Child Therapist

Fern Whitfield, RPCC

Registered Professional Counsellor

116, 246 Martin Street, Penticton, British Columbia

I believe that every parent strives to do the best they can with the resources available to them at any given time. It's easy to loose perspective of a problem when you are right in the middle of it. This can also effect your confidence and ability to make decisions that are in the best interest of your family. Social pressures can also add to the stress of "getting it right". I believe that every parent has the skills, ability and love that is needed. Parent consultation differs from family counselling, as it does not involve the children. My job will be to assist you in getting back into the parenting position that is required for you to do your most important work. You are your child's best bet! Every family is different, unique and special...(view profile to read more)

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.

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.
