Connectivity Counselling, RCC

Registered Clinical Counselor

In v5k 1b4 - Nearby to Richmond.

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.

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.

Art For Change, MA, BA, BCATR, RCC

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.

Steve Woolf, RCC, NCC

Registered Clinical Counsellor

In V6B 1N2 - Nearby to Richmond.

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.

Heidi Sheehan, M.A., R.C.C.
Child Therapist

Heidi Sheehan, M.A., R.C.C.

Registered Clinical Counsellor

In V0N 1V1 - Nearby to Richmond.

Heidi has provided child therapy for many years and has a counselling room on the Sunshine Coast, B.C. equipped to work with young children. Lacking the language skills of adults, young children use non-verbal forms of communication. Through expressive therapy, children can heal from their distress without having to talk about it in an adult way. When working with children, Heidi finds it beneficial to also offer sessions to the parents, as they often feel overwhelmed or distressed, themselves, by the emotions of their children. Parents benefit from compassionate support in addition to acquiring practical tools they can adopt at home to supplement the healing of their children.

Child Therapist

Tanya Elez, PhD, R. Psych., RMFT

Registered Psychologist, Registered Marriage and Family Therapist

In V3L 1B1 - Nearby to Richmond.

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.

Child Therapist

Britta West, MA, RCC, TITC-CT

Registered Clinical Counsellor, Clinical Traumatologist

In V5H 4H2 - Nearby to Richmond.

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.

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.

Child Therapist

Tanya Johnson, RMFT, MMFT

Master Therapist providing Holistic Counselling Services

In V4A 3H4 - Nearby to Richmond.

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.
