Jenna Purcell, MSc, CCC

Social Confidence Life Coach

In V5H 3Z7 - Nearby to Pitt Meadows.

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 Is your child reluctant to go to school, has trouble making friends, or seems withdrawn and lonely?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

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.

In V3H 4G7 - Nearby to Pitt Meadows.

Children love the non directive art and play therapy techniques I use. Children come to enjoy their sessions with me as I work to establish a relationship with them built on trust and positivity. Children are not pushed to open up but rather reveal their thoughts and feelings when they are ready. Often it takes several sessions to build the trust necessary for openness to happen.

While I do not generally work exclusively with young children directly, I work extensively with parents of young children. My goal is to educate, guide, coach, and support caregivers as they try to sort out the emotional and behavioural struggles of the ones they care for. Primarily psychoeducational in nature, my aim is to help cargivers understand the workings of the developing brain and how best to interact with it to give the child the best chance at optimal development.

Registered Psychologist, Registered Marriage and Family Therapist

In V3L 1B1 - Nearby to Pitt Meadows.

I am a registered family therapist and strongly believe in working with young children in the family context. Family therapy has been demonstrated to be an efficient method for handling behavioural problems, normal life transitions, child's difficulty regulating emotion and so on. This is a collaborative process in which family members and the therapist work together in order to support the young child's development and their desired changes. Family therapy work can often be accomplished in a fewer number of 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.

Cognitive Behavioral Marriage, Individual Therapist and Life Coach

In V3S 0V4 - Nearby to Pitt Meadows.

Children are so precious to me, and because I have two of my own...I know how precious they are to you too. I work together with my specially trained (psychiatric dog) named Target, when I work with children. Not only does Target help a child to feel at ease, but there is something incredibly special that happens when a child is cuddled up to a dog with whom he feels both warmth and softness. It doesn't hurt either that 'Target' is a great intensive for children wanting to return. (Which is often a concern) Also my relaxed style, experience with working as a Youth Leader, and Directing Children's productions, gives me an edge on making sessions fun, hip and creative.

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.

By creating a playful atmosphere work is done in the context of having fun and amusement. I use mini figures/toys and pebbles/stones of different shape and size to invite children to create their own 'internal landscape' on specific topics, as well as take part in 'sculpting exercises', where they can easily visualize and demonstrate different roles and positions within a family system.

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.

Registered Clinical Counsellor

In V3M 3P6 - Nearby to Pitt Meadows.

I love working with children, we have fun with toys, colouring, art work, and games to help the child. This is called play therapy and it is different than any other kind of therapy. Children usually act out their emotions rather than talk about them as adults do. I usually meet with the parent(s) at the first appointment and then either later at that appointment or at the next appointment, I meet with the child and the parent and eventually work into play therapy. Often the child's play mirrors the anxiety or stress that the child is dealing with.Play therapy helps children get better, feel more secure and confident to be able to grow up happy and healthy.

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.

Master Therapeutic Counsellor, Registered Professional Counsellor and Registered Supervising Focusing Therapist and Trainer

In V4N 1R9 - Nearby to Pitt Meadows.

In my approach to children, children's development, and parenting I use the best most helpful parts that come out of years of work in this area: attachment parenting concepts (Neufeld), 'focusing' for awareness and communication (Gendlin), Barbara Colorosso's common sense and firmness, developmental stage awareness, much experience and practical sense. I connect well with children of all ages and understand parenting from the inside out. There is often so much that can be done that will bring improvement and relief.

The process of becoming an adult begins in childhood. The foundation for one's values and beliefs is begun when one is young. It is also a time to grow from dependence to independence and inter-dependence. In Children's therapy, my aim is to assist children to understand reasons for structure and rules in the home. They are also encouraged and given the tools to make good decisions.

I have worked with young children my whole career. I love working with young children as I very much believe in early intervention and prevention. The earlier a young child receives treatment the higher the success rate! I began my career working at The Children's Foundation which is a residential treatment centre for behavioural and emotional issues. I learned so much and I have been able to transport that experience and knowledge to my private practise. I have also had training as a play therapist which is a wonderful tool to have!

I have worked with young children for the majority of my career, specifically in a school setting. My primary goal in working with young children is establishing a safe, caring, trusting and fun environment in which children are able to comfortably be able to clearly articulate their emotions and feelings. Helping young children become aware of their behaviors, feelings and emotions are often key in guiding them further, and implement coping mechanisms to help them manage their presenting concern.
