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.

At Bach Counselling, we are not set up with the necessary play area and tools required to work with young children. We do however, work with parents dealing with challenging social and emotional issues at home and/or at school. Parents come to Bach Counselling for parent coaching and guidance in addressing behavioural and emotional challenges they are having with their children. Often parents come in together to ensure that they are working collaboratively with the most effective tools and skills for their children. We also give workshops and talks on parenting strategies for successful parenting.

Counselling or therapy with young children creates a healthy relationship between the parents and the children, as well as a healthy connection with other relationships such as peers and teachers. This type of counselling and therapy empowers children, improves their self-esteem, their ability to do well in school and any activity they may undertake in their life. It also helps to make them more resilient in life, to trust themselves and therefore able to make healthy choices without fear.

I will often appeal to children through the use of art, music or play. Children have such creative minds and it is important to harness the ability of a child to express through creativity. Sometimes in our hectic lives, we do not give children the chance to use these gifts, or the television robs us of using these gifts. Narrative therapy is a helpful tool to find out what an ideal world might be like for the child. Play therapy allows the children the freedom to express their emotions within a safe environment. Play is something that we all need, in particular children and it is here that we may be able to act out some of the conflicts that we are encountering .

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.

Parents may be concerned with a destructive, needy, or unresponsive child, and rightfully so. Early problem behaviours are cries for help, and will only fester if buried and left unaddressed. Young children do not have the language to talk about their experiences, so it is helpful to watch their play, and, with their parents present, help them through the confusion and pain as it arises spontaneously. Children are resilient and often able to heal quickly with the right support. We work from an attachment based perspective that strengthens and sustains the bonds parents already have with their children. We will show parents what to look for, how to respond to their children's unique needs.

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.

Parenting is no easy task. There is no instruction manual. To the contrary, it is often difficult to know what is and isn't effective. Tired of bargaining and reasoning with kids who want what they want, won't take no for an answer, throw temper tantrums or melt down? I work with parents to develop effective strategies, provide support and let them know they aren't alone. I have 4 kids of my own, so I know the territory. I also facilitate a 4 week course for parents of anxious kids for the Ministry of Children and Family Development. Contact me for more information.

Watching children grow is a remarkable process, however there are stages of development that can be difficult to understand/ manage. Counselling young children is extremely effective as I would help the child develop effective communication skills, work through specific phobias/ behaviours and develop strategies that help reduce negative behaviours and increase their coping and communication skills. Through psychotherapy, CTB, play therapy and art therapy, children will learn to understand what their body/ mind is experiencing and will learn how to better manage their emotions. Therapy may include therapy and psycho-education for parents as well to ensure the child's well being.

I work with teens from ages 13 and up. Having raised 4 children my self I am very comfortable and hopefully knowledgable working with teens. Teenage years can be a very turbulant time for both the theens and their families. Working with teens I have whitnessed the anxiety and stress they often feel around such areas as peer pressure, friendships gone wrong, feeling lonely, unsafe sex ect. These teens , despite having loving and caring parents often tell no one about how they feel. The great benifit in counselling is that they "get it out" in a non destructive way..often avoiding overwhelming feelings that can lead to very impulsive and distructive acts.

I’ve worked with children and youth for all my career. Children do not want to be “talked down to”, they want to be taken seriously. They want to play. They will communicate their concerns through their behaviour, through art and play, songs and words. Children are part of a family unit. A child’s concerns = the family’s concerns. Belonging and attachment are key. I use a family systems approach to counselling children. Together, we will work to help each family member express their needs in the family, and how they want the family to belong together.

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.
