Counsellor and Art Therapist

In V5T 3E3 - Nearby to Richmond.

With young children who require support and counselling, we employ very specialized techniques depending on the child and their presenting concern. We support children in expressing their feelings, and will either talk or use art making tools, or employ both in this important first step. We also employ arts activities and play in all sessions with children to best engage them and integrate their learning. Art and play are wonderful tools to reach and connect to children.

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.

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 have over twenty years of experience in working with children. I understand that children process information at different rates and often in different ways than adults. My Counselling approach is gentle, warm and age and stage appropriate. I help young children and elementary-aged children to manage their emotions, build friendships, organize their school life, improve their academics, cope with anxiety, understand death, grief and loss, as well as deal with family dynamics e.g., separation/ divorce. I use play, art, narrative and cognitive behavioural therapy as some of my therapeutic tools. I really enjoy working with my young clients and seeing how happy they become!

Social Confidence Life Coach

In V5H 3Z7 - Nearby to Richmond.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 .

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

In V3R 3Z1 - Nearby to Richmond.

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.

In V4K 1V9 - Nearby to Richmond.

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.
