Therapy for young children is about helping them interpret and communicate their thoughts, feelings, and emotions in a positive and constructive manner. The expression of negative or powerful feelings are channelled most effectively through play and art therapy with young children. Play therapy is a slower process than talk therapy, but it is a transformative outlet for a child's inner life and can help them identify the roots of problems such as anger. The therapist themselves are key aspects in therapy as their reaction to a child is way of validating, shaping, modelling, and teaching positive lessons and sending powerful messages.

I help parents deal with young children in a way that brings more loving and acceptance into their family. I often ask, what is your young child trying to tell you by his or her acting out or misbehaviour or intense emotions. In this way, we can explore together how the child's needs can be met in more positive ways, and how you can model more helpful behaviour and feelings to the child.

With the exception of abuse or extreme attachment trauma, the support I can provide for young children is directed at the parents. As young children are rarely in control of their environments, and are unlikely to have developed the appropriate Executive, Language, Emotional Regulation, Cognitive Flexibility or Social Skills for talk therapy (even augmented with play, art and music), parents are supported in collaboratively working to help develop these skills in their children, instilling perceptions of capability, purpose and significance, and personal power. Parents are encouraged to be kind and firm, emphasizing respect and connection.

Critically important with young children is to build rapport through an interest shared by the child and often this is better achieved through play therapy than conversation. I am engaging with training as a play therapist, and my current emphasis is on work with kids 12 years old and older. Once rapport and trust are established it becomes possible for the child to share information very sensitive to them, and this vulnerability allows problems such as depression, anxiety, ADHD to be understood and addressed through such therapies as CBT and play therapy.

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.

Children are remarkably sensitive to their environments, particularly to what is going on for their parents. Often, when a child is acting out or seems troubled somehow, it is a reflection of what is going on at home. Young children do not yet have the capacity to put into words what their needs and feelings are. For this reason, in therapy I use various types of play and art activities to decipher what children are experiencing and may need from their caregivers. I work closely with children's caregivers to help them gain insight into what their children feel and need. I assist the caregivers to develop secure attachment bonds with their children.
