I set up play environments so children can feel safe, express themselves, and get the attunement and support they need to make sense of their own experiences. Within the safety of the play setting, and the reflective listening, guidance and validation, children can build skills, confidence, and move through their grief and loss easier. Figurines, montages, sand trays, Role play, art work, music, experiences with nature are some of the the tools used in play therapy. Sometimes it is the parents that need the support to strengthen their parenting structure, so they have more time and energy to enjoy their children. Getting past hurt and resistance behaviour builds love and trust.

Children do not typically process their problems using talk therapy. Using Sandplay therapy, Art, Bibliotherapy and other play techniques children can begin to process and make sense of their world and naturally, through play can begin to process some of their probems. My room is set up in a child friendly way with intentionally placed therapeutic toys. My office is a place where children feel safe, nurtured and cared for.

Children hold a unique view of the world that is often very different from that of an adult. Understanding their vision is important when we strive to understand their emotions and behaviours. My work with children ranges, depending on their age and cognitive abilities, but the goal of gaining insight into how they view the world remains the same.

We have a play room set up for working with children. My approach is to meet the child at their level through art, talk, and play. Children may also be invited to sessions for family work as they are part of the family system. Some of the approaches informing my work with with children are Family Systems Therapy, Response-Based Approach, Narrative Therapy, and Play Therapy.

Registered social worker

Ferne uses play therapy to help young children express themselves, work out issues in their lives, learn boundaries, be more confidence and gain a positive self image. Play therapy works good with children who have behaviour challenges, learning challenges and developmental issues. Children learn through play therapy to work through traumatic events in the past and present. They learn healthy boundaries in a trust worthy accepting environment. They led the play and develop confidence which carries over to their daily lives. Play therapy helps many non verbal children express their needs and stress in their lives.

REGISTERED CLINICAL COUNSELLOR (BCACC #11188)

Smiling Spirit Counselling #503 235 First Avenue, Kamloops, British Columbia V2C 3J4 | 2503201905

I strongly believe that counselling children requires special strategies beyond just talking and listening. In my practice I use play therapy, sand tray therapy and therapeutic story telling. Using all of the expressive arts helps children express their feeling when they aren't able or just don't feel like talking. As a certified trauma consultant trained with the Institute for Trauma and Loss in Children, I have the skills and experience to counsel children of all ages in a comfortable, nurturing environment. I enjoy working with children and as a result they enjoy working with me.

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.
