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.

Social Confidence Life Coach

In V5H 3Z7 - Nearby to Bowen Island.

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 Is your child reluctant to go to school, has trouble making friends, or seems withdrawn and lonely?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

I work with parents to find solutions to parenting challenges. I coach parents in ways to support and help their children cope with emotional, behavioural, cognitive and physical difficulties. I draw on the wisdom and experience of parents, who know their child best, and work with them to ease the child's suffering and create more harmonious family relationships.

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.

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.

Registered Clinical Counsellor, Clinical Traumatologist

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.

Brandys Evans, RCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

In V7M 2K1 - Nearby to Bowen Island.

Counselling young children is a delicate task. At this age, the child cannot verbally express how they feel, what they think, or why they behave in certain ways. Providing a space where a child feels comfortable enough to express through play and other limited verbal interactions increase the strength of the child's developing self-esteem.

Tanya Heal, M.Ed., RCC

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!

Counsellor and Art Therapist

In V5T 3E3 - Nearby to Bowen Island.

With young children who require support and counselling, we employ very specialized techniques depending on the child and their presenting concern. We support children in expressing their feelings, and will either talk or use art making tools, or employ both in this important first step. We also employ arts activities and play in all sessions with children to best engage them and integrate their learning. Art and play are wonderful tools to reach and connect to children.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

In V6C 1H2 - Nearby to Bowen Island.

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.

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.
