance in addressing behavioural and emotional challenges they are having with their children. Often parents come in together to ensure that they are working collaboratively with the most effective tools and skills for their children. We also give workshops and talks on parenting strategies for successful parenting.

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.
