Marriage and Family Therapy, Registered Clinical Counsellors

208 478 Bernard Avenue, Kelowna, British Columbia

Children and adolescents successfully meet most of the challenges posed by the various stages of their development. They also have incredible resiliency in the face of challenging environments and life issues. At the same time they are, however, very aware and sensitive to the stress in family life and their environments. When having difficulty coping, adolescent distress can manifest itself through difficulties in learning, relationships and in emotional & behavioural development. Children have less experiences, fewer coping skills and less control over their environment. They also have difficulty describing emotional problems. Distress can manifest in such ways as irritability, sleeping or eati....

Wanda Sexton, NEON Counselling

Registered Clinical Counsellor

#112-3121 Hill Road, Lake Country, British Columbia

Young children too need to be heard, understood and sometimes have that special place where someone will listen who is not in their daily life. I provide a safe environment that is fun and geared towards the younger generations. By using age appropriate information, games, books, I can work with your young child to enhance their mental wellness within the home, school and with friends.

Kelowna, British Columbia

Having young children and problems surrounding children can both result from distress in relationships and precipitate distress. Support in addressing these issues can have a signifiacant positive impact on overall relationship functioning. The fact that relationships are one of our primary coping mechanisms multiplies the potential distress when these are present as it impacts the very mechanisms we use to cope.

Child Therapist

Jenelle Kildaw, MSW, RSW, RYT, RMT

Registered Social Worker, Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT200), Registered Reiki Master (IARP)

#214-3001 Tutt Street, Kelowna , British Columbia

Working with young children over the course of my career has been my passion! I see the benefits of starting grief, loss and trauma work from a young age as grief and trauma due to grief is cumulative and becomes compacted as we age. EMDR, Expressive Play Therapy and The Way of the Heart are a few of my preferred methods to use with children. I also believe that working with the child's supports and family unit is one way to ensure success as together they have the support to reach their goals.

Child Therapist

Patti Langlais, M.A, MPCC, CCHt

Registered Counsellor, Master Practitioner Clinical Counsellor

5018 Treadgold Crt, Kelowna, British Columbia

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.

Child Therapist

Amy Litster, RPCC

Registered Professional Counsellor

#202 - 385 Glenmore Road, Kelowna, British Columbia

Children can be complex little creatures. They don't have the skills to fully communicate how they feel the way the feel, and why they feel the way we feel. As a parent it is your job to help them learn this; but how do you do that? Parents often don't realize that they are they key to their children's mental health. They are their advocates. Interactive Counselling helps kids by giving them a person to talk to so they won't get in trouble, and offers parents a safe place to turn when they are experiencing frustration with their child.

Child Therapist

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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.

Lisa can also help parents and children get along better by working with both parents and their children.

Child Therapist

Annette Adkin, RPC, Psychotherapist

Registered Professional Counsellor

787 Torrs. Crt., Kelowna, British Columbia

I am a psychotherapist who has worked in community agencies serving children, youth and families for over 25 yrs. No matter the origins of a child's difficulties, the most effective way to work them out is in the parent-child relationship. In therapy Annette will provide a safe, non-judgemental environment to help parents apply principles of attachment to strengthen their parent-child relationship. This would include exploring ways to overcome the difficulties they have been experiencing as well as taking steps towards their family's goals.

Inside of each of us is a child. Corny I know however if we can approach the children who will one day be our leaders we will bring healing to the child in us and the next generation. Empathize with everyone. Man, woman and child. That is my framework and philosophy. Children and teens/young adults are our legacy. Let us treat them well - with compassion, acceptance, respect and ultimately Hope.

Child Therapist

Dennis Leclair, B.A., B.Ed., M.Sc.

Personal Development and Relationship Counsellor

347 Leon Avenue, Suite 210 , Kelowna, British Columbia

Early identification of potential developmental and behavioural concerns or strengths is extremely important to the success of your child. Often, children move through elementary school, displaying behaviours that are not identified and may lead to learning disabilities, attentional concerns, social or emotional difficulties and poor academic performance. My counselling sessions involving young children focus on evaluation and assessment of the child's social, emotional, physical and cognitive abilities. This information is often gathered through observation of the child in his/her learning environment, consultation with instructors, parents and teachers and formal assessment sessions.
