Play is the language which most young people speak so I will include playful interactions to establish rapport and allow the person to express and explore their world with me. My approach may include puppet play, games, and symbolic story-telling. usually I will meet with the parent first to find out about the backfround, history, and perceived difficulties in the child's life.

With the exception of abuse or extreme attachment trauma, the support I can provide for young children is directed at the parents. As young children are rarely in control of their environments, and are unlikely to have developed the appropriate Executive, Language, Emotional Regulation, Cognitive Flexibility or Social Skills for talk therapy (even augmented with play, art and music), parents are supported in collaboratively working to help develop these skills in their children, instilling perceptions of capability, purpose and significance, and personal power. Parents are encouraged to be kind and firm, emphasizing respect and connection.

Using my unique approach, I work with young children within the context of their family's involvement to work towards the goals they have identified. My approach allows young children and their families identify the issues of concern and apply the use of consequences and environmental accommodations as the primary ways to address those issues. Consequences and environmental accommodations provide opportunities for young children and their families to experience safe, age appropriate and effective ways to address their issues of concern.

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.

Having worked as an elementary school teacher for over a decade, I understand the struggles young children go through at home and at school. I work with children to overcome their anxieties and struggles through therapy not medicine. This often involves parental support at home to reinforce the therapy that happens during sessions. Children are very resilient and can regain their sense of balance in life more readily and quickly than adults!

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.

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!

Therapy for young children is about helping them interpret and communicate their thoughts, feelings, and emotions in a positive and constructive manner. The expression of negative or powerful feelings are channelled most effectively through play and art therapy with young children. Play therapy is a slower process than talk therapy, but it is a transformative outlet for a child's inner life and can help them identify the roots of problems such as anger. The therapist themselves are key aspects in therapy as their reaction to a child is way of validating, shaping, modelling, and teaching positive lessons and sending powerful messages.

I help parents deal with young children in a way that brings more loving and acceptance into their family. I often ask, what is your young child trying to tell you by his or her acting out or misbehaviour or intense emotions. In this way, we can explore together how the child's needs can be met in more positive ways, and how you can model more helpful behaviour and feelings to the child.
